The Toolbox

Business guides for craft businesses

The Toolbox is made up of a range of downloadable guides.  Each guide is a short PDF workbook of around 4-6 pages, which contains practical advice and exercises that will hone your business skills. The best bit is that you can start work right now.

The guides, priced at £10 each, are perfect if you are already up and running but are feeling a bit overwhelmed and want to make quick, tangible improvements one step at a time.  The guides cover the most common problems within craft businesses, and new titles will be added over time.

For example:

“‘I don’t get the finance stuff!’ is a really useful tool. It gets you straight to the nitty gritty and demystifies the scary world of finance. I was able to work through the guide with ease. I now have the action plan on my wall and the dates in my diary!” Michelle, Designer/Maker

How does it work?

1. Download your guide

To get started, choose your title from the list below, and click the button.  You will be directed to a page where you can make a payment by Paypal, credit or debit card.  Once your payment has been confirmed by paypal, click on the link that says “return to clare@createacraftbusiness.com and you will be taken to a page where you can download the document via a link.

2. Pencil at the ready

I recommend you print the document out, and set aside a quiet hour or so to work through it.  Scribble, make notes, get stuck in. It is your document, there are no wrong answers.

3. Take action

All the guides include an action plan for you to complete.  Stick this somewhere visible, and make a commitment to act on it.

4. Get back-up

Hopefully the guide has left you feeling inspired and motivated. The changes you are making may raise more questions, so if you feel like you would like to take the subject further, you can book a Phone Clinic: a 30 minute phone call with me, to chat through the subject.  See below for more information.

“You’ve done it again!  Another amazingly helpful download!” Liz, Craft Supplier & Tutor

The Phone Clinic costs $35 for a 30 minute call, and is only available if you have downloaded and worked through a guide. It’s a chance to talk through your ideas, and get answers to your queries or concerns.

To book a clinic, click on the button below.  You will be directed to a page where you can make a payment, and let me know your preferred time for the call.  Calls can take place in the daytime or evening, Monday to Friday.
