How to Run a Successful Handmade Business & KEEP Your Day Job

I love helping my fellow crafty peeps out. I always feel a deep sense of accomplishment whenever one of you dear readers lets me know how much this blog has taught and motivated you to press on and become more successful in your life and business. I appreciate you and I practically end up on cloud nine every time I hear that you return that appreciation.

I love offering you guise help and advice and recommendations based on my own business and personal experiences. However, sometimes my response needs to be much longer than a single blog post, LinkedIn comment, or Twitter response. When I’m asked, “How do you do it all?” It’s hard for me to correctly answer in just a few sentences.

So I wrote an eBook.


… an it’s available on Amazon for your kindle or e-reader right now for $3.99.

In this book I go through the beginning steps of setting up your business (deciding what to make, and who to sell it to), how to promote those products to increase your sales, and how to manage your time so you can still do all of the other things that are just as important.

I set the price lower than a cup of coffee, because I really want all of you guise to read this book. In fact, I want to give a PDF version away to one of you for FREE.

  5. […] This group (also the kind of people who view the glass as half full, as you have probably guessed), think of their day job like this: it’s an opportunity to make money while still being able to work on building their business in their spare time.
