Spring reading thing #8

The Seed Handbook - Lynne Franks

Lynne Franks uses the example of a garden to talk about the different aspects of a business. For example, you have to prepare the ground before you can plant your seeds.

It's all about the female way of doing business intuitively. Which can be new-agey. I tend to gloss over stuff I don't believe in and look for the nuggets. Which there is some of in every book.

I think I should have read this when I actually bought it (a good 2 - 3 years ago) so that it could benefit me more.

For those of us who have been going awhile, I don't think you'll get much out of this. Or maybe you will. I didn't.

But if you're thinking of starting your own business, this covers a lot and is a really good place to start.

If you'd like this book, leave a comment below and tell me. All I ask is that you pay your own postage or come get it from me (if you're in Jhb).

it will be a dream come true to start my own business!! How can I get out of my comfort zone? I love crafts - can I make money with crafts?

Oooh, you must check out Vicki is an amazing woman who started her own "crafty" business, but has set up a distributorship program so other crafters can also have their own company. It is an amazing program!

My biggest goal for this year is to start my own business. I just love a challenge and this is the big one for me.
