Ecopreneur Design by Birdy27


I heart entrepreneurs! I think I started realizing this after spending probably 50+ Sundays at the flea market with I don’t know how many other vendors. Tweeting regularly on Twitter with bunches of other entrepreneurs also contributed to this feeling. We create, we struggle to get the word out, we put our hopes and dreams on the line, and ride against the tide. I don’t know if it is courageous or crazy, but we believe we can do the different and build a business and a life for ourselves based on our talents and creativity. This “forge ahead despite the odds” often strikes me as, well, strange; however, we do it any way.

So I’m ready to commit to my support of entrepreneurs. Will you join me? Do you know vendors in your area or on Etsy.com or Zazzle.com with really cool stuff? If so, will you at least consider purchasing from them instead of going to Macy’s? Will you tell others about the awesome, unique apparel or designs you copped? Will you promise not to just walk by a booth or quickly navigate away from the web page of a designer or crafter? We, the craziest of crazies or bravest of brave could use your help. For, after all, we really are keeping the American entrepreneurial spirit alive against the big boy corporation mentality. (Not that there”s anything innately wrong with that. But does it uplift the creative heart?)

Creating this cool new design for eco biz owners got me thinking about this. (Available on tees and other items through Birdy27’s Zazzle shop, Who U Be Tees, and on Spreadshirt.com’s marketplace.) And I realized I really do heart entrepreneurs.

If you think about it, you might just find that you heart entrepreneurs, too!

Chirp, chirp.
