In this web seminar you’ll: learn what it takes to have a successful small business and how to assess if this is the right career for you – and explore some options if it isn’t! Darcy will discuss whether your business should be online or physical store-front; what kind of space you’ll need and how to get customers. We will walk you through the questions you should be asking, and teach you how to think about your business and research your market. We’ll also give you some alternative options for selling if you decide being a business owner isn’t right for you. Register for Monday’s web seminar if you’re a small business owner-hopeful who would like information on opening your own sewing/crafting or fashion business

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to attract and keep customers
  • How to choose between an online-only business vs a physical store-front
  • How to manage your inventory
  • How to leverage local resources and apps
  • How to plan your finances

Who Should Attend:

  • Artists/sewers/crafters who want to sell their wares but aren’t sure if they should open their own business.
  • Entrepreneurial types who need a little help walking through all the things you need to think about.
  • Small business hopefuls who are overwhelmed at the thought of their own business and aren’t sure where to begin.
  • Businesses that are already open, but aren’t doing well – maybe they overlooked some of the details we’ll cover.

Have a question about a specific technique? There will be a Q&A session at the end of the web seminar where you can ask Darcy any questions you have, and no question goes unanswered!
