I’ve been running The Yellow Birdhouse for about 4.5 years. I have sold my handmade creations either through consignment or wholesale during those 4.5 years in local brick and mortars. I’ve been selling on Etsy for almost 3 years and I’ve run a second Woocommerce shop for about 2 years. So I’ve got some experience under my belt for sure. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve made plenty of mistakes and I’m still learning. But I feel at this point in my journey I’ve got some wisdom to share. Today’s wisdom is all about the various resources and tools I use to run my creative business. These are tools I personally use every day and highly recommend. And many of them are free! This post will be kept up to date as I discover new share-worthy tools for creative shop owners to help you run the business you’ve always dreamt of!
