A Good Read

A couple of weeks ago, I came across this little jewel of a book! In the same vein as Victoria's The Business of Bliss, Country Living has published Crafting a Business - Making Money Doing What You Love by Kathie Fitzgerald. Full of eye candy and inspiration, it showcases several artists/entrepreneurs (many whom we know and love) and how they came to do what they do. I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of this stuff. I wish someone would publish a monthly magazine that simply focused on following your dreams, how to start a business, and give plenty of examples of women doing just that, with lots of colorful, dreamy photos of course. I love to see how people live, their studios and shops, what drives them, what they are passionate about, and of course, how it all manifests in the world. And it all begins with a tiny thought, just a spark of an idea. Isn't it awesome that we have the power to create! Happy 2008, everybody, with wishes that you will be empowered this year to think big and create what your heart desires.

Thank you for sharing the insight of this book, I must go get it soon. I can't get enough of this stuff either.
My new business focuses on branding your business, so I'm looking for books on that subject too so that I may give my customers all the important info they need to brand their business and get their names out there.
Love your blog, I found you over at Angelina's.
