This book has a lot of good information, and is certainly worth a read. However, it is a little or of date, and does not have enough information about websites, ebay, and etsy, so another source will need to be consulted for now information. Good overall though!

WHAT did I just read? This comes across as someone who is older who doesn't understand technology. Also someone who is in it for the money and not for the love, man.

I've giving this book 3 stars only because, in re-reading the synopsis, I realized that the book did deliver on its promised topics. There were checklists and basic information that would help someone who is completely unaware of the basics of starting a business. I had read it because I hoped to find a little more than the basics and was disappointed that it was so limited in scope.

This is a great intro. to starting your own craft business at home. Very general. Solid and practical advice for a beginner.
