Thank you, thank you, for your overwhelming support of my book. I’m humbled by the attention and response.
I’ve already seen some very complimentary book reviews popping up in blogland like here, here, here and here… even spotted a couple on Facebook too.
To top it off, I found out last night that Australia’s finest textile magazine, (in my humble opinion), are reviewing it in an upcoming issue (shhh… I think I am suppose to keep that a secret, but I’m nearly peeing my pants with excitement). . . so don’t be telling anyone.
Along with a bevy of congratulatory and supportive emails yesterday I also had some questions posed. . . most were similar, so I thought I’d address a couple here today.
Q: I’m not a mum but I’d like to start a small business, is this book for me?
A: Yes, most definitely. The book is generalised in all areas of constructing a business, but also addresses the role of mums/moms taking the next step with their creativity.
There were quite a few questions with a similar theme, but same answer applies.
Q: I’ve already established and online business, but after an initial good response it has now become stagnant. I’m not sure what to do next to improve/boost sales or how to market it. Is this in your book?
Q: I have lots of likers on my Facebook business page, but I’m not getting many orders. Do you address this?
A: Yes I do. The Creative Mumpreneur is broken up in to 6 parts:
- Taking the plunge – business preparation
- Business Basics – everything from registering a business and legal requirements to time management and organising your workspace.
- Brand, Logo & Product – must knows about your product and branding
- A happy Mumpreneur.
I think The Creative Mumpreneur just about covers everything from start to finish of creating a successful small or micro business. . . whether you are a mum or not!
I’m pleased to announce the winner of the giveaway is Carol E in AZ
