Turn your dream into a Craft Business!

Hobby to Biz journey map

So… You have been thinking about turning your hobby into a Craft Business for a while, in fact possibly years and you just keep getting stuck.

Is now the right time?

Can I afford this?

How do I do this?


These are all perfectly good questions to be asking yourself... But that's as far as it ever goes.

Well, first of all I'd like to congratulate you, because today you took the very next step.

Let's get serious for a moment , if you are asking me, ‘Should I start my own Craft Business? Then first of all I’m asking you to ask yourself this… are you committed to doing what you need to do to build a business?

Yes, ok then... Let's get serious!

To make this new venture easy for you and to give you the exact steps I wish someone had given me at the beginning I have created a journey map taking you from hobby to business.

In it you will find;

  • information on the business models you can explore

  • the step by step route you need to take to get your business going

I wouldn’t change a minute of the 11 years I ran my own craft business and I want you to build something you can say the same thing of.

Hey There, I’m Sara…

I come from a creative product background where I successfully turned my own £100 investment into a six figure business in a niche area of the craft industry. Before that I worked for British Fashion Designers designing and managing diffusion lines. So I have experience in design, marketing, business and range planning, project management and on-line selling.

Throughout the 11 years of my craft business I taught a lot of colleagues and customers different aspects of what I did, so it seemed only natural to package these tools up and put them out there into the world.

In 2017 My Indie Life Blog was born - a place where fellow independent makers can find the essential training they need to push their business forward and create the jump-out-of-bed job they always wanted!
