My brain was flowing with designs. Not being able to draw to save my life I began find creative ways to communicate my ideas. I cut and pasted images onto google slides, noting measurements, and design details in the margins.
I looked at the slides with a sense of accomplishment and fear.
What if this doesn't translate and the manufacturer laughs at me?
What if I am missing an important element in the design?
It took me a day or so and some re-adjustments to the slides, before I felt comfortable enough to let go and try.
I never want to live with "What if I never tried".
I had spent years hunting for the right manufacturers and finally found 2 options. More about supply chain learnings in another post.
In the interim, even if you don't know...TRY. Because those who laugh at you, don't have the guts to try it themselves!
