Meg's book covers every topic imaginable; taking the reader through the ins and outs of being a creative force in business.
From finding your creative muse, to designing your products and finding your niche audience; you'll also find chapters that explain topics in great detail, such as:
production, pricing, marketing, everything you ever wanted to know about your on-line presence, social media, photography, retail shows, consignment, wholesaling, and much more. Throughout the book you will also find interviews with several small business owners, who themselves, offer great tips and insights into about owning and running your own business.
Overall, a Wow read!
Out of all the books I've seen on this subject, this one offers maybe the most on those subjects. But it's still not as much as I'd like. There are a lot of questions I have that a book simply can't answer, because the processes, laws, and codes are different in different states.
This book has a lot of interviews with other crafters in it, and while that's sort of a mainstay of this type of book, most of the interviews in this particular book go on for far too long, and should have been ruthlessly edited (both for the length of the responses and for which questions prompted a completely uninteresting or unhelpful answer!). They come off as filler.
My biggest beef with this book, though, is the layout design of it. The text is fairly small, and to make matters eye-strainingly worse, it's not black... pretty much the entire book is printed in a shade of medium-dark green.Read more ›
