Do you remember Psyche's four tasks, the 3rd task requiring her to set a goal (fill the flask with water) and achieve the goal despite fairly significant distractions (raging stream etched against a jagged cliff)?
Well, Jessica Gooley has done precisely that.
Jessica works full-time as a cardiac surgical nurse. She spends considerable time caring for her mother who's had a stroke, and in recent months attended to her daughter during a difficult first pregnancy.
But Jessica had a goal.
Which she's achieved.
I'll let her tell you in her own words.
I am a Cardiac Surgical Nurse who has dared to dream about creating a business to sell kits of unique and whimsical animal wall hangings. I took 3x3 pictures of felt wall hangings given me by my older sister, Jenni Christensen, a Utah artist. From those original 3x3 pictures I now have kits for 13 of these whimsical animals which include patterns, material, thread and instructions. Even though it is not listed as included in the kits, as people complete the kits and see the finished product they will also have a delightful feeling of joy as evidences by the smiles on the faces of all who see these whimsical animals appear.
I came about this dream by reading a “Dare to Dream” article written by a good friend, Whitney Johnson. Through this article and the encouragement of Whitney, I have started on the road to realizing my dream.
When you get a moment, please go over to Jessica's website and take a look.
If you have any ideas on how to market the Belly Button Bunch, why not practice a little systergy, and share your ideas with Jessica. Better yet, pass along the link to Belly Button Bunch.
Atta Girl, Jessica!
