#74 How to Connect with Designers and Bloggers (Part Two)

Build a community. Build Success.

This week we’re continuing our discussion from last week about connecting with designers and bloggers in the crochet and knitting space. If I had known this right from the start, I probably could have saved myself a lot of time and headache! Truth is, I waited far too long to start reaching out to people who were also crocheters, knitters, designers, bloggers…

Here’s one reality. Every success I have achieved has been the result of a relationship. That is why I’m sharing this mini-series with you. Because I know that when you start expanding your network, you too will find success. Last week we talked about the why and the how. This week we’ll focus on different ways you can potentially collaborate with the new connections you made last week as a result of my challenge to you!
