Otauna Pattern Designs no more :-(

Started writing this post some time ago and just haven’t found the right words to finish it.

To say I’m dissapointed is an understatement but, as always, I do my best to remain positive.

Otauna, the Dot Mandala company I work for as a Pattern Designer, has closed down all future pattern sales. When the CEO, Ginger, informed me it was hard to take. I felt my ego’s voice say, “BUT WHY???? After all the hardwork and effort we put in??!!!” It just didn’t make sense to me… This WAS going to be one of my passive income streams that would continue to grow and that I would build on every month indefinitely.

After giving it some thought, I reminded myself that everything happens for a reason and that Ginger (aswell as Otauna) is on her own personal journey. I can not question or doubt what she is going through, and I am infact honored that she even asked me to become part of Otauna’s mission, even if it was only for a year.

So, I find myself in this very familiar, and some what uncomfortable place again…. trying to figure out how I can create other ways of passive income! While I’m brainstorming ideas in the back of my mind I’ve managed to create 3 Ebooks. The first of many…

Let me know what you think! πŸ™‚
