#104 Start Where You Are

Kara Gott Warner is back with version 2.0 of Power Purls Podcast! After a short hiatus, she’s jumping right back in with advice and inspiration on “starting right where you are” to empower your knits and purls.

After a podcasting hiatus, Kara Gott Warner bridges the worlds of business, craft, and mindset with powerful commentary that will motivate not only your knitting, but all areas of your life. And it starts with stepping into the arena, as Brene Brown would say. 

We all have the tendency to freeze when faced with confusion, self-doubt, or fear, but Kara brings the point home that the first step to bring power to your purls, the first step to becoming a more intuitive, confident crafter, is opening to the fact that “failure actually means you’re making progress.”

"Are you willing to pick up your needles and trust what will happen next?” 

We’re going to be stronger, more confident, in the process.

Knitting is our passion, our expression, but in so many ways, it is a metaphor for our life. Whether we drop a stitch or drop the ball on a work task, we are faced with a choice: fall down or keep going. When we can embrace the messy, sit with the discomfort, we’re going to get better and better. We can keep going … together.

  • How to start
  • Why confusion is just an excuse
