Counteracting Business Blues

DSC_0348

Whatever you do, or dream, you can begin it. Boldness has genius and power and a magic in it.

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Currently reading Craft Business Power: 15 Days to a Profitable Online Craft Business by Jason and Cinnamon Miles to counteract my craft business blues and this was a quote they have listed in chapter 1. I think that this is a powerful message but I am repeating something a little more powerful from the paragraph above it…

“I am going to learn to sell online.”

I am not a business woman, I am however a crafter who loves what she makes and loves selling to people who love them too. To be completely honest, Youmacon 2013 was a bust in sales. I brought all these little guys home with me (as well as 85% of my other stock) and put them away in shame. I haven’t thought about them since. However they came out again today as I was working in my studio and the disappointment from the convention – along with all the other orders that haven’t come through – is coming back.

That’s life for ya.

I can only mope so long about this before looking for a solution. The first step I have chosen to take is reading this ebook.

Thanks for reading!
