New Year Resolutions

Now, I've given up on New Year resolutions- I find myself with the best intentions and then just not able to live up to them. So I call them New Year "Anticipated Improvements." So one of my "anticipated improvements" this year is to work on the branding, and business aspects of Dandelion Blu. The first of which is to create a professional looking line sheet or whole sale catalog. But if you are like me getting started is the biggest hurdle. So why not get some help?? And help is on the way! BEST is hosting a business meetup on Jan. 25th to get your new year and crafty business started off with a bang! Here are the details:

If one of your resolutions is to start up or refresh your craft business, we have a workshop for you! BEST will be hosting its first business meetup at the Creative Alliance on Sunday, January 25th. The meetup will feature roundtable discussions led by Cynthia Blake Sanders, MD Lawyers for the Arts; Rebecca Cason, former director of the Buyer's Market of American Craft; Jen Menkhaus, working crafter and one of the founders of the Baltimore Street Team; Nita Gale, web designer; Ariella Levin of Baltimore's Best Bookkeeper; and Thomas Wynn, professional photographer. Practical discussions will include legal and accounting basics; marketing, wholesale and pricing; and looking your best– on the web and in promo photos. Lunch will be provided, a great time to get connected with other local artists and crafters to make new friends, show off your work, and share ideas. Come join us!

Sun Jan 25. 10am-2:30pm.
Adv reg $25, $20 CA & BEST mbrs. Walk-in $30, $25 CA & BEST mbrs. Includes lunch.

Hope to see you there!

That sounds great. Too bad not in my area. I am trying to work on a line catalog too..but finding it more difficult than I anticipated.

I like the term "Anticipated Improvement"
