Introducing: where women create/BUSINESS Magazine!

Ki is excited to share the latest magazine publication from her friend, Jo Packham: "where women create BUSINESS"!
(and they put up a rockin' post about Flea Market Style Weddings this morning, too! You can read it here!)
Jo has spent 30 years in the handmade publishing market, producing the Where Women Create: Book of Organization and running her company, WWC Press. She partners with Stampington & Company to produce the bestselling mags Where Women Create, Where Women Cook, and now, where women create BUSINESS
(There's a giveaway coming, too! Details at the end of this post!)
The new mag launched this month, giving an in-depth look at the professional lives of small but influential artisan/entrpreneurs. The magazine provides tangible advice that readers and professional-minded women can apply to their own businesses, whether they are just starting out or are seasoned hands. Among the useful advice: everything from how to gain targeted exposure through product placement to how to hire an employee, how to apply for an SBA loan or find the perfect PR agent.
wwcBusiness aims to help small businesswomen work smarter and provide them the resources and community needed to manage and grow their "American Dream."
Who doesn't need that?!
You can enter to win a 1-year subscription to each of the Where Women family of magazines here!
That's Where Women Cook, Where Women Create and where women create BUSINESS (the small letters help put the emphasis on BUSINESS, Jo says!)
To enter, just leave a comment about one of your creative or business goals on this post. We'll chose a winner by random number generator after 5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19.
Don't forget to leave a valid email address so we can contact you if you are selected!
Happy reading, flea marketing AND creating!

Kim

My dream is open a childrens art studio! I want a safe, happy, vibrant space in which children can learn about themselves and the world around them through art.

This sounds like a magazine I "NEED". I've had to close on of my locations but am trying to redirect and refocus on the remaining location as well as seeking new directions to focus on.

My goal for this year is to get the flea market my sweet friend and I are starting successfully off the ground - we'd love for you to take a peek at fleattitude.blogspot.com! We both love junking and flea markets. . . Cathie, mjscox@burgoyne.com

My goal is to really find my "voice" this year. To truly put out for display the stuff that shows me. Quirky warts and all. To search out the best junk I can find and help people discover new ways to incorporate vintage pieces into their modern lives.

colleen said...

My husband and I opened a vintage home goods shop in March 2012. Our goals this year are to be more organized with our paperwork/taxes and to find more sources for buying good junk!

Thanks for sharing the news!

My goal this year is to streamline our business into one successful brand rather than have what feels like different companies for each avenue we work with (online, shows, store, ect)

Magazine looks like it will be helpful for small business!!

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

My goal for this year is to open an Etsy business or my own website selling my photographs on personalized greeting cards. I want to generate enough income that I don't have to pick up extra shifts at my current daytime job :) Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

My goal is to start up an etsy site

Sandra said...

My sister and I are looking to expand our imprint in the junking world through our co-venture Sister Shic. We have sold at various flea markets for years but this past October we hosted our first annual junking/vintage sale and it was a huge success with over 400 shoppers. We look forward to our next sale and to growing the market in our area.

The Sunshine Grove said...

Take our creations to more craft shows! The love of wood seems to be increasing, so we have a great medium to work with. We just need to get it out there for all to see beyond our Etsy shop.

camp studios said...

My goal is to make money on the art I create. I have a tiny business, I have an etsy site, I need marketing skills and courage. C O U R A G E.....I think that will have to be my new word for the year

Jeni said...

A creative business goal, eh? My business goals this year are to open an Etsy store, add to what I sell on eBay, start a blog, and use Pinterest as a selling tool. I'm not sure how "creative" those are but they are all pretty much out of my comfort zone so creative for me anyway~LOL!

So looking forward to your Weddings magazine. We did a wedding on the cheap two weeks ago and it turned out very lovely. I really enjoyed putting it all together for my daughter and found a possible niche for myself!

Linda M. Foskey said...

Maybe a Magazine like this will give me the incentive I need to pull the old trunks and furniture out of the storage house and give a little TLC to them and show the world just how creative I really can be.

I recently opened a shop a Etsy.com, and would like to start selling
repurposed vintage items I've made, and need some encouraging advice.
What a great giveaway!

Thanks Melissa

My goal is to actually move from a virtual store front to a mortar and stone building, i.e., my home business! It is very expensive just to afford the survey for our county but I know it is possible! ~Elizabeth

My list of goals this year is long, but among the top ones is to dive into social media, particularly Pinterest and Facebook, to build my two jewelry shops. Also to re-brand one of my shops to focus on inspirational jewelry and to grow my online sales from both shops significantly. I could really use wwcBUSINESS!
