Helpful Score: 4
This book is essential for anyone who has a hobby they want to turn into a profitable business. I found each chapter filled with great ideas and suggestions for obtaining your profit goal while enjoying the creative side of the business.
A good book, but not exactly what I expected when I traded for it. I expected something a little more generalized, but this was geared specifically towards starting a business as a CRAFTER. Very detailed in that it helped the reader to identify specific craft-making talents, but just not what I was looking for.
