I’ve Been Named Handmade Business Expert for Small Business Trends!


I am pleased to announce that I have been named the Handmade Business Expert for the Small Business Trends, an award-winning online publication for small business owners, entrepreneurs and the people who interact with them.


Small Business Trends content is syndicated through ACI Information Group (formerly Newstex) and other sites around the Web. This trusted publication currently reaches over 6,000,000 readers annually, via direct visits, RSS feeds (120,000+ subscribers), newsletters and social feeds (200,000+), and syndication.

My first article at Small Business Trends was published in 2011. Since then, I have authored a few more articles, including the ever popular 10 Essentials For Handmade Business Success.

My first article as the Small Business Trends Handmade Business Expert is Portrait of the Handmade Business Owner, and provides a high level overview the handmade industry. It also invites you to share what types of articles, tips, and analysis you would like to see in future Handmade Business columns.

Along with Anita Campbell, the CEO and Publisher of Small Business Trends, I am thrilled that the new Handmade Business column will shine a well-deserved spotlight on the Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs who are changing the world with amazing products, dedication to customer service, and a passion for living life on their own terms.
