  • Thanks Barbara I also want some advice about growing my handmade items business. What can I do to get more exposure with little money? HELP? Please?

  • Social media can be a great way to cheaply get the word out about you/your business. I recommend Dan Schawbel's book Me 2.0 for great insights in creating your brand and marketing plan using social media.

    Barbara's book - Use What You've Got also has great insights. I found it very helpful as a budding entrepreneur when I read it in 2003.

    Good luck Linda!
