Episode 089: Overcoming Fears and Investing in Your Business


Investing in your business can be a scary decision. That’s why it was so wonderful to chat with Grace of Maker Mountain Fabrics about her sewing shed. What is a sewing shed you ask? Well, for Grace, it is her workspace – a separate structure she built on her property to run her business from. But it is also a symbol of all the things she hopes and works hard for in her business. The shed is literally a physical representation to the dedication Grace has to her business and her commitment to the work she does – also to the confident decision she made to invest in herself.

For Grace the decision to build the shed was a “now or never” moment. I spoke with her about how she felt facing this large investment, what her motivation was, how she overcame the fear and what’s happened since she has had the shed!

This episode addresses something all business owners will face at one point or another: having to decide to go all in or stay status quo.

In Grace’s case, building her sewing shed meant saying yes to her business and its future. I’m excited for you to hear from Grace about how this investment of time, effort and money was a family affair and a true commitment to her business.

Grace can be found in all the usual places! Follow her for beautoful fabrics and sewing inspiration.
