6 things I wish I knew when building my creative business

If you have a big creative idea that you want to launch into the world this year, then stick around because I’m giving you a behind-the-scenes look into what I wish I knew when building my creative business.

This year marks the 7th year of being active in the blogosphere as an online creative. From the early beginnings of a personal blog to the creative business called Ditch Perfect that you’re visiting today.

Personally and professionally, I’m feeling both the weight and the wonder of those years. The first few years flew by in a flash. The Internet was booming, blogs seemed unstoppable + most everyone I knew was hopping online to talk and share ideas about personal growth, creativity, and our struggles along the way.

But, like everything in life, things change. Industries change, systems grow + the way we do business (and life) seems to be rapidly evolving at every turn.

I’ve taken this past week to remember what this all felt like when it was just me on my lunch breaks blogging about the lessons I learned from Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly + to look at what I’ve learned and what I wish I’d known going into this blogging journey that turned into a creative business I never knew I wanted (or could have).

So for anyone out there looking to start a blog, launch a podcast, or take on a creative project that might go on to become a creative business, I hope these lessons learned can come in handy in building a creative business that you love for years to come.
