Post Two: Meetings with the Princes Trust

Business plan

Hey! So I have been having meetings with Liz at the Princes Trust in Nottingham to help with creating my business plan. I have been working on my plan for the past couple of months now and I have found it quite daunting doing it on my own. But! Now that I have Liz I can send my plan back and forth to her and, due to her expert knowledge of business plans, she has given me lots of tips on what to include.

I have almost finished now and I am just looking over my costing, budget and pricing of products. Hopefully my plan will be ready by the beginning of June so that I can present my plan to the Princes Trust Panel Members. Eeek! Once I have gone to “panel” I will then be presented with a Business Mentor who I can talk to about my plans, give me advice and expert ideas on what I can do to grow my business.

I am really looking forward to having a finished product line and starting to sell my work!

Post one: New website and social media


I have been working on my website for about a week now and it is slowly but surely coming together. I got a bit stuck trying to make my logo fit in the designated area and making it look sharp and neat like I wanted it to.

I have finally created one social media outlet for my business and that is in the form of an instagram account, I am slightly addicted I have to say. There are so many gorgeous crafters and makers and doers that I can hardly keep up. I am in awe of some of the artists, I keep comparing my work to theirs which I know I shouldn’t do but it is so easy to fall into that mindset. Anyway, I am super enjoying instagram at the minute so if you want to check me out on there then click here
