Business Book - Craft Inc


Ok call me crazy. I am a wife, mom of three (2 girls & 1 boy) and soapmaker entrepeneur. When do you have time to read??? I make time. When I have to drop my girls off to school and pick them up, I have a "small" window of opportunity to read things that help me with my business.

My current read is Craft, Inc - Turn Your Creative Hobby Into a Business - by Meg Mateo Ilasco. It focuses on those of us that have a hobby that you love and want to take the first steps to turning it into a business. It is talks about finding your passion, naming your business, time management, producing your product for retail and wholesale, pricing. What I really love is the author talks about blogging, email newsletters and advertising. She is current with all the latest programs and technology that is available. Within every chapter the author interviews other indies who discuss the subject matter, pitfalls they encountered and advice for others.

I would highly recommend this book for inspiration to all indies.
