I currently craft soap at home for my personal use. I am interested in take a step to start selling my soaps. I have been doing alot of reaserch and speaking with other soap crafters concerning it. I am familiar with FDA (which doesnt require labeling more than name and type for soap not having a cosmetic claim) which I am familiar with and not where my question is heading. Anyway...what I am looking for is information on getting started in taking that step to make my craft a buisness. I contacted a home crafters insurance and am waiting for a quote so that I have in line. Still I am concerned and confuse about how and what I need to do. I read sll the info I can find on small buisnesses but still find myself overwhelmed and confused. All I want to do is take something I love doing, share it with others, and make a few dollars in the process. The more I read the more I find myself confused. I have asked this question to others soapers and they tell me the most important thing is the insurance but I have recieved little imput on actually what steps I need to take before I can actually sell that first bar of soap. (please excuse the typos and grammer it is 4:30am and I have been up all night reading what info I can find)
