"Get a Business License
This is a an annual license, usually purchased via your county clerk, that allow you to operate a business within your state"
This is obviously for the US readers,but do UK readers need a Business License? No clue. Following on from that, the next paragraph talks about DBA (Doing Business As) - Fictitious Business Name. This again is for US readers, and then after that paragraph IN BRACKETS is the info for the UK readers for DBA or "Trading AS" as it is known in the UK)
The other issue that I was surprised about was the fact that after setting up her crafty business, she made a lot of mistakes which resulted in her business failing and "I was forced to sell my home and pretty much declare myself bankrupt as I simply couldn't keep up with all the loan repayments.Read more ›
Easy to read and the author's logical thinking is very useful. I look forward to putting some of the ideas into practice.
I was also disappointed that there was very little mention of online selling through Etsy and Folksy. For a beginning craft seller, these are easy ways of dipping your toe into the crafts market, without committing too much upfront.
However, I will give it three well-earned stars as there was some really practical information that I hadn't come across before, and I got the impression this was knowledge the author had learned the hard way. For this info alone, I won't be returning the book or passing it on, so overall, it's a fairly good title.
Therefore, I'm still waiting for a UK version of a title that is as good as "Craft Inc" or "The Handmade Marketplace" are for US crafters.
i looked at few buisness books but decided on this one as its very easy reading, and you dont need a degree to be able to read it, lots of advice and help all in this little big book.
