OK, full disclosure - I bought a Glowforge a couple years ago with the intention of starting a new business, but it’s honestly mostly just been gathering dust. I’ve done a few simple things like ornaments and a few gifts, but learning Inkscape, designing, figuring out how it works, plus having alignment problems were too overwhelming for me. Also, I convinced myself I couldn’t create anything that someone couldn’t buy from China much cheaper. So I ignored the Glowforge and focused on my other (location specific) business.
However, we just transferred to a new state (husband is Air Force so my business can’t be location specific), I can no longer operate that other business, and I have a new passion to make this work. I’d love to connect with you all, follow you on social media, get inspired by what you do and how you make it work. Drop your website, Facebook/Instagram handles etc below, plus I would love any advice you may have about getting a business started with your Glowforge and how you got past all the hurdles. THANK YOU!
