Balancing the creative brain with the business brain

I've been reading this article from Crafting an MBA by Megan Auman over and over again. OMG, I love what she's wrote and later decided to take the big step following her advise.

The creative part of your brain is the part that keeps you up at night dreaming of new ideas. But the business brain is what you need to edit and figure out which of those new ideas will make it to market.

Not every thing you make needs to be for sale.

Oohhh, I actually wanted to quote the whole article but the above sentences concluded all.

I like sewing, I can up the whole night, not eating but just creating stuff that I like in my little studio. I like making dress for my little Zahra, making curtain for my kitchen, my own tops, hijabs and any other things as a hobby. This is hobby and I decided that this hobby (making stuff for my family and me) will stays as a hobby.

What will I focused on? I'll focus on making the Asian style baby carrier: Mei tai, Buckle tai and Onbuhimo. Yup, I found my gem, things that I like to create and sew, the thing that I'm indeed enjoy and very happy making it.

I am sorry I will be no longer able to accept order for tops and such.

Balancing your business brain with your creative brain means taking a good look at which products make sense to sell, and which products don’t. It means coming up with an overall brand identity and choosing products that fit into that identity.

But worry not, this blog will still be up telling people what I did and if time permit, you'll be lucky to find a simple tutorial I make for you or if you're luckier enough maybe bump into an easy-to-win blog giveaway :D

Love.

  1. also about balancing our kindness (kesian nak tolak permintaan org), greed (asal ada tempahan je ambik) and our own capability (the creativity will decrease when we are too tired)
