Kathy Cano-Murillo (a.k.a. Craft Chica) to host the second CREATIVE CONNECTION Etsy Virtual Lab this Thursday, July 15 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
Crafting can be big business, but coming up with a unique product and/or technique is only part of the process. To grow your business you need to create a brand and develop new avenues for growth, like publishing a book, syndicating your blog, hosting workshops, producing instructional DVDs, selling retail and more. Kathy Cano-Murillo (a.k.a. CraftyChica) knows all about creating a brand and growing a business. Join this talented writer, artist, crafter, entrepreneur and creator of the extensive CraftyChica product line (www.craftychica.com) as she shares her personal experiences and offers first-hand advice on creating a successful brand. To attend this live, interactive workshop in Etsy's Virtual Labs, all you'll need is a free Etsy account (sign up here). Be sure to come by the Virtual Labs a few minutes early as there are limited spots available!
You can meet Kathy Cano-Murillo in person in Minneapolis, MN, on Friday, September 17th, as she participates in a panel discussion with other extraordinary women at THE CREATIVE CONNECTION Event's "Women Entrepreneurs" luncheon.
