You don’t even want to know the number of hours I have spent searching and searching for info on how to do this. I have spent 3 whole years reading every craft book in site, Spending countless of hours on the internet looking at everything I could think of on how to start up.. Plus went to college for an associates business management and admin with marketing as my minor. I know how hard it is to get a leg up in business, especially since I’m a mom of 2 living in a small town with no financial investments. So I’ve made a plan to do what I can when I can.
It is so awesome to see people helping other people and there are a lot of people with faith in others. When I found The Artful Crafters website, it made me so happy. It is a website with all the info on how to start and maintain a crafting business.
Here is an insert from her blog.
“My first career was as a special education teacher. After 15 years of teaching I earned an MBA degree followed by CFA (Certified Financial Analyst) certification. After 15 years in finance I was a vice-president and portfolio manager of a major insurance company before I was downsized.
Tired of the rat race, I opted for early retirement. Looking for something to do with all my free time, I started an at home craft business and am now making a nice supplemental income from it.
As a crafter and a businesswoman, I feel I have some valuable insights into the craft business that I can share with you.”
