I started beading as therapy for PTSD and it became a hobby, but an expensive one, I so appreciate the wonderful information, thank you

One of the best things about making sure you build in a markup on your retail price is that you can then use that margin to offer discounts. Buyers LOVE a sale!

I’m excited to see more in this series. Can you please touch on what constitutes a hobby vs a business? And also how you move from a hobby to a business. Thanks so much!

Julie,
This was very helpful and I am glad you are doing this series. What you covered I had learned over time.
Can you cover how you keep track of your supplies and cost. I currently do a spread sheet, listing purchase name of item, cost and then break it down to per bead etc. Currently I am just overwhelmed with tracking, creating and making labels for item. I have not even gone into packaging. Currently I have only sold directly to a small group of people so no tax has been included. I want a hobby but also make some money to offset what I have spent.
Also, how do you track your product image with description and cost? Can you cover this.
Thank you.

Thank you so much for all the great information. I have found it’s very easy to quickly get overwhelmed with all that goes along with starting a business of selling your handmade item! I am looking forward to you next video!

What a wonderful idea! Very useful information. Am excited for the next ones, I especially struggle with photographing, so will be watching for that one. Do you have dates for all the other videos?
Thanks for doing these!

I aim to sell my earrings at 2x my cost as well, taking in mind all my costs (including packaging and shipping), which I pay for. I do not charge for labor at this point, so my items are all fairly inexpensive considering. Because of this, I still consider my jewelry sales as more of a hobby than a business. My problem areas are photographing and listing the item. I have far more items made than I have placed on eBay where I list and sell all my jewelry. I chose eBay because they don’t charge a listing fee, unless you’ve created an eBay store. So, you don’t pay anything unless the item sells. I figure this is best for a hobby. I have done all the math for each item I sell as well as for some I’m intending to sell but haven’t got them listed, yet. This video was very helpful, and I like all of Julie’s recommendations, especially if you want to sell your jewelry as a business.
