Business Tip of the Week :: Take an E-Course

Most handmade business entrepreneurs love to learn new things - a new craft or technique, business strategies, marketing tricks, you name it and we like to learn about it! A great way for us to learn new skills is by taking an e-course. We can fit it into our crazy schedules and work through the class at our own pace - a definite bonus during the holiday season when things get really busy! Here is a roundup of e-courses created just for creative small business owners:

Dream Job : this is a great course that I took myself! Elsie and Emma tell there own dream job stories and give a lot of practical advice for running a thriving small business.

Indie Business : an interactive class for those building online and local businesses. Previous courses have included printable workbooks and live Q & A sessions. You can sign up for the next e-course on the website.

Handmade Horizons : an eight week e-course that includes videos, worksheets, and group coaching calls. This course is geared towards new business owners looking to take their business to the next level.

Handmadeology : this site has quite a few free e-courses on different topics related to selling on Etsy.

Blogging Adventure : a free e-course about blogging designed for crafters.
