A couple years ago I received an email from Elise Blaha Cripe with an invitation to co-author an eBook that would share our experiences as handmade shop owners & entrepreneurs. At the time, I had recently finished a 31-days series on the topic (Handmade Business in 31 Days), and although I had written 31 different posts relating to the topic, I had hardly dug into what I’ve learned over the last seven years. I was thrilled to hear from Elise, and of course I said yes :) I knew there was more to share and this was the perfect opportunity to fully elaborate.
I have admired Elise for a very long time. Her businesses are run differently differently than mine, and that’s what makes our eBook a well-rounded compilation of our creative journeys.
Building a Business: how to dream, plan, make, sell and share your online shop is overflowing with inspiration, advice, experiences, and resource links. Together we have written over 37,000 words with the .PDF being 114 pages.
We’ve organized the eBook into six parts, and included a BONUS section on “balancing” work and parenthood. Click here to view the table of contents and purchase our 114 page eBook for $12.
The ebook is available in three different formats: .pdf, .mobi and .epub. Read it on your tablet or mobile device, or print it out and use the margins to make notes. (Thank you Alexandra Rae Design’s for your help with the file formatting!)
I hope you’ll take a peek! Inspiration is all around you.
This is awesome. Congratulations on completing this amazing venture. I am certain that all of the heart and wisdom will inspire many to start their own shop! Woohoo.
Exciting, Maggie! Big congratulations to you!
This is the BEST NEWS!! of all the blogs I’ve read over the years, yours and Elise’s are the ones I still check in on… (and Posie Gets Cozy) and you two are just the perfect match for this type of project. You both have the same can-do spirit and willingness to share how you’re doing things and what is working and what is a struggle… I am SO EXCITED to read it!!! Congrats!
