Light­bulb mo­ment

Craftseller - - Letters - CARO FOSTER, MEX­ICO CITY

I HAVE LOVED CRAFTS since I was a child. This year, as I turned 40, I started think­ing about leav­ing my job of 18 years to turn my sewing hobby into a busi­ness and to spend more time at home with my girls. One night, I was think­ing about open­ing an Etsy shop. I took a chair into the gar­den, looked up to the sky and the de­ci­sion was taken in that ex­act mo­ment. I felt at peace im­me­di­ately. In July, I took a gi­ant leap and left my job to set up an Etsy and a Shopify shop, PokeStitches. My store may be lit­tle, but I feel so much hap­pier for it.

from bold­ness! Well done, Caro. We wish you lots of luck.
