If you like getting your hands covered in craft, then you are in the right place. I love that too.
Feeling exhausted after working with your right brain all day, oh yes.
Making things that people love and gush over. Oh, HECK YES.
Feeling downtrodden because you can’t quite seem to gain traction with an interested audience… no. Not as much fun at all.
It doesn’t have to be or stay that way, we can turn it around.
It’s not magic. You CAN make a living doing what you love, selling what you make.
believe you don’t have to do what everybody else is doing. There are so many possibilities within your own talents and it’s time to turn those crafty tendencies into profits.
You want to be proud of the work they’re doing, be the greatest “busy” they’ve ever been, and feel like your dream job isn’t just a dream anymore.
I’m Danielle, a craft business consultant who helps entrepreneurial makers leverage their talents and create sustainable craft based businesses. Basically, I am your handmade biz bestie.
I have been a maker my entire life, and while I don’t make clothes for my large family of American Girl dolls anymore, I’m still cutting things up and putting them back together. Embroidery is my craft of choice, but after growing a successful business from something I’ve loved since I was young, I’ve chosen to put aside the needle & thread (sort of) to give back a bit. I help makers who are so excited about the possibility of creating something from the art, craft, and design talent they have!
Are you ready to turn your talent into profit?
-Stop dilly dallying around, realize saving time is saving money, and get serious.
-Stare fearlessly into the face of business ownership. Okay, maybe not totally without fear, but with less fear.
-Spend time working on what you love, grow their business, and have flexibility in your day to day.
When you work with me you have access to all the tips and tricks I’ve picked up over my 7 years in business, thousands of transactions, and features in national and international publications – plus a whole bunch of other first hand experience. Oh, I’ll also use my experience successfully marketing and growing my business from $8,000 in my first year of handmade business to $74,000 in my second year to get your shop ultra-visible, ultra-profitable, and ultra-awesome.
As we work together I’ll show you the exact level of commitment necessary to build your brand awareness, keep up with your sales goals, and support your moneymaking business all on your own. I will help you build up the confidence and courage you need to snip, stitch, or solder your way into a whole new lifestyle. This lifestyle can even include glitter if you’d like. But no pressure if you’re not into glitter. I totally know glitter can be SUCH a burden.
I’ll show you how to take your product to market, get it seen and sold.
You will build a strong foundation for a career you are proud of, begin generating income you can depend on, and clearly see a future you control. You will feel empowered by the job you’ve created for yourself, the fact you made it happen, and the freedom you have to walk your dog at 2pm on a Wednesday. Or any other time you’d like.
I’m ready to help you turn this into something. Makers like you are creating new reality for themselves every single day and I’m honored to be a small part in helping them do it!
