Lonna Weidemann lives by one motto..."Do what you love!" She does just that. As an online craft/retail business owner of 10 years, she has experienced the daily application of creating on a budget while mentoring others to do the same. Her experiences unfold into easy step-by-step publications. Why does she write? Over the years she has received emails of smiles through the net from many that have expressed their appreciation and excitement when it comes her easy to follow tips and clever ideas provided in her books. That in itself is her #1 motivation to continue her writing career.
In addition to her online business journey, she has taught classes to other entrepreneurs with S.B.A, won the Home Based Business award in 2005, won the N.M.O.A. Hottest Products Contest in 2003 with one of her crafting creations, while raising two children. Some of her favorite times was being a Girl Scout leader, mentoring entrepreneurs, facilitating craft shows and fundraisers as well. Lonna believes life should be lived to its fullest, doing things for others without breaking bank and giving from the heart. If she can help make that happen for others, then mission accomplished!
