Applying her trademark “you-can-do-it” coaching style to the nuts and bolts of business planning, Kari Chapin covers all of the issues involved in turning a creative hobby into a successful business — from mapping out a business plan to expanding production and distribution, finding funding, and addressing legal matters.
