I recently hosted the first Quilterpreneur Retreat, with Liza Taylor, for my alumni. We held the retreat in beautiful Midway, Utah. Speakers from both inside and outside the quilting industry spoke and we were able to meet and network with many quilters in the industry. On the podcast, the retreat attendees share what they learned and their most favorite takeaways from the weekend retreat. Interacting with, getting to know and supporting those in your business community is so important! Hear all about it and why investing in yourself, making connections and gaining friendships with people who have similar goals and are rooting for you is so beneficial to your personal and business growth. Tune in for more on episode 129 of the Craft to Career Podcast.
In this episode, I asked some of my alumni to share what they learned from their experiences at the retreat. What stood out? What did you enjoy most? They shared:
I LOVED spending time with my quilty friends, some who I hadn’t yet met in person! I enjoyed hearing from other successful female entrepreneurs… the struggles that they have had in their businesses and how they propelled them forward. It was comforting to know that we aren’t alone. Business owners sometimes feel isolated. It was nice to be able to relate, to connect, and just be together to talk not only business, but life.
Community is so important for your own growth and well being, and for our business. If you are not an alumni, I hope that you reach out to those of us in the quilty community and make connections. Someone who can root for you, people who can support you and you them and help each other on this journey, really can make all the difference!
