Isn't it everyone's dream to not have to go to work every day, to have a job you really love. After all - if you love working at something, then it just doesn't feel like work after all, right?
So - how about crafting? You have crafts you love to do, but how do
you make any money from them? Where do you try to sell? How do you
find customers? What is the best product to sell?
These are all questions that you must find the answers to before you start crafting for profit, or you may end up losing money, or owning a huge selection of multi-colored toilet roll covers that nobody wants.
You might find in many cases that women will go for jewellery, bags, hats, scarves and gifts more often than anything. Those little treats we all need now and again.

Food for thought. Now, make yourself a cuppa, pick up that crochet hook and just start creating. On the other hand after reading this, a notepad and pen may be closer to what you need. I can hear the cogs whirring now.
