We're ready for Paper by JLee: Step 6! In the previous post (step five) we looked at the various ways I market and grow Paper by JLee. In this post I'll talk about the people who supported both me and the business as I launched Paper by JLee: family, friends and fellow small business owners.
Today we have a special guest post from my financial planner, Julie Ford, the founder of Ford Financial Solutions, LLC. Julie will take us step-by-step through some of the financial issues related to starting your own Etsy shop. Next week, I'll build on Julie's advice and walk you through exactly what it cost to start Paper by JLee.
Step two in the Paper by JLee process: At this point in the start up process I (with my mom and sister) had an idea and general concept about what I wanted to sell. The next step was figuring out what that looked like in terms of design. As I mentioned in my step one post, I already had a few designs from past projects that I could edit and use as stationery.
