Running a Business from Home Again

Posted by Maiko Kuzunishi on

This year is my 9th year since I started making clocks.

A lot has happened over the past years and I am thankful for each and everyone of my customers who have purchased the clocks I’ve made. Never had I imagined that I would be selling clocks for a living and I certainly had no idea I would be doing this for almost 10 years. 

This year, I've decided to move my studio back to my home. It's not the same house since we moved to a new location last october. The house offers plenty of space for my clock operation and most importantly, it gives me the flexibility to be more involved in my daughter's life. 

Since this year is leading up to my 10 year anniversary, I wanted to do something different than usual. I want to share my experiences and stories. 

It may not seem like much to some, but I’m excited about being open and share my experiences - I always like to challenge myself to do something that’s a little out of my comfort zone.

For many years insecurities got the best of me. Though lately, I’m coming to a place of embracing that aspect of myself that were difficult to embrace before. I spent majorities of my time either hiding my insecurities or working very hard to eradicating them altogether. What I came to understand is that insecurities are not personal flaws. They are instead, what give us characters and personal flavors. They are not these invisible enemies that you need to fight and defeat. They just need to be embraced wholeheartedly.

You’ve heard of the saying one man’s waste is another man’s treasure. You can look at insecurities within yourself much the same way. Once an enemy to eradicate may turn out to be your best asset. This type of shifting in perspective is something I have been very much fascinated about. 

I'm excited more than ever before, where this year will take me. Things are definitely shifting and headed for a new direction. I'd like you to join me in finding out. 

I hope to see you back here. Feel free to comment or ask any questions below.

  • I like your attitude. Definitely a good thing to be more expressive and show the world more of you.
