Today I have been truly inspired, and I want to share that inspiration in the hopes that it helps you on your journey to be your own boss.
If you don’t follow my personal blog, you may not know I recently decided on my life inspiration and purpose – to spread awareness for endometriosis.
If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I think it’s important to have an overall purpose (outside of money) to motivate you – something that’s been proven and promoted by a lot of wealthy and successful people.
Since I have discovered my current purpose – to help young girls avoid the mistakes that lead to extreme suffering and disability – I am more and more motivated to work through my condition to achieve that purpose.
In digging around to locate my Endo Sisters and find some inspiration, I’ve found an Etsy shop that is a truly inspiring, and creative way to make money and promote awareness for really any cause.
Plusheez is a store created by Marci Hunter, who is not only hand-making cute dolls that people will like, but it is promoting awareness for various issues that many of us deal with and providing comfort to those in need.
The first doll that I came across – which of course stood out to me – was the endo doll – which is something I think anyone who suffers from severe periods would really enjoy.
And that’s not all, she’s got plushy doll/pillows that represent tons of possible disorders and situations in which one would need comfort – everything from gastric bypass to brain cancer – with a current inventory of over 160 dolls that she makes on order and a following of over 1,000 Etsy shoppers.
I’m not going to post all about the products on Marci’s page here – I saved that for my other blog if you want to check it out, or you can go directly to Marci’s store here.
But I just wanted to make a note of it here for anyone looking for inspiration.
Once you find your purpose – which maybe you already have – find some inspiring ways others are achieving that purpose and voila!
You can have an amazing business providing something that people actually need and want.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite inspirational quotes, let me know in the comments any inspiration you might take from this and can share with my readers.
As always – wishing you the best in achieving your goals to BE YOUR OWN BOSS.
