YES YOU CAN! You can successfully run your own craft or sewing business. To do so, however, you
must have a good understanding of the business world. Why do businesses succeed? Why do they fail?
The contents of this book are taken mainly from a document I originally wrote under "Spectrum Accounting", a consulting business specializing in small businesses.
I set up the accounting system, policies and procedures, and taught the business owners and managers how to successfully extract
accurate and timely financial information in order to make sound management decisions.
I hope to accomplish several things with this book. First, I hope to take the mystery out of
running a small business and show that contrary to what you have probably been told, YOU CAN DO IT!
By using this book as a guide, you will be able to set up an efficient business right from the start.
Don't be fooled by larger, fancy looking businesses. If you follow this book, you will be ahead
of a great number of them. From home businesses to fancy salons and retail stores, I have seen
the same errors. No one is above the mistakes I will teach you how to avoid in this book.
Be positive, stay focused, succeed!
