  • Is the second edition very different from the first? I’ve read the first a few times before setting up DeBoop Shop with my mom, but was curious if I should maybe snag a copy of the second edition and pass the first on to another creative genius starting out.

    • hey kelly! the second edition has a lot of updated info for the modern marketplace regarding social media, etc. new perspectives from a new creative collective and new strategies for marketing your business online as well!

  • Thanks Bonnie! I’ve been meaning to buy this book for a long time, but just purchased it thanks to the second addition. Looking forward to it :) Happy Friday.
