Craft Inc. Business Planner" The Ultimate Organizer for Turning Your Crafts Into Cash

Every time I teach my Crafty Business Seminar I learn something new. Sometimes I think the seminars are as beneficial to me as they are the attendees. For instance last night I learned about Pattern Review tricky Etsy Relisting, Lollishops and Meet Up.

One of the things we talk about in my classes are all the fantabulous books and magazines out there all about starting a craft business. You might recall the blog post where I chatted about Meg Mateo’s Craft Inc. Well did you know Meg has an all new book out called Craft Inc. Business Planner? Most of my students light up like a Christmas tree when they see my copy. That’s because they all have Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business and found it so beneficial they can’t wait to get their hot little hands on the Business Planner.

Making a business plan is a daunting task. Naughty Secretary Club has been in business around 10 years and I’m still avoiding writing one. After flipping through Craft Inc. Business Planner it might actually one day happen. The book walks you through business basics, wholesale sales, trade shows, product lines and more. Some of the more mysterious topics in running a business.

Each section of Craft Inc. Business Planner is a workbook. There is a brief explanation but most of the book is actually blank with prompts for you to fill in the appropriate information about your business. There are lot’s of valuable nuggets of information from established crafters and bloggers throughout the book for inspiration.

Remember don’t over think starting your business, but don’t skip doing your research either. Craft Inc. Business Planner
in combination with Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business are the perfect guides to get you started on your merry little entrepreneurial way!

    I was actually a bit disappointed with craft Inc, as a lot of it was stuff I'd already figured out on my own. Looking at your post though, I am beginning to think I may give this new one a try – sounds more hands-on which is a bit more what I'm looking for.

I am super duper excited about Kari Chapin's upcoming book The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and On-Line. I have an advanced copy and it is pretty dang awesome.
