As Cecil County Public Library's Small Business Librarian, I meet with a lot of people interested in starting a craft business. They have the idea, the product, the dream, but they lack the knowledge to take it to the next step. This is a great guidebook that will help pull everything together. The book is divided into two parts: Mapping Your Dream and Planning for Success. The Mapping Your Dream part delves into determining your goals and intentions, measuring your success, setting benchmarks and formulating your plan. The second part, Planning for Success, specifically outlines how to achieve your marketing plan and production plan within your budget. If you are serious about starting a craft business and making a living doing it, this is the book for you.
