#craftbiz episode 1: Eat that frog and why you need to grow your craft business at your own speed and be happy with that!

Daily #craftbiz chat – talking about things which concern handmade businesses,
giving you a glimpse behind the scenes of A Handcrafted Business and A Handcrafted Marketplace – basically enjoying a bit of Craft Biz Chit Chat

daily #craftbiz chatter with Nicola SmithWhat is Daily #CraftBiz Chatter?  (I’m not sure about that name yet!)

Everyday – well Monday to Friday – till mid July I will be using FB Live over on A Handcrafted Business Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AHandcraftedBusiness.   Two reasons behind this – one I want to test FB Live and see how it affects page reach as I know this is Mark Zuckerberg’s baby at the moment and it really is the best option for organic reach!

And two because it pushes my comfort zone.  Now I know I am always creating video training, I run live Q&As for my Academy every single month and I eagerly run free webinar training too (in fact I just set a date for the next one – watch this space!)  so you’d think that this would be completely in my comfort zone!   OMG it so isn’t!!   I can’t explain it, but Facebook Live is completely different! It really does feel like you are talking to yourself.   I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but right now it is really tough – I am having to ‘eat the frog’!  But when you run your own business you have to step out of your comfort zone – so here I am.

So if you are around on Facebook and you see me, pop a comment on to say ‘Hi’ – it really does help knowing that someone somewhere is watching!  If you want to make sure you don’t miss a live episode then you can subscribe on FB for notifications, or I’ll be posting them all on my YouTube channel too – so you can subscribe to catch them there too.

‘Eat That Frog’   – a phrase which Brian Tracy coined in his book of the same name –Eat That Frog!: Get More of the Important Things Done – Today!
