In early 2012, I read a book that changed my life. I realized my life was happening in all the ordinary moments I never even noticed. To evolve into the person I want to be, I have to stop reading about what I want to do “someday” and actually do it — right now.
Since then, I’ve made going for my dreams and exploring my passions into a way of life. I’ve written an ebook started and maintained daily mindfulness and yoga practices, and made a serious dent in the excess stuff I own, among other things.
I also stepped up to the plate and tackled a huge secret dream of mine: launching an editing service to help solo entrepreneurs develop clear and consistent websites and create digital products that rock. (More on that over here!)
It’s an ongoing journey, and it isn’t always easy. But it’s exciting, I’m learning a ton along the way, and I couldn’t be happier.
Think about it: Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish?
When I started this personal transformation, I developed a philosophy that doubles as the name of this site. “Remade By Hand” reminds me that I can consciously, mindfully create anew any facet of my life so that it better reflects the self I choose to be; that this journey is my own; that I am taking it on purpose, with deliberate steps; that I need not discard my past or present self to make it.
If the idea intrigues you, you’ll want to pick up a free copy of my guide, How to Be Remakeable, and check out the Five Principles of Remakeability based on it. The guide comes with a set of worksheets to help you along the way.
Always remember: We are, all of us, remakeable.
A Community of Remakeables
Remade By Hand is a community for people on similar journeys. I call us remakeables. I am building this place to provide camaraderie for the ever-evolving, so that people like you and me have a place to come together for support, empathy, encouragement, accountability, and connection.
I would be so very honored to have you as part of this Remade By Hand community!
Where to Go From Here
I love meeting fellow remakeables and solo entrepreneurs — that includes you! Leave a comment on your favorite post and introduce yourself, or follow/friend/circle me and say hello. (Really! I’m quite friendly.) You can also send me an email if that’s more comfortable for you.
If you’d like to learn more about the editing work I do, check out my Editing Services page. If you’ve got a website that needs some copy TLC or a digital product you’re developing, we should definitely talk.
If you’d like to poke around, I’d suggest you start up top with the main pages and then explore past posts by using the links over in the sidebar. I share new posts on Wednesdays, which you can get automatically by RSS if you’d like.
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you’re inspired by what you read here, that you find something to connect with, and that we can learn to be remakeable — and maybe even work — together!
