Business Classes for Soapmakers
Month of January 2014
The entire month of January is dedicated to business classes for soapmakers! Come and learn to sell your soap for profit, which involves creating soap labels to meet the criteria of the 5 government agencies that regulate soap labels, learning to accurately set a price for your soap, and learning to determine profit margins.
At the Soapmaking Studio, we focus on business classes for soapmakers during the month of January because it is the best time of year to start a business. Some of the licenses and permits run per calendar year, so if a soapmaker paid for a business license in December, the license may expire on December 31 and may need to be renewed on January 1. Similarly, some of the permits must be attained in a specific order and if completed out of order, the soapmaker may end up paying for the same permit twice.
Let us help you to start, improve, grow, and expand your soap and cosmetics business. View the schedule of January business classes.
