That’s All Folks

waving goodbye

That’s it, nothing new going to be written here. Your most brilliant of advisers is off to play with other toys. I have hugely enjoyed doing this but I need to create some extra time to do other things .

It feels liberating and sad, but it makes sense.

I am going to leave the blog up so that you can come and dip in.

The advice list is on your right . All there waiting for your eyes and your action. If you set yourself one a month you will end up in a better place, so it’s up to you.

The media advice will go out of date so consider if it’s still relevant

Final Words

Nothing is as good or bad as you think

Put your bloody prices up

    I’ve just popped into a less often used email account and here you are, waving goodbye!
    I subscribed to your emails after finding you on facebook. I ran a womens networking group at the time and found your words of wisdom invaluable to them and myself. Many are/were crafter/makers who really, really dont charge enough… So your final words made me smile, they are as relevant now as when you first said them.
    Your no nonsense approach has been refreshing. Thank you for that.

    Very best wishes in your new ventures, I will do as you suggest and pop back into the subjects on a regular basis. As a garden designer who was in danger of being a ‘busy fool’, hard economics came into play and my prices have been increased this year (no one batted an eyelid) and I’m about to become VAT registered. Fact is, I really cannot afford to do ‘it’, whatever ‘it’ is, for nothing, someone is paying the fuel bill, and its me……No more! I either run a business or a charity, and I cannot afford the latter. So, your posts resonate with me too.

    Thanks again,

    Dear Dixie, Thank you for your blog and for all the sound support and advice you have given through it. I have found it useful, helpful and inspirational and will miss having new articles to read. I’ve no doubt I will revisit the blog though and i’m sure it will continue to help me. Thank you again and all best wishes for the future and for your new venture/s!

    Dear Dixie,
    This is very sad news indeed. But I am sure you have a lot of new things to do and explore. Loved your advice and your style of writing. Thank you so much for keeping the blog up as I love to read it and I have been coming back a lot of times. Whenever I felt I needed someone to talk to, or just a little kick on the rear :) or just to reassure myself that I am on the right path and that it is worth doing. Still on the fence about my prices :( as I feel increasing them will drive the customers away. You inspired me to take my crochet blog further and actually open a shop on Etsy. 2015 was supposed to be my full speed year but I ended up devoting a lot of time to family commitments but I plan to remedy that by the year end.Thank you once again.
    Wishing you all the very best in your new endeavours. Love and Hugs all the way from India :)
