"A community is more valuable with every member that joins."
Communicating differently The community might look like a forum or a social media timeline in many ways. But it's not the look but the way we communicate in it that makes our community valuable to all.
'Sharing is caring' differently We share our experience and experiences with each other so that we can grow and learn from each other. It's not about likes, it's about learning. Because our community is behind a pay wall, we keep it safe from internet pests and offer a kind environment that makes you feel safe enough to share. It's like sitting around a table together and looking in each others eyes.
A different timeline A chronological timeline or filtering just wat you want to see. Posts from your host. Posts from the groups you belong to or posts from people you follow. You can change the content of your timeline to your needs. So no weird algorithms. Can I get an 'Owwww yeah!!"?
Focussed on our focus There are absolutely no adds. I might mention a product or course I'm running every once in a while, but that's it. You will not be triggered, annoyed or distracted by advertisements.
Paying in a more constructive way Free social media platforms are not free, you pay with information about your life. You are giving companies insights so they can target you directly in ways you don't even notice. Paying to become a member here will turn your money into a safe space because we don't have to attract companies for adds. It will help us to offer you information in an environment that is build TOGETHER with you. Decisions are not made ABOUT you but WITH you.
So if you were getting overwhelmed on social media, this is an opportunity do say goodbye to all of that and have all you need to grow and enjoy your craft practice here in a warm, safe, calm and loving community.

The BUILDING BETTER BUSINESSES CIRCLE was built from the ground up with the help of other small creative business owners like you. It’s all you need to lift and grow your business beyond the day-to-day: actionable chunks of info and assignments that you can implement right away. The kind of stuff that makes you clap your hands together and go ‘Oeh oeh oeh, let’s get to work!!’
FINALLY GET SHIT DONE
The BBBC is everything I needed and missed when I started out as a creative business owner.
It was built from the ground up and fully developed with the help of 4 crafty small business owners like myself. (Thanks again ladies!)
It's 100% focussed on topics that business owners need help with RIGHT NOW.
Multiple factors are set in place to help you to actually DO THE WORK YOU NEED TO DO.
You already are a person with a vision, passion and talent. You don't need help there.
You just need MOMENTUM, a soft kick in the bum and like-minded folk to talk to. Some systems in place, a bit of organisation PLUS the accountability, support and collective MAGIC of a community.
Short videos, written content and audio you can easily 'consume' on-the-go or in-between tasks, whenever is convenient for you.
✄ THE WORKBOOK
Actionable assignments that don't take a week to wrap your head around. Read, do, implement right away. Grow and lift your business as you go!
✄ ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS
Accountability groups, co-working sessions and live calls that motivate you to actually do the work. Sometimes on the spot!
✄ LIVE SESSIONS
These sessions are for asking questions, for talking things trough and bouncing ideas off each other. Sometimes for having a bit of fun. They are flexible to what you need. I'm here to assist and facilitate.
✄ THE CHECKLIST
A helpful checklist for crossing off important tasks so you can feel good about getting shit done! And find reasons to CELEBRATE every week!
✄ COMMUNITY MAGIC
You'll land in a private BBBC group. And you are automatically welcomed in the wider Ja, Wol Community platform. A magical place of crafty inspiration without ads and distractions. (It might even make you want to leave social altogether...just saying)
EXTRAS ✄ When you join the Building Better Businesses Circle, you are automatically part of the Ja, Wol overarching community were you can hang out with other makers and learn about their practices.
My name is Saskia, meaning as much as ‘short stone sword’. … just saying. I love Wes Anderson and Tim Burton movies and have way too many fountain pens. (deliberately not mentioning yarn...) I believe knitting with confidence and making conscious decisions in crafts, business and life will help you get more focus, make you feel les overwhelmed and get more done in less time! Making good and intentional decisions is a much more fun practice than you'd think. No blame and shame but an open and honest journey to a healthier lifestyle."
My motto: Buy Less, Buy Better, Make More, Make friends, Make it Last.
