Everett, WA (PressExposure) May 22, 2007 -- Starting a business is the dream of many scrappers and for the past five years, ScrapBiz.com has been helping entrepreneurial-minded scrapbookers do just that. Many small non-traditional retailers started on their own and until now, ScrapBiz has not offered services for those who flew solo at startup time. As of May 2007, ScrapBiz is now embracing and inviting all non-traditional retail scrapbook businesses to join them as members of the largest (by membership) retail support group in the $2.2 billion a year Scrapbook industry.
"As I discovered when I started out 6 years ago, running a business on your own can be lonely," says Founder and Industry Expert, Kim Guymon, "we've been doing this for long enough now that we believe every scrapbook entrepreneur will find a plethora of resources and support to help their businesses grow. There isn't another place in the industry for non-traditional retailers to get this type of info and support once they've started. If they didn't start their business with us, we still believe they can benefit enormously from membership."
According to the ScrapBiz.com website, current businesses must qualify themselves as having completed the startup phase in order to join under this special program. The difference is that an existing business is not required to purchase the ScrapBiz Business StartUp guide in addition to the monthly membership.
Current businesses may join by paying a nominal account set-up fee and then the regular monthly or quarterly subscription fees after submitting proof of business.
