As creative business owners, we thrive on feeling inspired. But what about those days when you just aren't feeling inspired or creative? I share 5 things that I do when I'm not feeling inspired to keep my business moving forward.

  • Work through it
  • Focus on other crafts
  • Do a "mindless project"
  • Take a break from the creative side of your business
  • Express gratitude to someone else
