The last two months have been a complete exploration, pushing my skills and my energy expenditure, as I have spent every spare minute devoted to developing a line of Very Adult Coloring Books. I am super excited with how the first book turned out and how people have been responding. The last few weeks I've received orders from complete strangers all over the U.S.! woot woot!
I am learning so dang much right now, everything from physical paper qualities, to SEO, to playing with different marketing and advertising strategies.
One major lesson I am internalizing from this whole project is that none of us can do it alone. The enthusiasm of my community and emergence of hidden helpful skills from my friends is overwhelming. I'm feeling really grateful for good people around me. Trying to memorize how significant it feels to ask for help when I am needing help, and to see that people are excited and willing.
Now you too, go forth, try new things, and ask for help when you need it!
