julie's makers mastermind (4)

An exclusive 11-month program to turn your crafting hobby into a crafty corporation!

Julie's Makers Mastermind is currently closed to new members. We will have a new course beginning January 2021.

Instead of making hobby money, learn to make “quit-your-9-5-job" kind of money.

So you're ready to level up your business from mass producing Etsy listings? Awesome.

I know from experience that cranking out handmade crafted products all the time is tiresome, not to mention the inconsistency of the sales. Am I right?

Holiday sales are done- you know what I’m talking about- the “seasonal slump”. Then frustration and the negative chatter starts in your brain.


  • "I'm never doing this again"
  • "I remember when I used to LOVE crafting."
  • "I'm going back to just doing this for friends and family."

It’s  men-ta-lly exhausting.

And then, you start to lose your passion for the craft. The passion and excitement you had when you first started. Remember those days?  ...farmers markets and birthdays...PTA Auctions and Christmas gifts...baby showers and wedding gifts…

Looking forward to every season with joy - and a lot of time on Pinterest! HA! 

But the time...that seemed to disappear fast too...Where does all the time go in the day? Trying to fit in all the things "inventory, making, listing, customer support, marketing", it can be overwhelming! You’ve had enough.

Friend, it doesn’t have to be this way. I know this - because I’ve lived it.

What if I said you can make MORE REVENUE,
while making a DIFFERENCE in the world, and WORK LESS!

More than anything - you can make money, and LOVE CRAFTING AGAIN

I can show you how.

About Julie Siomacco

I'm Ready to Teach You Strategies that Work!

Julie Siomacco, Owner of Southern Charm Wreaths teaches the art of wreath making and faux floral design virtually for over 12 years.

I'm Julie Siomacco, owner, founder and lead designer of Southern Charm Wreaths, LLC and owner, co-founder of Wreath Makers Live, LLC. Having served 10 years in the financial sector as a business executive, I stepped away to be a stay-at-home mom of three. #Familyfirst!

In 2009, I took my passion for wreath-making and transformed it from hobby to full-time crafty corporation. I'm self-taught (just like you!) with a natural gift for color and design. 

Ten years ago when I started my business it was fun and I really didn't take it seriously. I mean it was nice to have extra money to buy a new roll of ribbon now and again. But my goal was to afford to make designs in order to decorate my house for the holidays. Because I could not afford a designer price tag, you know what I mean?


 Then the hubs lost his job and it devastated us. We were not ready for it and I was scared. Scared we couldn't pay the mortgage, scared the lights would be turned off, worried on how we would put food on the table.

After much prayer, yes I'm a God girl, and my research superpowers learned while working in the financial industry, it came to me. I could teach my craft!

And off I went to the races turning my crafting into a BUSINESS right on my kitchen table... But it did not sell right away.

In fact, crickets. You know what crickets sound like? It happens right after holiday sales and before spring sales begin. Deafeningly loud.

But then through lots of trial and error, I discovered a strategy for marketing my products, making more sales and turning my customers into raving fans!

In just a few short years, I built a thriving multi six-figure business.

After the success of my business plan, my inconsistent sales situation went away. We were able to pay the mortgage again... but more importantly, through the years, we’ve been able to donate more than ever to charities making a difference in the world all because of my (not so little any more!) crafty business.

This can happen for you too!

While I'm known as the “queen of wreath making” in the industry - I've been coached by some of the top names in the online sector and now a certified corporate consultant, which means I’ve helped THOUSANDS of artisans, like you, create a business plan of action.  

No more:

  • Confusion about prices 
  • Struggling to get customers
  • Losing money on the wrong or too much inventory
  • Figuring out what products are ACTUALLY going to sell
  • Feeling slimy asking for the sale

Helping you validate business ideas, create sustainable and scalable systems, and increase profitability, all while developing a meaningful journey with your customers.

And my process can be duplicated, over and over. 

Now instead of standing and cranking out handmade products in a hot garage (which is not fun with glitter) and relying only on my Etsy shop sales. I have other revenue streams with consistent income my family can count on. Income that happens in my sleep and while on vacation.

But the REAL TRANSFORMATION came when my customers would send me letters in the mail (yes, I said mail) and emails telling me how I've impacted their lives. Giving them courage and confidence to make life changing decisions that had nothing to do with wreath-making.

  • Overcome Alcoholism
  • Help fight Depression
  • Courage to leave an abusive relationship
  • Courage to Start their Own Business

We’re wired to take action but there’s nothing scarier than having an idea or dream and not knowing how to turn it into a reality or want to do something that they don’t yet have the confidence to do.

But what if you didn’t go it alone?

I can guide you and save you from the mistakes I made.

That’s why I’m inviting you to my exclusive 11-month program,

If you are reading this, you are likely just like I was when I first found Julie years ago. I was wanting to up my wreath making skills to make a little extra money on the side. I ran across her ebook. Always suspicious of offers on the internet, I wanted to buy it but had been scammed before. I kept checking Julie out over several days. Something about her words drew me in. And I have never looked back! Julie is the “real deal!” Her expert knowledge and guidance coupled with genuine interest in my progress, has led me to be able to build my wreath business to where it is today. Since joining the mastermind group, I have changed my wreath making hobby into a growing business. My sales have grown exponentially and with her encouragement, I have started my own wreath making group, Teri’s Wreath Works. If you are wanting to take your business to the next level, I highly recommend joining Julie’s Mastermind Group!

Whenever I would hear the word, “funnel”, I would automatically think, “Funnel Cakes”.    After taking Julie’s Mastermind, I now think of other things besides food when I hear the word, “funnel”.   I now think of  business strategies, ways to increase customer engagement, opt-ins and many things that lead to sales as well as keeping your customers.   It does not matter in what stage of your business you are.  Whether you are an Etsy shop owner hoping to further your reach, OR a brick and mortar entrepreneur looking for advanced strategies on how to grow your business, OR someone who has three business ideas and wants to either narrow it down to one or figure a way to incorporate all three (yikes . . . that was me), The Mastermind is for you.

One thing that helped me during this Mastermind, was the encouragement and “push” that I needed to put “old” ideas and former business plans into action.  The one-on-one calls with Julie cleared my spinning brain and got me on a realistic path.  For the first time, my "business"  has a roadmap.  I have direction!  The unit trainings were created to make us think, brainstorm, sharpen our skills, and to actually see our plan, implement our plan, and to grow in our journey.  Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the meet-up, but I could tell that it was a tremendous learning session that was personable and fun.  She even offered a few surprises, which is just like Julie!

As a crafter newly transitioned from craft shows to Etsy, I’m glad that I signed up for your Mastermind group!  Your videos and live sessions were full of practical, concise information that I could act on to improve my business and my crafting.  Your one-on-one conference calls were incredibly valuable.  On more than one occasion, you were able to walk me through solutions to problems I had encountered with my Etsy business.  You are genuine in your communications and your enthusiasm for all of us in your group – our meetings became the highlight of my month!  I learned so much about growing my business and more importantly, I grew as a person from your course.  Thank you for your inspiration and I look forward to Mastermind 2.0
