I was tired of not feeling creatively challenged. I enjoyed the job I was doing, but I wasn’t passionate about it. I spent a lot of time grinding out my day-to-day duties, but I never felt completely satisfied or really happy.
When my friend Victoria gave me a pickling kit for my birthday, I never expected it to turn into a business. I never expected to become an entrepreneur. But, the more I made, the more I shared, and Sheena’s Pickles was born. My network certainly helped by sharing my jams and pickles with their neighbors, family and friends.
When you’re dedicated to your craft, to your art, to your business, everyone notices. Now, I am the driver of my own success. I can make my own rules and break them as I need to. I can push my creativity without feeling stifled.
