While this week’s Future is Female theme is HELP I find that it is my personal and business theme as well. This week, on Valentine’s Day, I finally found time to spend a R&R day at Kripalu Yoga Center. My intention for the day was to flesh out and plan the amping-up of my lifelong passion and career as a recycled textile artist/teacher/empowered, designing a way for it to better support me and my family.
Turns out that I need a little help in my studio to make my planned changes most effective and efficient. A job description for the first of a couple positions to fill follows. Spread it around. Interested candidates should email me a cover letter of interest along with their CV or Resume with Recycled Textile Design Studio Jedi in the subject line.
