About Handmade Brooklyn
One thing I hear a lot with regards to this blog is “I love that you’re so honest.” It amazes me that this is a rarity in business blogging…everyone falls down, are we not talking about that now? No one sent me that memo.
I fell on my face about 50 times, but each time I got back up. That’s what this blog is really about: Part cathartic release for me, part educational tool for you (and me!), Handmade Brooklyn is about my journey as I build my award-winning skincare company, Metropolis Soap Co., and the lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Some of it is about the right steps I took and some of it is about the embarrassing defeats along the way, too. I promise to keep posting about my experiences for as long as you promise to keep reading about them.
My ultimate goal, other than remaining self-employed, is to maybe inspire someone else to make the leap. It’s not easy, it’s not fast, but it’s worth every step you take. Business isn’t easy. It isn’t supposed to be easy. But I’m here to help you learn it’s okay to jump in and try. Don’t worry, we’ll do it together.
