From Maker to Entrepreneur – Turn Your Hobby into a Business *VIDEO UPDATES*

The Craft Workshop

A special thank you to everyone who came out to my workshop back in August at Zen Trading Post!  If you weren’t able to make the workshop, I have turned the slideshow into a viewable YouTube video below to catch you up on everything you need to know to get started turning your hobby into a lucrative business!

As a small business owner, and crafter, I fully support and believe in supporting other small businesses. There’s a lot of competition out there, and sometimes that can rear its ugly head, but I want you to remain POSITIVE and realize there is plenty of pie to go around for everyone. Some people have tried to put us down through slander and competition, but we just ignore it, and encourage more makers to get out there and make!

The demand for handmade goods is huge. Just think of the success of Etsy and Amazon Handmade. Why? Because people are realizing the quality is just not comparable. Handmade goods are simply made better, and moreso, they are made by you. When people fall in love with who you are (and we know they will), they will want to buy your products. So go ahead and give it a shot!

Grab a glass of wine, a notepad, and put your brain to work. The workshop is about 50 minutes long and filled with valuable info.  We can’t wait to hear your feedback.

Dealing With Perioral Dermatitis

January 29, 2018

I look back on my youth with reverence and sadness. I never realized how beautiful my skin was. I would get the monthly period pimple, but my skin was clear, dewy, and vibrant. Youth is wasted on the young. All of this youthful vitality seemed to change when I hit my thirties. Suddenly, I was losing more … Continue reading Dealing With Perioral Dermatitis

Moments of Appreciation: A List of Daily Moments to Celebrate

January 22, 2018

It can be so easy to get lost in our woes and stresses; they are truly overwhelming. I don’t know if it’s because I was raised in New York City, or if it’s because I’m naturally cynical, but I need to make a conscious effort to be mindful of positivity and gratitude. This weekend was … Continue reading Moments of Appreciation: A List of Daily Moments to Celebrate
