Do you ever find that you have an idea but there is a stumbling block you have to get over before that idea becomes a reality?
Maybe, although it's tough to admit, that stumbling block is in fact fear.
Three years ago Hero was nothing but an idea. I was so excited that I had found something I wanted to do, but it was still only an idea. The reality bit - that was where the hard work was. It was SCARY! What if I fail? What if no one likes what I do? I was full of fear - I still am! But I now have a store, a team and a business that I am very proud of. There have been many lessons learnt along the way but in the beginning I took tiny steps and kept moving forwards.
How do you plan to take your ideas and turn them into reality? Making that move from messy brain to physical action is HARD.
If you're on the brink of starting something new, the following 3 steps are things that you can do TODAY to un-muddle those ideas swirling around your head and get taking action.
1) Create a vision
I know, I know you've heard this loads of times. But thinking about the things you want to experience and how you'd like your dream life to look helps to see the steps you need to take to get there.
2) Write it down
Make it real. Pour everything that is in your head onto paper and see what your idea - or ideas - really look like. Maybe you need to learn some new skills?
3) Take action
Write your first blog post, send an email to a potential supplier, buy the equipment you need. Do something. Sometimes I pretend I'm living my future life and imagine what I would do then which often gives me the confidence to take the action I need to take.
Have fun and good luck!

Hello, Great blog post…. I’ve taken your advice and written my first blog post! https://daisyrockvintageblog.wordpress.com/2017/06/29/oh-so-comfortable-oh-so-stylish/
I don’t know about you but I find it very hard trying to move things along on my own. I have lots of ideas for my Daisy Rock Vintage (Hobby at the moment) but struggle to do it all alone. When I do events I have occasional help but I mean on the creative side etc. I just wondered if you had any advice or tips you could share with me? Thanks so much xx
