Not really very helpful for how to go about actually marketing and selling your crafts. Lots of ideas and success stories but all vague on how to actually start doing business.
Constantly suggest that you teach your craft but not much detail on how to do that either.
Might be a great inspirational book for helping to get you motivated but you are going to need to read other books and probably take some classes to actually do it.
This book is not the bible of how to turn your craft into a business or career that the author suggests that it is.
