Crafting Your Business

Ever wish you had a business mentor that knew the meanings of purl and roving andthe struggles of being a fiber hoarder?  For me, running a small business has been challenging and fun but having some wise mentors has made it so much easier! Whether you are thinking about turning your hobby into a business or have been in the game for a while this class is for you. 

We will explore a variety of topics from marketing, social media, value pricing and product presentation, to how to organize and tackle the productivity monster in a small business.  We will also walk through a business evaluation/brainstorming worksheet to help identify strengths and weaknesses and help you bring your vision for your businessto reality.

It includes the practical “Crafting Business Basics” booklet and a consultation session to ask questions, troubleshoot issues and brainstorm.
