Handmade Business: Take Action

If you're anything like me you have a million ideas and spend a good portion of your time trying to determine where to start (which blog platform, Etsy or personal website, LLC or sole proprietorship). Or how to keep going (what should and shouldn't be blog content, where do I source materials for my hand sewn goodies)? Or when to give up (do I keep running this blog series, should I keep paying for this blog sponsorship, do I keep doing giveaways?)...

You see where this is going right?

Well...I did something about it. First, I asked Gussy to be my mentor (she said yes...). Then I bought this eBook after reading a glowing review in oh my! handmade goodness.

Find the Roadmap to Action here.
I started doing the assessments today and so far I love it. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

What does everyone else do to keep themselves moving forward? What do you do when you're stuck is this lovely handmade and blogging world of ours?

    1. Kasey I love your creativity! I just got done with a scarf for my husband that I started a good two years ago! So I guess that answers the question about moving forward ;) From here on out I am sewing. Haha!

  2. Hi Kasey! I love your crocheted goods! I have never learned but I knit on occasion (and when I say "occasion" I mean it took me over two years to finish a simple scarf for my husband). You should post some patterns!
