We love to create and make all the things, but we also know that running a craft business is so much more than the creative, fun things like actually creating your products.

We need skills to help us be more effective with the non-creative side of things. As the CPA, marketing guru, photographer, tech support, and social media manager (just to name a few) of your craft business, no wonder it can all feel so overwhelming sometimes!

Let me ask you this...

Often Overwhelmed

Do you ever feel like your business isn’t growing as you’d hoped? Yet, you are busy hustling every single day. (And often feel like don’t get anything done!)

Neverending To-Do List

Do you find your head spinning with so many ideas, but you never do anything with them because you’re unsure which one is the ‘right one’ to make the income you desire?

Looking to Stand-Out

Did you start selling your handmade items only to realize that making your business stand out is a lot harder than you thought? Especially when it seems like everyone is selling the same things.

No worries my creative friend. I have a solution for all this and more at the Craft Business Summit!

What I told you you could go from feeling overwhelmed to mastering the non-creative tasks of running your handmade creative business –And have more time to create and spend NOT working? Yes, please!

Every craft business needs a strong foundation to succeed.

This means we need to master the non-creative side of running a business. As a fellow creative, I’m here to tell you can do this, even if you are not a numbers-person! 

I’ve been there. I get it. To make it easy on our creative brains, I’ve broken the non-creative side of business tasks we all need to master into 3 categories.

Uplevel your skills so you can better manage and run the non-creative side of running your craft business.

Learn more marketing tips to make YOUR business stand out even if you aren’t a marketing guru.

Stop leaving money on the table. Find new ideas without creating more work.


At the Craft Business Summit, you’ll figure out where you should be focusing – for beginners and things to scale your craft business.

Meet Your Host

Hello, I'm Chelly.

The CEO behind We Can Make That!® and the Marketing Planner for Entrepreneurs™ and I’m excite to share this event with you.

I know what it’s like to sell the things you create. I started out doing craft fairs and consignment shops with my items too. This was a side hustle from my marketing studio (which I opened in 1997). Fast forward  and today I run a blog with an SVG membership for crafters and provide marketing support for business crafters. 

So, I too know first-hand how mastering the non-creative side of a business can make or break your dream.

Join me at the 3rd annual Craft Business Summit where we’ll dive into the 3 pillars of a business (Skills/Marketing/Revue Streams) and help you achieve your goal for each – whether you are new or experienced, we have training topics for you.
