I met Sarah in a bar last night near my house. Sarah is a beautiful woman with such a wide face when she smiles. The only thing you remember about Sarah after you have met her is her smile. Sarah is such a passionate woman. We spent about 2 hours chatting, and she invited me to her apartment to show me something.
“This is the cocaine of my life” said Sarah, pointing to a wall full of tens of hand made jewelries. I’ve never seen so many beautiful and creative jewelries in my life. I may not be the best person in the world to appreciate the value of jewelries, but I just can’t stop looking at them, touching them, and being touched by the colors and the amazing forms and shapes.
Sarah has been creating jewelries since she is 13, and now she 31. Most of her creations go to friends as gift, and few are sold to help her cover her costs. But, recently Sarah has decided to turn her long time passion into a small business. Friends have already suggested her to do so, but she can’t trust herself enough to start a business out of her passion. “I’m not a business person” she will reply to friends and relatives. “I know how to create, to dream, to imagine and make these things, but I have no idea where to sell them, how to sell them. I don’t even know how much to charge for them to start”.
I immediately fall in love with Sarah’s work, and made up my mind to help her show the whole world what I have seen in Sarah’s apartment. Today we have opened Sarah account on etsy.com, the biggest portal where creative people can sell their creations. We plan to start taking picture of all the jewelries tomorrow, and next week we will put a promotion on Goodbuzz, the brand new way of advertising for creative people to display their work and incentive people to share it with their friends and followers.
I can help Sarah, and I’ll do.
When time has come to follow a passion, the only voice to heard it the one that comes from the heart.
