It is taking looooooooooong to set up but we’re getting there! Summer is here and I’m gearing up to making my first batches of creamy salted butters to sell at market. It’s taking longer than I perhaps first predicted and I hope its okay to share my journey on here with you.
I turned 30 on halloween last year and made it my mission to do something, take control of my life and make something happen for me and my son. I became a mum young and quickly had to expand my understanding, we’ve done lots of growing, much learning to take responsibility. Such mega big changes to what I expected my life would be.
He turns 8 end of the month. This fact blows my miind!
He is my motivation. My chord. My ray of wisdom and light. My best teacher.
I wanted to start a business to show him that following your passions and developing a skill to share with people is a valuable and worthwhile venture. I’m on the path to achieving this and it feels like the right thing for me to be doing. It’s not however without its moments of making me feel extremely vulnerable and small in a big world of business and commerce. I’m feeling the ups and the downs keenly at this time. Breathe and let go.
Breathe and let go.
I must remember my motivations for creating a Butter Business. Butter is a passion, it feeds into so many aspects of my culinary life and is a deep love shared by many many people in this world. I am doing the right thing and for the right reasons.
While this idea grows and blossoms I remind myself of the roots to the project and the fertiliser feeding my ambition, my beautiful son, without whom none of this could be made possible.
Thank you for listening, I needed a space today to share and release. This isn’t just about butter but the person (me) behind it and my journey to fat fruition.
Back to the butter soon.
