Thursday Thrifty Throwdown: Indulge Yourself Challenge #7

Posted by   + Show Post

Ohhh, Thurs-day, la di da! Indulge Yourself Challenge #7, cha cha cha! I'm doing the happy dance because I love making people get inspired, indulge in their dreams, and save money at the same time. Really...you can do it. Here are some fantastic ways:

Read a book. Go to the library, head to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and read about your dream. Say you are a baker. There are a bunch of books on how to create a website to get your business to the masses, as well as manuals on creating business plans.

Email the experts. Don't be afraid to reach out to people in your business or doing what you want to do. Say you are a jewelry maker or a embroider. Head to Etsy, see what people are doing similar types of products and email them. Say you admire what they do and ask how they got started. Admit you are looking for advice...you would be surprised how many people will give it to you.

Join an organization and go to the meetings and conferences. There are tons of societies out there for women in any area of business, and they often host expert speakers that are knowledgeable and helpful. Do some Internet research and find those talks in your area or nearby. Say you want to start your own blog? There are great meetings that BlogHer and others organize to help everyone, no matter your skill level. Get inspired to make that dream happen.

How do you stay inspired? What do you do to indulge that big life dream?
