Dream, Dabble, Do

We couldn’t celebrate ‘the dreamers’ without talking about our mantra that’s been with us from the very start – dream, dabble, do – beautifully illustrated in this gold leaf print, made exclusively for us by Yve Print Co. 

For us, small businesses fall into three categories: dreamers, dabblers and doers. It’s almost a graduation of phases that each business must pass through, on the way to achieving their dream. A little bit about them:

Dreamers – those who fall asleep dreaming of starting their own businesses, being the controller of their own destiny. They crave a more creative life, with balance and purpose

Dabblers – they’ve dipped a toe into the world of running a small business, and as they always knew, love it. This group moonlight any spare minute they get, dreaming of taking the plunge

Doers – the fully fledged small business owners. The dream is now reality, a life of 9-5 has been left behind, for a life of 24/7, but all on their terms.

From day one, our aim has been to advise and inspire this special community, and to help everyone become doers. No matter where you are in your small business adventure, we’re here to support you on this unique journey. We have such big things planned for this year that we cannot wait to share with you… Which camp are you in today? Perhaps you’ve got a foot in two, or you’re about to dip your toe in, at the very beginning? Wherever you are, be proud of this path you’re on; you’re on an exciting journey to achieving your dream – how special is that?

    I live on the small island of Antigua and I am at the Dreaming and Dabbling stage. Dreaming about how I want to develop my business and testing and trying to see what works. It's murky days yet but slowly getting better as I do more and when I use my hands more the ideas seem to take better shape, but I am learning it's a process. Thank you for this, it was inspiring, so much so that I am going to print it and put it up on my wall above my desk at home!
