This week I’m opening the conversation about slow business, and why I think it’s such a positive thing for my business, and almost any creative business.
I’m talking a little about my own business journey to this point, which is definitely busy-and-frenetic rather than anything that could be described as slow. I’m talking about why Ochre & Flax is different, and how I’m planning to uphold my own values within the business.
I don’t pretend to have all the answers about running a slow business, but I do hope to reclaim the term and to start the conversation around running a business which feels genuinely good, both in terms of what I’m making and how it’s fitting in with the rest of my life.
