guilt – sew for profit vs. non-profit
On my “niche” post, I was feeling so over-the-top about starting my business, then a question was posed to me, which I took to mean to consider to sew as non-profit.
Now that idea is nagging me.
I want to start a business to supplement my income and my retirement if I ever get there. I’m so excited about it I could cry. I even sew for about an hour at night when I’m tired but it makes me feel less tired. 🙂 But there are so many others worse off than me. Is it wrong for me to want to sew for profit?
I have doubts too, but what if I lose my job? What if this business isn’t lucrative? I can’t think too long about those things because I want to spend my mental energy positively.
So my question is: am I being greedy for wanting to supplement my income when there are so many having hard times now? Shouldn’t me and my family come first? Is there a way I could do both? Am I over-analyzing again? Why do I feel so guilty?
