Welcome to The Best Craft Business for You, the only course that teaches you how to choose a creative business that's the best fit for your unique strengths and values.
In just three weeks, you'll get focused, get organized and get started building your own best business.
Creative business opportunities have truly exploded in the past few years.
Exciting options have opened up - not just where you sell, but also who you sell to, and what you sell. You can use your creative skills to make and sell a wider range of products than before. And you can reach customers in many new ways.
Those changes have created new opportunities that you might not have considered.
Those new opportunities give you a lot more options to build a creative business that really works for you.
A more traditional craft business might be exactly right for you. Or you might be better suited to something a bit new and different. You'll never know for sure unless you explore, research, brainstorm, and do a little soul searching.
Either way, if you make time to explore your options, you'll be able to discover a business that meets your needs and fits with your own unique strengths.
You'll save time and money by avoiding mistakes and false starts that happen when you build a business without enough preparation. You'll be able to achieve your goals faster because you'll be more focused, and you'll be working with, not against, your strengths.
Plus, you'll be working in harmony with your values and expectations, moving toward your own, individual vision for success.

Lisa here from CraftProfessional. Since 2006, I've been providing online guidance for creative business owners. Before that, I worked as a career coach, helping people from all kinds of backgrounds examine their strengths, challenges, values, and expectations and build the right career for their needs.
I've always held a special love for creatives. The idea of making something out of (almost) nothing, something uniquely yours that no-one else could have made, is beautiful to me. That's why I've taken my career coaching skills and laser-focused them on supporting craft professionals.
It's no secret that creative professionals are often terribly undervalued. I want to play a little part in breaking that bias. I want all of us to succeed in whatever way we define success for ourselves.
It's easier to succeed if you're building from strength and good research. Throughout the course, you'll think through important aspects of your business, assess your strengths, look at challenges and determine how to overcome them. You'll also look for deal breakers that tell you a business idea definitely isn't right for you.
A business that is a great fit for you has a better chance of success because you will be playing to your strengths. You will be happier in a business that is in harmony with your values, and that will shine through to customers.
Your in-depth research will help you minimize big surprises within your business. Of course, you can't predict everything, but you'll go into your business armed with the best information possible. You'll avoid expensive mistakes, and you won't waste time building a business that's not a good fit for you.
You'll examine how your business choices impact your other commitments - family, a job, and anything else that's an important part of your life. You'll know, before you take your first step, exactly how your business will fit with the rest of your life, so you can pursue your business goals without compromising other priorities.
