Are You a Confident Glass Artist?

Here at Ed Hoy’s International Wholesale Art Glass and Supplies we want to help you become a more confident glass artist.  We know that confidence is key when running a successful glass business. We are not talking about cocky, arrogance. We are talking about confidence. Believing in yourself and in your work no matter what the naysayers say.

Marketing Guru, Seth Godin talked about this in his recent blog post, Confidence is a Choice, Not a Symptom:

The batter has already hit two home runs. When he gets up to bat for the third time, his confidence is running high…

It’s easy to feel confident when we’re on a roll, when the cards are going our way, or we’re closing sales right and left. This symptomatic confidence, one built on a recent series of successes, isn’t particularly difficult to accomplish or useful.

Effective confidence comes from within, it’s not the result of external events. The confident salesperson is likely to close more sales. The confident violinist expresses more of the music. The confident leader points us to the places we want (and need) to go.

You succeed because you’ve chosen to be confident. It’s not really useful to require yourself to be successful before you’re able to become confident.

So, what is stopping you from being a confident glass business owner? Figure out what it is and tackle your fears head on. You can do this! How can we help?
