If you're a closet crafter or someone who had a passion for making things, check out the new book Craft, Inc.: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business by Meg Mateo Ilasco. The book fills the creative void among the stacks of business books as it targets the artist/crafter/designer who aspires to turn their passion into a business. The book is a great introduction to the world of business for those who are in the process of beginning or looking to begin a business selling your wares. Meg interviews various designers like Lotta Jansdotter, Variegated, Jonathan Adler, and more for peaks into their insight and personal experience. The easy-to-read book (with its super cute design) clearly explains the steps needed for developing products and naming the company to writing a business plan, applying for licenses, and paying taxes. Craft, Inc. is a completely informative and inspiring read. Congrats Meg!
