Take Your Business To The Next Level {Giveaway Too}

I have a heart for women.

I am constantly amazed at the depth, quality, beauty, talent and strength of women.

I had promised myself when I first started my business that if I ever figured this whole thing out (and I am still learning) that I would share how I did it.

Along the way I have always tried to answer emails, encourage and support other small business owners (and dreamers).

I had questions at the beginning and I wish I had had a person to turn to.

I didn’t have a mentor and I could have really used one.

Not because I wanted to do what they were doing…because I wanted the knowledge and support to follow MY gifts.

I wanted to create a community of women that I can share my heart and journey with and then in turn they will encourage and support one another.

I am so excited to tell you that I have taken all of the best parts of the original Building a Creatively Made Business and have made it even better!

This time around I have asked my good friends (and business owners) Marian Parsons and Jennifer Rizzo to join me.

Building a Creatively Made Business 2.0 is full of our experiences in building successful businesses.



Are you a dreamer?

Do you have ideas, dreams and a beautiful product to go with it?

Have you been putting off starting your own business?

Do you feel stuck in the online business you have already created?

Do you just need someone to take your hand and walk you through the process?

It is time to take yourself and your dreams seriously.

Let’s start at the beginning.

Join us for a three week journey in building a “Creatively Made Business 2.0”.

SOME of the topics we will cover …..

Setting up your business


Social networking

Promoting your business

Pricing and staying competitive

Photographing your product

Setting yourself apart

Growing your brand

Markets and shows




Reproducing your work

Keeping the books.

We will talk honestly about what worked and what didn’t.

We will talk about growing pains and when you will know it is time to expand.

We will talk about all the things we wish someone had told us before we started our businesses.

Each week you will hear from other guest business owners and they will share what they wish they would have known and give you their best piece of advice.

You will have access to the jeanneoliver.ning.com community and Facebook group so you can connect with other business owners (or dreamers) in the class.

Each of the three weeks we will have a live chat where you can ask questions.

You will have printable PDFs each week that will help you brainstorm, take notes and see your business with clarity.

All sessions are pre-recorded and available as videos for you to watch at your convenience. You will learn at your own pace and around your own schedule.

Over 75 videos about how to grow your business and/or how to begin.

Growth, dreams and possibilities are right around the corner.

  6. Leslie McNeil

    after 28 years in govt, with 30 years for full retirement in 28 months! yippee… skippee! and with that date in mind, i am so longing to know more and wondering… whether… I can make it in a business of my own… so thank you for the opportunity for some insight, jeanne!

  7. Renee Ortiz

    This seems to be the perfect time for a refresher course for me. After taking your first creatively made business course and putting much of it in practice, circling back and refocusing would be ideal.

  8. Annette Tyrrell (tunafeathers)

    So… I have been following Miss Mustard Seed since before she began using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, I have been following Jeanne Oliver since “A bushel and a peck”. Back in those days I ran an online business selling vintage and collectibles as well as painted furniture and home decor.
    Today, I am an artisan for a decorative surface design company but the desire to go out on my own has been getting stronger and stronger the past few years. However, I feel stuck because I need to maintain my income while I transition AND I have too many ideas and I am afraid some of them are stale.
    I need help! HA!
    Thanks for gathering together to share your expertise, and I look forward to this class…–

  9. Tarrah Miller

  16. Donna

    I could really use some major help in setting up my own business – what a godsend you are!

  17. Jennifer Snellings

    I’m so excited about this!! The first course was AMAZING and I’m really looking forward to reviewing, learning more and growing my business in new and bigger ways! I especially need help with organizing my record keeping and any tax tips would be so very helpful as well! Yay, Jeanne!! Thanks so much for creating BACMB 2.0!!! 🙂

  24. Kathy

    I am in the process of selling my wedding decor business and think I might have a buyer. I am looking to start a new creative business but feel overwhelmed by all the people who are doing the very same thing and want to learn to set myself apart.

    1. susan

  28. ursula wollenberg

    I have been on this course for the last year. Coasting along and ready for the next level. It would be a real treat to win this package and learn from someone whom I admire. Pinned and blogged it!

  29. Sherri

    I have a business idea that I have discussed with several people. It is a monthly sale of artisans’ wares in our area. No products bought at market for resale unless they are embellished or changed into something more personal from each artisan. I know this will work! I would love to attend something like this. My area of the country is growing and it would support such a venture. I just don’t know how to get started. So taking this course would be a huge benefit.

  30. Robin~AllThingsHeartandHome

    There are so many balls to juggle when starting a business…I’d love to learn from all of you… thank you for offering this.

  31. Jo Ann

    Thats for the chance to win! I’d like to learn how to put all the “parts” together to make a business work.

  32. Anne

    It’s hard to just pin point one question because I have many.I took the first course 2 times because I really enjoyed it.I would love to know how to really keep good inventory.It’s so hard when you sell vintage items like I do.

  33. Jennifer W - Impromptu Millinery

    I took Jeanne’s first Creatively Made Business course and was deeply inspired by it. The course material was extensive, spot on, the videos fascinating (GRIPPING at times) and well organized – all pertinent for my small business. I was able to implement many of Jeanne’s suggestions and simply felt more easeful in my business approach because of what I was able to learn. It gave me the confidence to do shows and teach, be more experimental in the products I offered. Jeanne is a wonderful business mentor and cheerleader for us all. She will hold your hand. She’ll keep you interested and itchy to either start your own business or bring more light, space, and focus to your existing one.

    I am registered for the new CMB 2.0, I wouldn’t miss it for the world. The first course was fantastically good and I know that the next will be even better! The over-arching quality of any of Jeanne’s courses is her generosity of spirit and her love for opening up the heart of things that we often struggle with. How great to also have Jen and Marian to enrich and broaden the scope. I can hardly wait! Thank you, Jeanne, Jen and Marian.

  34. Melissa

    I cannot wait for this course!:) Creatively Made Business was incredible and helped me take the risk of beginning my own business. There is so much to learn. I would love to learn more about long lasting networking and also various avenues to get work out there… online and offline opportunities. Thanks so much for putting this together!:) I can’t wait!

  35. Sara Smeby

    I’m looking forward to taking this class because I feel like I’ve got a ton of ideas and energy, but no useful plan in place to funnel them into something productive. The organizational and business side of this is paralyzing! 🙂 I will IG and Pin straight away. 🙂 Warmly, Sara

  36. Stephanie Chavez

    I would love to learn that the life I have mapped in my head was meant to be. I am an extremely hard-working analyst by day and relinquisher of the hard rules by night, and the sheer juxtaposition alone makes both aspects of concrete and creative thinking. I cannot think of one without the other. I hope to harness both sides toward success. Unbelievable success. I am on the cusp of reaching toward this dream-map and have the first steps just begun, but seriously need the guided experience of others. It must be you. I can’t wait to begin…

  37. Amber

    I am about to start something and I’m pretty scared. I need the confidence I know this course will give.

  38. Amber

    Oh, and I shared it on Instagram. I can’t paste the link but my IG is @amberbravely and I tagged it #buildingacreativelymadebusiness 🙂

  39. Maria

    What I would love to learn is how do I go forward when I truly have more than time can manage already? Is there really a way to do that or does it mean that now is not the time?

  40. Kelley Fewer

    I am so ready for this!! I want to start my own business, but need some guidance…this is it!!

    Shine on!

  41. Diane Johnson

    I would love this, I have worked for someone else my whole life, I want to retire and pursue all kinds of art. I would love my own shop but am too afraid to go out on that limb. I do have 2 etsy shops but they could do better. I love that some very successful people want to reach out to others.
    Thank you

  42. Lynn Arnett

    This is perfect timing. I’m just in the beginning stages of my business. I don’t like to start something without feeling like I have crossed all my T’s and dotted all my i’s and am well prepared. Thank you all for sharing and helping me to do just that.

  43. Laura Snow

    This is exactly what I have been looking for, as I have been working with a friend on developing a business and we are so out of our depth! This just gets me more excited about doing it and learning how to do it 🙂

  44. Laura Snow

    I just shared this on my Facebook page. Am so needing this and looking forward to it!!!

  45. Angie H.

    I’d love to find some balance with keeping it all straight. The paperwork, taxes, receipts. I know there is no magic button I can push, but some real life help in this area would be great. I have been faltering in the motivation department. I worked so hard for about three years and saw some rewards, but reevaluated their worth. I think a chat would absolutely help me and give me the pointers I need and help I so desperately want.

  46. scrappybags

    Would love to win this package! I have been selling on-line for almost two years now and also have a “shop” in a local vintage market setting. I would like to move my biz forward, but definitely in need of some pointers! Looking forward to your class. Signing up right now!

  47. basketmaste

    I signed up for your course right away and am very excited. I create digitized embroidery designs and I hope to learn a bit about running an e-commerce site as well as how to shine above my competition.
