Acquiring Business Knowledge
Business acumen is a must when starting any small business. Many sewing businesses start as a hobby and grow into full-fledged occupations, but it is easy to get overwhelmed by business decisions and throw in the towel before you have given your business a chance to flourish. Consider taking some business courses if you feel you don’t understand the marketing side of a sewing business.
Many courses can be found at your local community college or online. Some courses to consider include:
Starting Your Small Business
Basic Bookkeeping or Accounting
Writing a Business Plan ( especially helpful if you are considering applying for a business loan)
Marketing Your Small Business
Marketing Craft or Sewing Items Online
