IS THIS COURSE FOR ME?

Yes, if:

  • you want a business but don't know where to start
  • you are worried you might miss out something important
  • you want to leave a job you hate
  • you want a 2nd income or "side hustle"
  • you've been made redundant and want to try something different
  • you want to work from home, spend more time with family, or have more flexible working hours
  • you've already started but feel overwhelmed
  • you need to learn aroud existing commitments
  • you haven't got a clue about "businessy" stuff and you're hopeless at numbers

The good news is that you can start your business within weeks...while still keeping your day job...until you are ready to wave it goodbye, of course!

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

During the 15-step programme you will work through the guidance to get you ready to sell within days. It's highly structured with each module building on the preceding one (so you don't have to go back and redo anything!) and will ensure you have strong foundations in place for a successful business.

After completing this programme you will understand:

  • why finding your passion is so important
  • how to set business goals and outline your strategy
  • what you REALLY want from a business by seeing into the future
  • what and where to sell
  • who is your ideal customer and where to find them
  • how to create a brand that sells - name, logos, design, colours and more
  • which are the best online selling platform for you
  • why email marketing is so important!
  • how to align your brand identity with your social media presence
  • how to prepare your products for sale - writing engaging descriptions and taking eye-catching photos that sell your products
  • how to price your products
  • cost control, profit planning and the importance of tracking expenses
  • the practicalities of running a small business - tax, insurance, legal, copyright
  • how to launch and get those sales!


The course is full of links to FREE resources to help you sell your handmade crafts and artwork without spending a fortune to get started.

There are money saving tips throughout and some steps which will save you a lot of time on research. We are 100% confident that this course will have paid for itself many times over by the time you are finished.

The first step on the path to success is deciding to go for it!

It's all a bit scary!

It's not easy starting a new venture and this is a big investment in you and your future. We all feel the same way when starting out (all of the LYCB experts are all successful small business owners).

It's normal if you:

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

We are 100% confident that this course will set you up for success. By following the programme and putting in the work we know your business will take off and you will reap the rewards. How do we know? Because we've already seen it happen.

Our previous course participants are already launching new brands and selling to their dream clients. Why shouldn't you be next?


"All of these worries applied to me when I started my jewellery business. I really wish I had access to this programme to point me in the right direction when I started out!! It would have taken some of the worry out of starting out on my own. And honestly. if this course had been around I would have spent the money on it because it would have saved me weeks of work (and worry) and got me selling a lot faster!"

Lesley Elder, Owner of Seahorse and LYCB Founder

Charmaine, Artist/Potter, Germany


"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".






If you're worried about a large, upfront investment in this programme don't let the cost put you off. We have put different payment plan options in place to make it more accessible.


And don't forget, training course expenses are tax deductible and you may also be able to recover the sales tax - just ask your accountant!

Jacqueline, Jewellery Designer, Scotland


"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."

"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 LYCB helped me to see how I could turn it into a business.

There is lots of help available in the group and it's backed by Lesley´s experience and that of the other experts. I can´t recommend it highly enough for anyone starting out, or even just thinking of starting out.
