10/10/10 Project-Dani Keith


Coming in on the home stretch of the 10/10/10 Project; "10 Women, 10 Businesses, 10 Questions" (Actually, in this case it is the 8/8/8/ Project, a couple of people had schedule conflicts). Each day, for the next 8 or so days, I will be featuring an amazing artist,  and creative spirit who has started and built their business from the bottom up. Each artist will answer the question . . . 

What part of your business have you delegated or put on hold in order to focus your energy more efficiently?

and on the last day of our project, I will share MY answer for the above question with you. Each of the artists involved will be posting answers to the other 7 questions so be sure to visit their blogs as well. I will provide links to their blogs after the answer each day. Have fun!

Today's answer is from Dani Keith.

brief bio:

dani keith has been creating for a lifetime. in the spring of 2010 she was set up on a blind date with metalsmithing, and she says it was instant, true and deep love at first fusing! {dk} is constantly evolving, and dani is genuinely excited to see where each turn takes her.

artist statement: "I find the beauty in the simple geometry of shape and transform metal into a story that the wearer wants to be apart of"

What part of your business have you delegated or put on hold in order to focus your energy more efficiently?  

I, like most creative entrepreneurs wanted to do everything myself, its part control and part plucky drive and while everyone, EVERYONE who is successful will tell you to delegate your weaker links to the professionals to free up your time for your strengths you still think…ahh I can handle it…well lucky for me that my other half is fluent in all things technical, so I have handed my website work to him…it is a small safety net, I know that while the hubs does all of the tech work I still have complete creative control.
