Finally Did it


I did it. from Lori Eurto on Vimeo.



Just wanted to add a few things....

Not only do I want to change my daily focus in my business but my other goal is to start taking better care of myself.  Head back to the gym. Lose some un-wanted extra weight. And refocus my attention on getting pregnant.  I know it seems like a lot and I know I have to take it all one day at a time.

I appreciate all of your support so much. Last night on Facebook, I got so much love and I really appreciate all the encouragement. It's helping me feel good about my decision!!
Thank you!!

  2. Congrats, Lori!
    I think it's awesome and I remember our convo at Ornamentea in August about book proposals and when you were talking about it in the video, I remember how your face looked when I was asking you about it in the store and it was the same face, half excited, half completely overwhelmed! You'll be successful at whatever you try and the best part about the freedom is you'll get to explore and step outside of your comfort zone with new techniques and materials and you'll even get to take days completely to yourself when you don't even look at beads or art!! A definite new chapter for you and I know you'll be able to accomplish all of your goals.
    CONGRATULATIONS!

  3. Congratulations, Lorelei! You are such a beautiful, sensitive, talented unique individual! I have to say, your book really helped me in my approach to my work, and I love it when someone is able to find a new niche, define it, and share it. You have many more discoveries and wonderful things in your future. I applaud your bravery and your determination. Best of luck on your new life as an artist full time!

  7. I am so, so, SO PROUD OF YOU for taking this leap of faith and believing in yourself! That is the hardest part. Believe in yourself and you can make this happen. I promise. You've got what it takes. You will be so much happier in your life. I know it's scary when it comes to bringing in the money, but you've always done well. You just have to trust that. When you let something go, like the full-time job, all it will do is open up the door for bigger and better opportunities for you.

  8. Congrats! Yay you. I am so jealous as I would love to close my salon and stop doing nails but with hubby being out of work now for over a year with no unemployment I need to still work at the salon. My 5 year plan is to quit though so I am so excited for you and what is to come for you. ((hugs))

  13. This is exciting news Lorelei! I completely understand being scared. I left a full time newspaper position (staff photographer) to freelance instead so that I could have more time to immerse myself in other creative endeavors (aka jewelry design). Some days, I feel like it is the best decision I ever made. Other days, I feel like it was the worst. I am sure you will have similar days but know that as long as you follow your dream and your heart, the end results will be fantastic. Plus you're ultra talented and motivated, so you'll do great. Looking forward to following your journey!

  18. I've always wondered how you have been able to keep up doing what you do. You must have been so stressed and have been pushing yourself so-o-o-o hard. It's good you are able to take this step.
    I hope all your dreams come true.

  25. It will be a change but I am certain that you will do great. You are connected to many great jewelry people. With more time to devote to your business opportunities will abound!!!
    Have FUN!!!

  26. Good for you girl! I gave up my long term career a couple of years ago, all-be-it at a much later age than you. I remember the alternating waves of excitement and terror (and still get them) but I feel so much richer spiritually even though I'm financially poorer and am so glad I made the choice I did. I have no doubt you will be hugely successful and hope this will be the start of a really exciting time which sees all your wishes fulfilled.

  27. I can see you being an in-demand teacher traveling around the country and being a guest speaker at art groups about your approach to mixing colors, sizes, textures, chains and cords, various attachments, etc. I have never seen anyone as endlessly creative as you. You're going to do great!

  28. Congratulations Lorelei! How exciting. I am sure you are going to do really really well. I am so happy for you.

  29. I'm so happy for you, Lorelei! I still don't know how you do as much as you do in addition to a full-time job. You have more passion for jewelry making than anyone I know, and I know you will succeed and be so much happier following your dreams. I am excited to follow you on your journey!!

  30. Congratulations! It must have taken a lot of thought and courage to move forward with your decision but I'm sure you are going to soar in this next chapter of your life! Looking forward to your next book!

  31. Congrats on your big decision!! Taking care of yourself is always a good thing, and will help with the pregnancy stuff too. We are going to be doing the pregnancy thing again after the first of the year. I can only take so many months on hormones before I feel like a crazy person. Good luck, I'll keep you in my prayers.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
