small business time for a new direction

Small business gift guide #1

This Christmas, and with makers in mind, I wanted to create a gift guide with a difference. So this year, I’ve put together the #smallbusinessgiftguide, a selection of products perfect for the dreamers, dabblers and doers in your life (or even you!).

For me, the small business journey can be summed up perfectly by these three stages; you start out as a dreamer; wide eyed and excited about your glittery new business idea. Sometimes the excitement is too great, and you lie awake at night planning every product and possibility!

Then you become a dabbler; taking steps to turn your idea into reality. Perhaps you’re moonlighting every spare moment you get, working your day job and dream job on the side. (You’re also knackered! But happy)

Finally, you’re a doer. Your dream is now reality, and you’ve left behind the 9-5, for a life of 24/7?️, but all on your terms. You’ve done it! You’re a fully fledged small business owner.

So this week, let’s start with the dreamers; the people who can’t sleep at night because they’re obsessing over their new business idea. I picked this selection to encourage inspiration and lend a helping hand, to those important first steps in the small business journey
