    Hi, l loved your presentation on creating a side hustle. I have a lovely product to sell but am an introvert so not good at making an online presence or networking, unfortunately. How do I promote my business when I’m rubbish at promoting myself?

    Hello, from Nova Scotia, Canada. Thank you, Emily. I’m looking forward to completing your help sheet, especially step two. I have so many craft interests & hobbies I don’t know which to do first – sewing, products using cricut maker, crochet, knitting, jewelry making, macrame, painting. I think I just listed these in the order of my interest. Therefore, I’m thinking of starting with sewing and cricut. Of course these need to be broken down into sewing clothing (pattern making), embroidery (learn artistic digitizer softward), bags, home decor, etc.). Cricut products using vinyl and cardstock.

    I’m retired from another career, and have resumed my artwork. I don’t want the pressure of full time work, especially since my precious grandsons are my priority. I don’t need to support myself with art. I have a perfunctory, noninteractive website, and have not tried to market my art, as word of mouth has kept me as busy as I have time for. However, I have one area that I think has potential for a wider audience. I’ve given watercolors of personal wedding bouquets as a gift to several brides, and it seems that this could fit the hand made market. In your opinion, should I just continue sharing on social media, or should I try something like Etsy? Thanks. I enjoyed your presentation.

    Sewing business specializing in home decor and wearable fashion accessories. I don’t have a website and prefer not to start one. How can I start the business without a website?

      Etsy, Makesy, and Shopify are all good outlets to start a business and some accounts come with websites
