I’m always an avid proponent of doing some research before you jump into any big venture. Especially when it comes to starting your own business or making any big change in your life – like quitting your job and focusing on the small business that you’ve started. Besides the general Google searches and reading every article you can on the topic, my favorite thing to do is talking to or reading interviews with designers and online shop owners because those are the people that are doing it right now and have been doing. And there is nothing better that learning from direct experience. When learning from sellers that are directly doing it at that moment, the mistakes they’ve learned from and the experiences they’ve gained are still fresh and even still being created. That’s why I adore this video of a creative business Q&A by April from The Flourishing Abode. It’s sweet, simple, and honest so even though she doesn’t offer a mountain of technical information, she shares what knowledge she’s gained from her experiences and tries to share that with all of us. And there’s a bonus packaging demonstration at the end! Watch it and let us know what you thought!
