Don't Quit Your DayDream PLEASE!
Yes, you read right. DAY DREAMS are messages right from the heart. We all have them. They’re the ideas and pursuits we should be doing but have let other stuff get in the way. I know the stuff that gets in the way. Things like not enough MONEY or not enough TIME or what if it doesn’t WORK or I don’t know HOW. UGH Just taking that first step can be so confusing and scary that it stops us right there. But We keep thinking about those dreams and saying “ Someday" I’ve been there. I started CRAFTCAST.com 10 years ago as a simple little podcast. I had NO idea about computers or the internet, but I knew I wanted to connect with other artists and it seemed possible using computer tools. So here’s a way you can start taking action right now, and bring that DAY DREAM to reality. Click HERE
