really liked it
bookshelves: grow-diy

This book is clearly written and well tailored to its specific audience - those who want to grow their creative, crafting hobby into a business. I appreciated the nice design (it's from Chronicle books, so of course) and how the chapter intros/summaries each had their own page - it was clear what you would get from each section of the book. I appreciated their emphasis on mission statement and that it's important for you, your ideas and your business to have one, as well as the section on when you know it's time to call it quits with your craft business. I appreciated the frank discussion of pricing your work (very hard for creative people, but skimmed the sections about selling on consignment, order fulfillment and trade shows, which are very good for crafters to know, but not my specific interest. I like that the tone is realistic, yet positive and upbeat - a major take away for me was the idea you can grown your business consistently at a pace you can handle.
