Hello!

I just wanted to share with you this book I bought a couple of months ago.  Has anyone read Craft Inc by Meg Mateo-Ilasco?  

I love how it's not your average business book, it's light reading but thought-evocative.  And it has interviews with professional crafters who have "made it", pun intended.



It's really handy too - almost like a pocket book. I take it with me everywhere, as I am in the middle of preparing to launch a new line.

I wrote a short post on my blog here.

I own it as well, and I must say that I can not put it away! Highly recommendable, very helpful and opens your mind for thing you didnt even consider when thinking of opening your own business.
