More often than not, we are advised to "proceed with caution": whether we're driving a car, operating a table saw, or turning on a stove. And if those three words aren't worrying enough, symbols of a squiggly line, a severed hand, or a flame really help to emphasize the point.
While it's important to be mindful and take precaution, these warning signs tend to evoke feelings of fright and hesitance. So what would happen if "caution" was replaced with "confidence"? Would we feel empowered to try something new even if we were terrified?
Austin-based organization, Women.Design.Build, has adapted this motto as a means to inspire creative confidence and manual competence through design and building education. Now you can share the "Proceed with Confidence" message by sporting one of their sweet tees, an awareness campaign initiative in partnership with Wearable Hope.
