Years ago I was in need of a great gift for a lady with really good taste. I had more time than money so, I taught myself how to make decorative tassels. I saw some in the stores but it seemed like a color blind robot picked random colors to use together–I didn’t know anyone who could use a purple and orange tassel with a red and gold rooster on the top and $34 seemed like a steep price for a weird colored tassel.
But I loved the idea.
So I made tassels and gave them away as gifts which led to selling them which led to an etsy shop and a blog which lead to wholesaling which led to a decision between tasseling and blogging. I think you know which one I choose. But, the tassel shop was an asset to our family for years and it all started because I couldn’t afford a store bought, ugly tassel.
I’m so glad we didn’t have that thirty four dollars.
And you know what else it led me to? A crazily put together but stuffed full of lots of photos and easy to follow ebook that I wrote about How to Make the Most Amazing, Beautiful, Fluffy, Full Tassels of Your Life. Or something like that.
Is there a limitation you could turn into a business?
