It's Business Time!

There's so much to learn about having a business and it can be totally overwhelming. Real talk here... my first business was a huge flop. I made hair bows and they were beautiful. But I made some serious business mistakes and I ended up way in the hole. After shutting that down, I swore I would never have another business. But then hand lettering came along and before I knew it, I was doing it again.

This time I didn't make those same mistakes and I was able to use my lettering to take some of the financial burden off of my husband and have a little extra spending money for activities for the kids. I kept working at it and eventually I was able to quit my "real" job to spend more time with my kids and the rest of the time doing the lettering that I love.

It's taken a lot of work. I've had to spend hours every day learning more about business, essentially putting myself through business bootcamp, and constantly pushing myself further. Along the way I've learned a lot about what to do, what to avoid at all costs and what is actually manageable and realistic while you're trying to also balance the needs of a family and a life.

And that's where Turning Your Hobby into a Jobby comes in. I want us to work together to help you avoid the painful, yet common, mistakes that I made, teach you the manageable tips and tricks for running a successful business and set you up with a shop destined for big things!
