In the Spotlight: Sharyn Holmes from Gutsy Girl

Hello and welcome to the place where bravehearts meet! I am so happy to have you here!


Please introduce yourself to my blogreaders:

Hello, I’m Sharyn and I’m a jewellery maker, mixed media artist and blogger in pursuit of living an authentic and Happy life.

How did you find out what your calling is ?
3 years ago I moved from my hometown of Sydney, to Brisbane. Shortly before we moved I took a class in Experimental Drawing at Brett Whiteley Studio. This reinvigorated my interest in art after a long absence from painting and drawing. After we moved I decided to pursue my artistic interests once again. I searched the internet for online classes and creative blogs. I discovered wonderful art communities where I connected with other artists and crafters who were creating and selling their wares. I was inspired by what I read and the art I saw. I knew that my dreams were worth pursuing too.

Please share your favorite thing about your business:
I love that I am following my passion and spending time creating with heart and soul. Painting is very therapeutic and I can lose myself in painting for hours. I enjoy jewellery making very much. It is a passion I have had for a very long time. I brainstorm and think about new designs every day, research the metaphysical properties and healing attributes of the gems and crystals I create with and then the hands on creating begins.


What was your bravest step?
Probably taking the leap into starting a business. I had considered it years ago. Back then, I didn’t believe I could do it. I was scared I would fail and I feared sharing my story and life beyond my circle. Today I know better. I know that investing my time and passion is very important and following my dreams is paramount to happiness. I feel that sharing my story is intrinsic to my business.

As you know I am a Dreamcoach where I help heartcentred people connect with their passion, mission, and vision. What are you dreaming about?

I dream about growing my handmade business and having customers who love what I paint and create. I dream about being free from fear, doubt and anxiety. I dream about inspiring others to overcome their fears and use it as fuel to following their dreams.

What are your top 3 tips to keep balance as an Entrepreneur ?

1 Take a break and don’t feel bad about it.

2 Keep a life & biz to do list /progress list. This keeps me motivated to keep going, reminds me how far I have come, and what things require focus and attention.

3 Make time for fun and regularly do things you enjoy – for example painting, watching movies, yoga, beauty treatments, relaxing bath, weekend away etc.
