How did I get started? Slowly and painfully is the answer to that!
My name is Julia and I wish I had had this resource when I first started.
However, all of that experience has inspired me to create the Play to Profit website to help people just like me all those years ago; inspired people who believe they can create unique pieces to sell and hopefully make a decent living. I have created templates for so much of what I learnt and tried to keep them simple.
This site is for people starting out on their journey or who have been on their way for some time but need a bit of a business make-over, or maybe you just want to understand how the creative entrepreneur business has grown over the last few years.
I have provided lots of free downloads, templates, links and posts. I've created a step by step beginners' course to get you on the road - creating, selling and, importantly, making a profit.
(A word of warning, if you're looking to make a quick buck, there are far better ways than this, but it's so worth it if you persevere!)
The beginners' course is for newbies to the creative entrepreneur world, or those looking to kick-start their business and learn about online store developments. At Play to Profit, I've ensured that it's value for money for you too - it will save you at least 12 months of mistakes, wasting precious time and money and it will get you motivated with a clear plan so you can get selling fast!
I also offer one to one business mentoring: Get up & running in 30 days! sessions if you don’t have the know-how (or inclination) to write a business strategy and marketing plan, or the time (who does these days?) to learn the do's and don'ts by trial and error. I can also help if you need to give your business a re-boot by working with you to review your working practices and see where you can fine tune, so you can achieve the creative business of your dreams. Check out the Coaching page for more information and get in touch!
I am so pleased you found this community and valuable resource tool. I wish you every success in your business. I would love to hear about your business and its progress, so let me know all about it (and you!) and it may get featured on our Home page!
