You know when an idea takes hold of you and you can’t see anything else? I’m experiencing that right now.
My sister in law suggested I somehow parlay my mad organizational skills into a business. She called it “feather your nest” as a play on The Robynbird’s Nest.
She suggested that I provide organizational services for people’s closets, pantries, etc., as well as packing for trips.
I should have taken photos of my bag packed coming home from Charleston as an example…but I unpacked it too quickly this morning to remember.
I haven’t the marketing skills to help it go from idea to income. But I have the organizational skills to make it work…
You know, the more this idea sits with me, the more I fall in love with it.
It reminds me of this children’s book by Kobi Yamata, beautifully illustrated by Mae Besom.
Pretty much the gist is the child has an idea but doesn’t know what to do with it at first, but it continues to follow him around.
But sometimes asking what other’s think about an idea isn’t the simplest thing.
The last page of the book says,
“And then, I realized what you do with an idea…
You change the world.”
Now, I don’t expect to change the world with this “feather your nest” idea. But I will say this. I changed my friend and mentor’s home. I changed my own home…several of my own homes. My sister in law is adamant I come change her home.
So maybe, just maybe, this idea has room to grow.
