- Planning for Your Creative Business with Janet from Lazy Owl – Part 2
Welcome back – here’s the second half of Janet’s post about creating a fun business plan tailored for your business.
When I re-vamped my blog Lazy Owl as a business resource, one of the first business topics I started blogging about was the challenge of creating a plan for growing a successful creative small biz. My experiences as a creative business owner had encouraged me to come up with my own process for formulating a business plan. I call the end result a “business plan”, but it’s really so much more than that. It’s also part marketing plan, customer analysis, mission statement, business vision, competitor analysis, and just an all around source of inspiration.
This topic generated so many hits and so much interest on my blog that I eventually decided to combine the articles with a series of related printables and worksheets into one simple e-course bundle, called Crafting a Business 101: The Creative Business Plan. This e-book features over 50 pages of content and printables to help you with every step of fleshing out a motivating, functional, and well-researched road map for your creative business.
Crafting a Business 101: The Creative Business Plan is not just an e-book to read; it encourages you to actually do stuff (and as artists, we usually enjoy the doing more than the reading!). You will actually create your business plan as you go through the course. By the time you’re finished, you’ll be left with a truly helpful set of documents that will guide you towards financial success and serve as an inspirational resource throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
The e-course is currently available for download here, and all Stitching Rules readers can use the exclusive coupon code “STITCHINGRULES” for 15% off their download!

Debra – Thanks Janet for inspiring us all to get cracking on our business plans. I’ll keep you posted with my progress through the ebook soon.
