The Beauty of Community
By Jenna Herbut

About a month ago I declared to the Universe (and Facebook!) that I wanted to do more public speaking. I absolutely love spreading the message that it's possible to do what you love and make the money you desire. I believe in this message with all my heart. Within a couple weeks of making this declaration I was asked to speak 3 different times at the Craft Council of BC's Craft Invested Conference. I was thrilled and honoured to share my wisdom with my peers.

When I do any public speaking I make sure to focus on the audience and try my best to give as much of myself as I can to them. I'm also very aware of how they interact with each other. One thing I observed from the CCBC conference was how beautiful it was to see the craft community unite. During breaks I saw people meeting each other and sharing their experiences. So often when we are running our businesses, we're isolated from our peers. We do our work from our homes and studios and it's not often that we come together to share our stories.
