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
