Think, Make, Sell.
About This Show
Think, Make, Sell is all about turning your ideas into a business. A business that you can run on the side or full-time, from home or an office, alone or with partners — you decide. It doesn’t matter if you’re a woodworker, design wedding dresses, create gift cards, make kitchen knives, produce screencasts or have an idea for anything else that can be turned into a marketable product or service. Think, Make, Sell will help you go from idea to first sale.

It’s true: When you work from home, you really don’t have to wear pants.
You don’t need a blog: Set up a one-page website with a newsletter signup form and drive traffic through guest posting.
Raw visitor numbers to your website don’t mean much. What counts is engagement and interaction.
When you’re publishing more than one book in the same general topic area, be sure to link from each book to your other books on the last couple of pages.
If you want to make a living as an artist, you also have to be a business person.
Unless you’re the Queen of England, writing “we” on your website when you’re just one person is a bit douchey.
