Biz Ladies: A Resource by Design*Sponge

If you’re the kind of person who trolls the internet looking at other people’s homes (and I certainly am that kind of person), you may be familiar with Design*Sponge. Founded by Brooklyn-based writer Grace Bonney, the site features house tours, DIY projects, interviews, before + afters, great decor finds…you get the idea. If you’re thinking “I can’t spend time looking at some stranger’s renovated kitchen; I’m too busy trying to run a business,” then you’re in luck! Every Tuesday features a Biz Ladies article, offering great advice for women running their own design-based businesses.

Bonney taps experts in the fields of pr and marketing, retailing, business, and law for the column. Though targeted at women, the advice is applicable to most entrepreneurs. Here are a few sample posts I thought might interest our KTB community:

The Value of Your Work

The whole site is great, but I think the Biz Ladies section is a particularly valuable resource. I hope you find it helpful!
