When I first stumbled upon Linda Barutha’s business, I was really impressed.
Usually, I highlight hobby experts or creatives that are skilled in their craft. It is my hope that you read their stories and get inspired to either try the hobby for yourself or take it to the next level and profit from your passion.
However, I found Linda who makes her mission helping creatives get online.
You know there are only so many people you can reach if you take your products to a fair, craft show, etc.
You can reach the world if you move your business online. Pretty drastic difference in reach!
Read about Linda and get inspired.
What hobby are you good at?
I help creatives get their business online.
How long have you been doing it?
How did you get good at it?
Having to always be self-sufficient and create and manage my own websites. If I didn’t know something I researched until I got my answers.
What advice would you give to beginners? What shortcuts or secrets can you share?
Listening to everyone’s “free” advice online is great, but at some point you need to get quiet and listen to your own inner voice to make decisions.
Are you a member of any local or national organization/club related to your hobby? If yes, please share the name and benefits of belonging.
Not at this time. We moved last year to a completely different area of the state, so I haven’t had a chance to get involved yet. But I am participating in a local craft fair in a few weeks, and happy to expand and explore.
If you happen to make money from your interest, do you have a website, Etsy store, Facebook page, etc. that you have created and would like to share?
Any other information that you would like to share?
Thank you for the opportunity to share a little bit about what I do.
