Thank you for posting this! It's a blessing to read it at a time that I need the business info, but mostly needed to be reminded to pray.

Linda Manning Findley

Wonderful interview and super advice ... setting up any kind of business is no cake walk and to make it successful, as you well know, takes a tremendous effort 7 days a week ... good job ... Linda F

Deryn- Thank you so much for sharing this interview with all of your viewers. It is quite inspiring to read haw you made this life happen with the dedication, WW, and all the others who have inspired you to persevere along the way...we all need "mentors"...You may be one of mine...

Your thoughts and advice are right in line with my own. I have to say that I haven't found FB to be that useful but then I usually get too busy to post on it. But from what you said here, I'm thinking that I'm not using Pinterest to its full advantage. I'll have to have a longer conversation with you about that. I most admire your work with online tutorials and that's what I'll be working on this winter. Thanks, Deryn.


Thank you for sharing. Great questions and answers. I agree, prayer helps me also.


good post!

Erin Prais-Hintz

Thank you so much for sharing this! I have long admired you, your work, your spirit, and this gives me such a bigger picture of you and your world. I also really needed to read this right now. You have given me much to think about and reaffirmed what I already knew but had to have someone outside me say. Thank you for being open to sharing this.
Enjoy the day.

Very much enjoyed!
Thank you for sharing :)


"Know your craft. Learn your craft and perfect the techniques it requires to produce the highest quality possible. I've seen lots and lots of people jump into selling their work before they were really ready. Perfecting your craft takes hours, days, months, years of practice. Invest the time to make it right."

Loved that. It's the single most important thing, imo. All the so-med in the world can't compensate for it's lack.


useful and timely information. thanks so much for sharing.

Dear Deryn thank you so very much for sharing this valuable information. This is just the kind of practical business advice that can be an inspiration to me and many others.

Frankie Brost

What a great article!! Thank you for sharing it. The thing that touched my spirit the most is that you pray for your students. I am blessed to have been taught by you in different venues and both are wonderful (though I do like being close in person so that I can hear laughter!!) I will be a returning student...and look forward to it with a light, happy spirit!! xoxo!! Frankie

What a great post Deryn! Thanks so much for sharing!


Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.


I agree with Seth. Thank you so much for sharing. It was generous of both of you to be so open. Best of luck to you and your interviewer.

How very interesting, Deryn. I so appreciate your sharing. I don't intend going into business selling what I make, but there's something else I'd like to pursue and your information may well come in helpful there, too. Thank you!


Wonderful questions and answers here. Thanks to both of you!!
