Have you ever been curious about how much other people make from their jobs?
I know I have, and the first place I look at is GlassDoor.com where employees of specific companies share reviews for the businesses they work for.
But more interestingly, they also share their annual income.
This is great data for job seekers and college students picking a major.
Unfortunately, this kind of data for handmade businesses is not readily available for public viewing.
This is one of the few reasons why I do an annual income report for my handmade business every year.
One, to educate other creatives who are interested in taking their business to a more serious level.
Two, I believe in transparency and that you should follow a mentor or teacher that not only talks the talk, but walks the walk.
Three, because this is a good excuse for me to do a year review and analyze what went wrong or right so I can make plans for the new year.
Are you ready to take a peek behind my business?
