Anyone who has had an inventory-based business can attest: It can be a real pain.
First you have to decide what to make or order; how many of each, what colors, etc. Granted, that can be the fun part, but given that it's an investment of time and money for materials, you can't make those initial production decisions lightly.
Once you have inventory in stock, and start selling it through one or multiple channels (your own website, Etsy, wholesale, street fairs), it can quickly get disorganized, and that's where it's crucial that you have your inventory and financial systems in place.
This is where Stitch comes in. Stitch helps you manage the business side of things while you grow your business. We want to empower small business owners to avoid common pitfalls by saving you time, helping you keep an eye on your inventory, and providing valuable, actionable data & analytics to assist you in making important business decisions essential to sustainably growing your business.

Our next StitchUp is scheduled for Thursday, April 26th, and we're going to be diving into this topic in even greater detail.

How have you avoided some of these common pitfalls? Has Stitch helped you in your business, and if so how? We'd love to hear from you in the comments!
