Who is Hanneke Barlow?
Hanneke marched out of a corporate job, black leather uppers in hand and decided that there had to be more to life.
With only enough in savings to cover one month to ‘make it work’ on her own.
Everyone was hesitant. Why would you trade security for anything in this world? Well, easily. Without breaking free from the downward spiral stealing your joy, you can never soar! Of course you have to have some sort of plan and most importantly, you must be willing to put yourself out there. You know that dream where suddenly you’re exposed and have nowhere to hide? Yip, that’s close to the feeling you’ll have when you put yourself out into the world, holding your breath while sounding as confident as you can.
What will they think? Will they think the price is too high? Will they laugh because I don’t have a series of doctorate degrees on the subject? Will they just laugh in my face because what makes me so special?
Darling, I’m here to tell you we’re all the same.
Every Insta famous creative who rocked up at my door had their own story of trials and tribulations.
Not even one came knocking with it all figured out.
I would look at their perfect squares and exquisite work and was gob smacked that even the brilliant ones were considering closing up shop because the pressure is so real & the money is never enough.
I want to take your hands in mine, give you a cup of tea, light a soy candle and tell you I have some answers.
