This blog is dedicated to creators who want to build a real business out of their craft. But maybe aren’t sure it’s even possible.
Is that you?
Maybe you’ve got a weird little niche that you think like 3 other people besides you would be into.
I hear you. I’ve got a craft business that no one ever believed was worthy of becoming a business.
“That’s really cute, Staci Ann. But you should prolly think about getting a real job.”
My business now does 7-figures per year in revenue.
I was a stay-at-home mom who got married young, and didn’t finish college. I started out selling my handmade ornaments on eBay and Etsy, and even though I told everyone I had a business….. what I really had was a glorified hobby. In fact, in my first full year ‘in business’, I made -$4K and some change (the change was also a negative amount).
And then about a year or so after I started selling, I became a widow, and single mom of 2 little kiddos. Things got tough for us, and more than anything, I wanted to remain a stay-at-home mom for my grieving babies.
So, I did.
This site is my journal about getting there. Stuff I’ve learned, stuff I’ve messed up, and the stuff I’m still figuring out.
When I first started this blog a few years ago, I thought… I’ll teach other handmade sellers what I know!
But it turned out… the more I knew, the more I knew I didn’t know (okay, that was a mouthful).
And so now, this has just become kind of a personal blog as I learn new things & make mistakes (and try to fix them). But, it’s honest, and I hope, helpful.
Thanks for being here!
