Business plan

This weekend, between time spent on the couch cursing the migraine gods, I picked up a copy of Craft, Inc. It is basically a (really pretty) guide to starting your cottage-industry art business. Ever since I heard about the book, I've been wanting to read it. If I hadn't been in so much pain yesterday, I likely would have finished it. A lot of it is stuff I already knew -- how to register your business and such -- but it's still incredibly helpful to see it all laid out in front of you. In fact, I'm feeling so inspired by the book, I'm currently working on my first business plan. After that, I am going to kick myself into high gear and start marketing, getting stuff into and shops and even debut a line. I can't wait!

Oh, and look what comes out September 9, the day before my birthday? It's the Craft, Inc. Business Planner. Oh birthday elves, are you listening?

That sounds like a good book. I might to check that out, so I'm not wondering aimlessly forever!

I think I might need to read this book too! I am pretty clueless for the most part when it comes to turning my craft into a successful business, so I normally don't even try. But that's no way to be.
