About Us

A Woman With A Business is tribe of women in business! Celebrating success, solving problems, overcoming pain points. Real conversations with other women in business!  We are a new group of both new and established women run businesses, currently 40+ members.  We also have who are partners in their business.  We welcome Etsy sellers and non Etsy sellers, handmakers and non-handmakers.  Our differences in business allow us to network, share information, and provide an outside perspective on situations.  If you are a woman in business, we welcome you!

April, owner and creator behind MooreMagnets and ThePebblePathway, currently runs A Woman With A Business.  April started her business in 2005, knowing little about being an entrepreneur, and desperately needing the support of other women business owners.  In April 2008, faced with unemployment from the traditional business sector, a young child switching from pre-school to kindergarten, a husband working out of town, and two stepsons that needed time and attention, she found Etsy and a community that she will be forever indebted to.  She reached out and found an amazing community of women, and a few men, who were willing to give her advice, provide her with encouragement, and pass along their knowledge.

These women are the reason behind A Woman With A Business.  Without the support of other women in business, April would not still be in business now.  Through hard work, support, and guidance of other women in business she overcame obstacles and continues to thrive in business.

Slowdowns and Slumps - When to freakout, When to take action, and What to do about it.

Steady sales ... it is the goal ... it is the dream ... and it is also somewhat of a fairy tale!  If you look hard, sometimes you don't have to look hard, you can consistently find a business person complaining that they are experiencing a slowdown, that their shop is dead, they wonder if it is the end ... Seasonal ups and downs are normal, should be expected, and your season may not be Christmas! First, every business throughout the year, experiences ups and downs.  Those ups and downs do not occur at the same times for all shops ... even shops selling almost identical things don't always experience ups and downs at the same time.  Your competitors may be reaching a different market than you or have brought a previous customer base with them.  Do not kill your shop comparing it to other similar shops.  Base your fluctuations on your own shop visits, not another shop's visits. All businesses should keep track of their sales and visits to their shops.  It is up to you

Slowdowns and Slumps - When to freakout, When to take action, and What to do about it - Etsy Stats

This week I am talking about Slumps and Slowdowns ... how to know if you are really in a slump or slowdown, when to freak out, and what to do about it! Today is all about analyzing stats.  Over and over I have witnessed people freaking out about slowdowns because their stats are down from a day ago, a week ago, and a month ago ... but just this is not enough information to know if you are really experiencing a slowdown.  Retail sales are cyclical, and you need to know your cycles.  If you cannot deal with the natural cycles in your business, then you need to develop a new product line that will work opposite those cycles in your current business.  Trying to even out cycles in your current business is much harder than creating a product line that you market to a different market to fill in slow cycles.  Also note, that cycles in business will fluctuate year to year, and your sales should be increasing during these cycles year to year.  Although as your business grows, you may also fin
