” Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
One of the first lessons that artisan brands learn when building a business is that perseverance is part of the journey.
It’s one thing to make products that you love, and to turn that passion into a business.
But it is another thing altogether to make that business a success.
A labor of love, a sacrifice – regardless of the label you choose to apply to your venture, you MUST be willing to push aside fear, insecurity and discomfort to see your dream come true.
I often get asked what it takes for an artisan brand to break through obscurity, to become a brand that people seek, and my first response is always perseverance.
Many people are skilled at making products. Many people have talent. However, it is the rare few who will persevere to the degree that entrepreneurship requires.
At the Artisan Empire, we support those who are willing to endure the struggle, willing to put in the time and the energy to take a dream and grow it into an empire.
