Yay for new books! I just got two from Amazon:
“Craft, Inc. Revised Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Turning Your Creative Hobby into a Successful Business” by Meg Mateo Ilasco and “How to Make Money Using Etsy: A Guide to the Online Marketplace for Crafts and Handmade Products” by Timothy Adam. As my creative juices continue to flow, I’m finally sitting down to pursue my dream of starting an Etsy site! I’m arming myself with as much knowledge as possible before I dive into a new business.
I’ve started reading “Craft, Inc.” and so far, I’m loving it! As the author points out in the first chapter, there’s no better time to turn what you love into a business than right now! Her voice is realistic – no you will not turn a profit right away, it could be a year or two before you actually do – yet optimistic – why not give it a shot, because with enough passion, “planning and determination you can achieve more than you ever thought possible.” So far (I’m only in the second chapter), it’s a very motivating and informational read. I will let you know what I think of the book when I finish!
Stay Curious! xo…Alane
