Ideas are everywhere!!!
I am just putting a quick post out tonight. I am working on plotting and planning some product Ideas here at Crazy Girl Brain. Creating for me can be very messy and chaotic. But I usually get the job done. How do you create? Are you working on anything at the moment?
When I am in a messy and chaotic creating and planning mode I usually have things strewn over my bed (largest space available) and then start sorting from there, Then I grab boxes of materials and supplies and choose what I need to complete projects and make a list of things that I may need to purchase as well.
This process for me can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an all day ordeal. But it is a great way for me to empty my brain and form a plan.
What helps you to empty your brain? What products do you like to create the most? Do you like to bounce ideas off of others to get feedback before making the product or do you like make something and then gauge what the reaction is?
Whatever your process is, take advantage of those chaotic moments and CREATE!!!
Much Love all my Sunshiny Faces!!

I am at the point that I have so many ideas that they are all running together. I have so many things that I want to learn how to do that I do not know where to start! I am excited, anxious and nervous all at once. GEEZ! I want to be able to start doing more but….I need to step back, look at my plan, calm my brain down a couple of notches(Like that’s gonna happen..pffish) and just realize that I am new at this and I will make mistakes, I will take time to learn more and that it cannot not be done in 1-2 days.WHEW!! I feel better now. Just had to get that off of my chest. It has just been one of those days. Everything running through my brain all at once! But I read something earlier and it made a whole lot of sense to me . Morgan over at morganbattista.com says “While it’s true that you need to be focused and find a niche, it doesn’t mean you have to abandon all of your ideas. Not at all actually. It’s just that you can’t do ALL of them at once. ” Well….I think my brain made an audible exhale! Those two sentences immediately calmed my thoughts to a low roar. So tonight I am going to take more time to sort my ideas, thoughts and what I need to learn more about and organize them in a manner that works for me and start checking each one-off and feel confident that I am doing what I need to do for my business and myself. I want to ignite some sparkle in myself, my family and business.
I hope that my babblings have helped at least one of you. I would love to see others sparkle their worlds as well.
I wanted to say hello to everyone again. My name is Amber. I am REALLY new at blogging. This is something I started for many personal reasons. Starting up is, well, actually overwhelming. But it is also interesting, compelling and informative. There is also the support aspect that is out there for new bloggers as well as for bloggers that have been at it for a while. The information overload was almost more than I could deal with. But, I sat down, wrote notes, Started a journal and calmed down. When you start looking at blogs/businesses you think “how can I ever get to that level?” Well, you do not start out at that level. You start small, you get a feel for what works for you, you listen to others who have been there first because they have experience and wisdom and then you take your first step. And believe me it is a shaky one! But you did it, you are still there, no one is standing over you trying to drag you down and you feel confident. Then you run back to the people that you found with the information that spoke to you and you find they also had those same feelings. Now about the people you find with help, information and support. Everyone finds different people. They are the ones that fit in with your ideas. For me, I found seven people that I fit with. I have read, took notes, clicked links, thought deeply, took courses and then did it all over again. I would like to thank them for all of their help, insight, knowledge and most of all, they all said you can do this! So I did! This is a new beginning for me. I wish everyone love and luck!
