Hello fellow crafty entrepreneur!
Over the years of my online crafting journey, I have found myself knee deep in entrepreneurship. Working through the ins and outs of building a business, managing time to be crafty as a hobby, and also wanting to have a business that actually makes some real profit.
I started with an Etsy Shop and quickly converted to a blog about crafting. But with my background in business and my love of numbers, I always found myself wanting to help other creatives build their business. That’s when I decided to start a business helping other creative entrepreneurs in the online world.
I loved crafting as a hobby and finding ways to make money from it, but even more, I loved helping others spread their creative message and business with the world.
Helping other female creative entrepreneurs has brought me so much joy so they can find success in their creative businesses. I have been able to pair our skills with my Left Brain logistical, analytical, and numbers centered thinking with their Right Brain creativity so their business could soar. It’s the perfect pairing, plus, I totally get that Right Brain creativity since I’m a crafter and creative myself!
As I have dove further into helping other female entrepreneurs, I have found that there are three areas that I love (and most business owners hate) and it all focuses back on those Left-Brain skills.
I truly believe that you cannot have a successful business without having a solid foundation. And in the business world, a solid foundation comes from the backend of your business. More specifically, your Accounting, Data, and Operations/Systems.
I know that sounds heavy, especially for those of you who are tried and true Right-Brain creatives.
- Without keeping track of your expenses and managing your revenue, you cannot grow into the thriving business that you want..
- Without the right kind of systems in place to help you delegate tasks, hire out help, or just fulfill orders you won’t be able to focus on creating more products to delight your customers..
- Without the right data and information from your business, you will be running blind in the digital world, not know where you should be focusing your efforts when it comes to advertising, marketing, and community building..
It is a lot to take in, but if you are a business owner, you know that at least one, if not more than one, of these areas needs improvement in your business.
This is why I’m passionate about helping entrepreneurs figure out how to build a solid foundation in their business so they can focus back on their creativity and feel confident that the backend of their business is taken care of.
