The Art of Trust

We can't believe it,  this week we are participating in the last week of the Declaration of You Blog tour. The Declaration of You! is written and designed by fellow artist friends Jessica Swift and Michelle Ward. We want to give a great big shout out to these two wonderful Working Girls and their awesome team for coming up with the book and blog tour idea. It's been a lot of fun and we we're thrilled and honored to be a part of this wonderful creative process.

So this week it's all about trust and that can mean many things to many people. For us, Trust is about knowing that the art we are bringing into the world is worth designing and sharing. If it cheers someone up, makes them laugh or even turns a bad day completely around, then we are accomplishing our goal. Choosing a career in Art Licensing is not always easy, there are times when our artwork and written ideas are rejected and that never feels good. But the truth is, we believe in what we are doing and whether you are a yoga instructor, hair stylist, first grade teacher to licensed artist, it's important to always have your own back and be your own cheerleader. Believe in what you are doing, believe you are making a difference. What you do does create positive changes in peoples life and adds value to the world. 

It's hard to believe that just a few short years ago, Jodi and I were sitting around her kitchen table with just a dream of this business and now it's a reality. It's taken us to London, Atlanta, and New York and more than likely we'll be visiting China within next 12 months! We didn't put any limitations on what we could do, we just focused on what we wanted and trusted the creative process.

Basically it all boils down to this, don't ever let anyone tell you can't do something. If the dream is in your heart then with enough effort, work and dedication your ideas can and will become reality. We've brought 3,000 products into the world, some were easy and some took years but at the end of the day, our belief and trust in our abilities is what made it happen. If we can do this, you can too, your only task is to do it your own way in your own style! We wish you much success on your journey, here's to your continued success!
