About the Beader

Megan PetersenHi friends! I’m Megan.

I’m the “beader” here behind the awesome trainings and tutorials at BeadingForBusiness.com.

I started Beading for Business because I’ve got a bit of a split personality.

(Which is lucky for you!)

There are two sides to my creative process.

On the one side, I love coming up with and making handmade goodies to delight and inspire my customers. For me, creating handmade products is truly an addiction. It’s one I’ve been hooked on ever since I was a little girl, and I’ve never really tried to escape it.

The other side of my creative process, however, is the marketing side.

I stated selling my handmade jewelry on Etsy and at markets in 2010, and then upgraded to my own web store a couple of years later. Since then, I’ve endured a never ending thirst for learning about new business planning strategies and online marketing techniques.

I fell in love with blogging, social media, and online networking. I am always learning something new, and love taking my personal experiences and knowledge and passing them onto you.

I’m always working on something new and awesome to help you give your own handmade business a boost in the online marketplace.

If you’re looking to grow your handmade business into the thriving success you know it has the potential for, you’ve come to the right place.

  1. I read your comments about being a beader/business and I had to chuckle a bit. All you say is true, however, it is YOUR choice to do these things. I don’t want to go through all the online hassles. I will do my work and try to connect with a business here in town that is an artist’s coop. I need to build my inventory first before I actually rent space. But I found a new little shop with low rental space, so I can start there before I move up. See if I get a following.
    My other love is theater and I’d really like to be beading costumes, but that’s a whole other nut. I absolutely LOVE you “negative space” pieces, especially the rectangular one.
    Thanks for you remarks & ideas. Awhile ago I wrote a piece for a friend who was going to use it in a magazine. It was about my journey to becoming a bag lady. If I can find it, I will forward it along. Thanks for your comments & info.
