The six core business foundations that Etsy sellers need to master on top of their craft are bookkeeping, taxes, finances, legal topics, operations, and marketing.

Etsy-preneurship – Chapter One – Etsy Business Foundation is the world’s handmade online marketplace where people can both buy and sell handmade, vintage, and supplies by discovering creations from individuals around the world.  Entrepreneurship is the knowledge, skills, and tools need to start and run a business.  Etsy + Entrepreneurship = Etsy-preneurship.  I believe that everyone can and should start and run a small business at some part of their life.  Etsy makes the barriers to starting your own business very low.  Since 2007, I have helped thousands of Etsy sellers start, strengthen, and grow their business on Etsy.  Through these interactions, I have developed a comprehensive business foundation for Etsy sellers to use to run their Etsy businesses.

The six core business foundations that Etsy sellers need to master on top of their craft are bookkeeping, taxes, finances, legal topics, operations, and marketing.  The Handmade business plan is the best way to start building a business.  The Etsy community provides a way to build upon the foundation and practicing business self-development strengthens the foundation.
