Hi everyone! I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a class called “Know the Cost of Your Craft” at Camp Thundercraft April 13th – 15th, 2018 (Registration deadline is March 31st).

Goal: To become a more effective small business owner by gaining a deeper understanding of your financial performance and how to improve your bottom line.

You will:

•  Learn how to use an Excel template to figure out the true cost of your product.
•  Use better information to calculate what the wholesale and retail prices should be.
•  Build an better understanding of where your business is currently at financially.
•  Make informed decisions about the direction to take your business.

My students will also receive a handmade, organic cotton pencil case, filled with goodies and resources for you to take away, while supplies last!

Camp Thundercraft is a weekend retreat in Vashon, WA brought to you by Urban Craft Uprising. This all inclusive goal-oriented getaway is built around educational sessions, panel and roundtable discussions, self-reflection, networking, and connecting. This is going to be a great event with a lot of talented people in one place, hope to see you there!
