The UK has always been a nation of entrepreneurs and small business ventures. And it seems our fair shores are also home to a nation of craft fans looking to bring in a second income from their wares!

This is Money recently reported on the number of Brits looking to boost their monthly income with a little part-time entrepreneurial venture. Many of these savvy folks are using very modern methods to start up businesses on the side. They're not expecting their second job to pay all the bills, just to bring in that precious little extra that can make all the difference. And what does this have to do with our craft mosaic tiles? Well, a lot of Brits are using their craft skills to sell products either via online stores or pop up stands. And they're mostly ladies. 85% more women start up second job ventures than men!

Going Online

Setting up a website to sell your crafts has never been easier. There are plenty of free website builders out there. They're not ideal long-term but can be great for fledgeling entrepreneurs testing the water.
