- Do you enjoy making greeting cards enough to do it for a living?
- Are you familiar with the different techniques and tools of trade of making greeting cards?
- Are you prepared to do everything yourself – accounting, marketing, attend craft fairs, etc – to run your business successfully?
- What time of day/night do you do your best work?
- What equipment, hardware, and/or software do you need to do your work?
- How many hours can you work per day?
These are all important questions to consider, but don’t be put off by them it is just a process to help you identify your strengths, weakness and reasons for going into a greeting card business.

“The Fastest Way to Succeed in Any Greeting Card Business”
The first time I was told this secret something clicked in my head, it was like I had a revelation, it was that one thing I needed to know to make it all clear.
I was at a world internet and business conference and one of the speakers, a world recognized expert in his field said these following words:
“Fail as fast as you a can in your business because the more you fail the closer you are getting to success”
If there is anything you take away from this book make sure it is this. The fear of failing is one of the most common reasons business owners fail in business, because they fear making a mistake. That is why they fail.
Think about it for a moment. How do we learn in life, what has molded you into the person you are today? Life experience and failing and making mistakes is what educates us and helps us grow. This very rule applies to your greeting card business. Without failure you will not move forward, so fail as fast as you can so you can get to success quicker. Good luck and enjoy learning how to start a greeting card business.
