2020 Planner - Join the Notification List Here!
I had a small business making planners and planner stickers, while looking after my two young children. Though I had some experience with Adobe Illustrator, I was a bit frustrated with my lack of skills in the software and researching YouTube became too time consuming.
I love making art, but I wanted to make art that wasn’t just going to sit in a sketchbook – that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted to make something more with it – I wanted to create a business with my art and create fabric that I wanted to see in the world.
I signed up for the course at the last possible moment. (Yes, I am THAT person!) I am an enneagram 6, I analyse everything to the point of paralysis, it can be a huge burden and that has stopped me from achieving many things in the past. I think what made me sign up for this course was a realisation that I need to make some decisions with faith and courage, so I invested the money I had saved from my small business earnings.
I was worried about spending that amount of money on myself, then finding out that the course wasn’t what I was expecting it to be and then being full of regret. Well, none of that happened!
I also love that I learned so much about myself. This was like a university course for me, and I had a baptism of fire to be kinder to myself and to keep striving for excellence but not perfectionism, which is actually fear in disguise and fear is not permitted to drive – as Ms. Elisabeth Gilbert has taught us.
I would say to anyone on the fence about Immersion, I get it. I was on the fence too, but investing in your education is one of the best investments you can make. Ask yourself, “Who benefits when I put my dreams on hold?” and listen to your intuition.
