1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Selling my Craft Business (Suncatcher Eyes) on: December 04, 2008 06:10:50 PM
I hope this is the right place to post this.

I have an incredible job opportunity that I can't pass up. I have an interview to get my old job back as a medical transcriptionist that I had before I got sick. I'm so excited!

I need to put all of my energy and focus into this job and so I must sell Suncatcher Eyes (the business). I don't want to just have it come to an end. That would be such a shame as that would be letting down a lot of customers, and it is a good revenue producer. It is equivalent to a part-time job with better than part-time pay. My sales have doubled over the past year, and I expect them to keep growing. All of my business was conducted through PayPal, so I can provide printouts/screenshots of sales for any months you'd like to see (for serious inquiries only please).

I would love to keep it, but I can't say no to a matching 401k, full medical and dental benefits, and life insurance. I've gone without insurance long enough, and it isn't fun at all. Did I mention I get to work at home in my jammies?

I am contemplating selling the business for one year's worth of income it produces. I know I should sell for more, but to be honest I want a clean start when I start my new job.

Has anyone else had experience selling an online business? It will include all of my supplies (about 2-3 months' worth), my wholesale contacts, packaging, shipping materials, paints, 2 websites, blog, Flickr group, all of my digital files and photographs of the product, and unlimited support to get whoever buys it up and running.

Oh, and that also means I may not be writing and sharing any more crochet patterns. I haven't decided what to do with the ones I have for sale. Give them all away for free perhaps? I don't know yet.

So when you don't see me online anymore, don't worry. I'll be happily typing away at home

Does anyone have any advice?

These are the Fuzzballs, made out of bamboo yarn.  Special thanks to Wibit for reminding me about the brushing technique.  I forgot how fun this was!

This is a new style of bear for me, even though they've been around a while.  Not sure if I'll be writing a pattern for this one or not.  I want to make a few more of these little cuties first!

Dudley is the first amigurumi bird of spring.  She can't wait to get her beak on some big juicy worms.
