BUSINESS BUILDER PROGRAMME

Congratulations on taking the first step to start your own craft business! 

We are so excited that you are here.

Scroll down to find out more about our Business Builder programme... 


The Business Builder programme starts at the beginning of each quarter and runs for 12 weeks with weekly live, interactive video calls, and includes 12 months membership of our VIP Facebook group.

The course is perfect for those who have a product to sell but need flexibility to develop their business around existing work or family commitments.

It's also great for those who are just starting out as it gives them time to hone their craft while learning the business basics.


This course is for you if:

  • you're feeling a little bit overwhelmed
  • you don't know where to start selling
  • you think you have a good product but it's not selling
  • you have no idea what to charge for your product
  • you're worried you're going to forget something


"All of these things applied to me when. I really wish I had had this programme to point me in the right direction when I started out!!

Lesley Elder, Owner LYCB


"The online course was very informative and well thought out. I went into it with no real expectations as my painting was just a hobby, but she helped me to see how I could turn it into a business. There is lots of help available in the group and it is backed by Lesley´s experience and that of the other experts that she brought in. I can´t recommend it highly enough for anyone starting out, or even just think of starting out. 

Lorraine, Artist, Spain

This programme is designed for anyone who wants to start a craft business whether they already have a "product" that they want to sell or not.

Using the planner helps you to keep all of your ideas, goals and to-do lists in one place.

Fill in the planner on your tablet with a stylus pen, use the divider tabs to navigate between sections, easily duplicate pages, make changes and type in text.

Client Testimonial


"I love Lesley´s no nonsense, helpful and insightful approach along with extremely practical advice to launch a craft business inside of only a few days. You genuinely cannot go wrong using her method.


She´s been there and done it, unlike a lot of other people out there in the market.


So if you´re thinking about starting your own business, get her advice first before you make the mistakes that many of us do when starting out and avoid failing".


Charmaine, Artist/Potter, Germany

Client Testimonial


"As a complete newbie to this due to finishing a career in uniform, I knew absolutely nothing about starting up a business and what it entails. Although I am dipping my toes in the water I found this course full of information and a well thought out planner. Lesley was excellent at cascading her information and encouraging everyone to join in. All the ladies were helpful and encouraging to each other especially myself. Well worth doing this course. It has certainly made me think outside the box and has boosted my confidence as I had precious little left. Thank you Lesley and all of the other participants."


Jacqueline, Jewellery Designer, Scotland
