Links you might find important
This site has a lot of free training, but right now it is a little old (three years)
and had a lot of cool freebies. It is all about small business ideas
My original craft marketing website. A lot of very detailed content there.
This one has a free hosting loading speed test and if you are serious about your business you will get me to do that test for you.
Too many clowns recommending bad hosting, and doing with 100% believe in their ideas. Silly, silly people. Test it and have proof.
A ton of cool crafting videos here for a lot of fun stuff to watch.
This one has a few freebies and a decent amount of great advice for the woodworking side of home businesses
This one was supposed to be my baby, where I was going to add dozens of cool business ideas all the time. If you would like me to research a specific woodworking project or business idea, ask me, and I will do so and then feature it on that site.
