GROWING HANDMADE

EDUCATION – SUPPORT – COMMUNITY

FOR HANDMADE BUSINESS OWNERS

“I highly recommend the membership.

Jules the owner is very special, she has helped me get my handmade business off the ground, helped with anything that I didn’t understand, and is always an inbox away, she also gives you a kick up the bum when needed

Absolutely worth every penny , you won’t find a better membership, or a better owner.”

– Lydia, Owner of Pretty Little Creations

“I’ve been running my own business now for the last 3 years, and yet some of the struggles I experienced in year 1 I still haven’t overcome.

Not really knowing anyone else who runs a business like mine can be quite lonely, daunting and frustrating – nobody to share problems with, ask advice or just generally rant to about the perils of being self-employed.

Enter Jules and The Growing Handmade Membership.

Honestly the best money I’ve ever invested in my business.  Jules helps me see things in a way I’ve never looked at them before. The way she makes me evaluate my business, my routines, what works, what doesn’t work and what I need to do to reach my goals has been absolutely invaluable to me.

I’ve come on leaps and bounds since joining the membership and I can’t thank her enough for all the support and resources she provides.  Not only that, but the other members of the club are amazing too.   A community of people going through exactly the same things that I’m going through who can offer advice, constructive criticism, inspiration and a shoulder to cry on when needed.

For as long as Growing Handmade is open, there’ll be a seat at the table with my name on it.”

– Kimberley, Owner of Hiko Scented Wax

You spoke, I listened.

You said your biggest struggle was getting your handmade business seen on social media and getting more eyes on your business, whilst trying not to be too ‘salesy’.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the membership?

The membership is made up of 3 primary pieces.  Education, Community, and Visibility.

Education is offered in the form of both the resource library and group sessions.  With regular live video chats, printables, and mini-challenges, there is always something going on to get involved in.

Community is provided in the form of our safe place – the private Facebook group.  Here you can ask for advice, connect with like-minded business owners, receive additional support when needed, and just generally feel as if you are part of a warm and welcoming – drama-free – community.

Visibility is offered through social media shout-outs, a listing in the member’s directory here on the website, invitations to take part in events, the chance to feature in gift guides, and Meet the Maker opportunities.

 

Is it a guided membership or a self-paced one?

It’s a mix!

For those of us that are time-poor – the membership resources can be worked through at your own pace and fitted into your own schedule.

For those that like a bit of a nudge to keep motivated, the membership offers mini-challenges, accountability threads, planning and review sessions, and encouragement to keep on heading in the right direction with your business.

How often can we speak to the membership owner?

Every day!  Well, pretty much, health and family life-permitting.

I (Jules) am always around, and can often be found doing a spontaneous live video chat in the members’ group, and will be posting encouragement and checking in to see what everyone is up to.  The membership is super important to me – it’s my passion – so I’m actively involved every day and want to offer the best value possible to the members – even for such a small monthly fee!
