Effective, efficient processes and systems are how you can make your business work for you.  There is no one-size fits all method for this.  If you plan on making 2 dolls a week or 20 you will need a system that works for you and in this section you will learn all of the tools you need to do that.

FAQs

Do I have to have an existing doll design?

I would advise that you have a doll design ready and refined by the time you wish to begin the course.   If you are using a pattern that you have bought to make and brand, please make sure you have the relevant permissions to do so. If you don't have a design yet then I advise starting out with the Doll Design Workshop

When does the course take place?

The welcome portion of the course and the first weeks contents will be available immediately.  One module will then be released each week for a total of six weeks.  The photography module will be delivered on week 7.   This is a self-study course so you can work at your own pace.

I have never sold a doll before, is this course suitable for me?

YES!  Absolutely!  If you have the desire to build a business you can start from where you are and learn as you go.  I do recommend having at least one doll design that you are confident in making before starting the course.

Will Health & Safety Certification be covered?

This topic will be addressed in the course but the advice given will be by no means definitive.  These requirements can vary greatly between countries and regions and it is up to you to do the research about the relevant certification you will need.  I will be able to show you how to access some of these resources and explain my own situation with regard to this but I will not be able to offer definitive or legal advice.

How long will it take to start my business and can you guarantee it's success?

You can take as long as you like to complete the course but I highly recommend following along at the pace of about one module per week at the same pace as the modules are released.  This will help your motivation and keep you on track.  The success and launch of your business are entirely dependent on the work you put in.  I can't guarantee any particular outcome but I can give you all of the tools to give you the best possible start and reassure you that building the creative business of your dreams is something absolutely within your reach.
