How I Turned My Hobby Into A Business

Melissa J. Will

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


What's it really like to turn a hobby into a business? This stay-at-home mom with a love for color, sewing, and fabric dyeing found herself with far more fabrics than she could ever use. Intending to open a simple home-based mail order business, the online shop flourished, taking the business in unexpected directions.

This personal story reveals some funny and frustrating struggles as Melissa discovers she had to be the creative director, manufacturer, marketer, bookkeeper, online shop designer, postmaster, and company cheerleader all rolled into one.

While it can be quite thrilling to make money doing what you love, there were plenty of obstacles along the way for this rather humorous, self-proclaimed introvert as she struggled to balance business regulations, some overzealous customers, expansion ideas, and her own artistic needs while caring for her family amongst the dye pots and mail parcels.
