The Home Craft Business is a powerful resource for enthusiastic crafters who need to distinguish between what has the potential to become a certifiable business, and what should remain a hobby. It has twenty-three lessons packed into 165 pages of advice, examples, and tips on keeping your head above water as you carefully and safely build your home business.
