Instead of making hobby money, learn to make “quit-your-9-5-job" kind of money.
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.
About Julie Siomacco
I'm Ready to Teach You Strategies that Work!
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.
- 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 6-month program,

We’ll dive deep and I’ll help you evaluate your business and future goals. We’ll discuss the various ways to make money with your talents and what’s currently available within the crafting industry to help you cultivate a sustainable business. Learn to determine what income streams align with your strengths and your life’s purpose.
- Month 2 - Putting Your Crafty Corporation in Order

- Month 3 - Research Rocks
Research is my superpower!! You can create the best products but if your market isn’t in need, you’ll make no sales. In this month, you’ll learn how to effectively research product ideas that align with your purpose and calling so you’ll not only have quicker sales when launching but make a bigger impact in the lives of your customers.
- Month 4 - Crafty Construction
With over 10 years of producing multiple product lines, I’ve learned how to streamline and create shortcuts saving time and headache. In this month, you’ll learn how to effectively outline your product, build it and make it look professional.
- Month 5 - Implementation
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! You’ve done the evaluation, learned what your audience needs from you, researched the best solutions and produced a professional product the world needs. So this month learn to launch following a specific strategy that feels comfortable and not sleazy.
- Month 6 - When the Glitter Explodes
In this month, we’ll discuss what’s working and what’s not working and review solutions to fill in the gaps while saving money so that your efforts convert into sales and also make a positive impact on your audience.
Join by the end of the day August 1 and join the Siomacco’s for Appetizers and Beverages in the Siomacco Suite on Friday, August 2 while at WML.
Receive “Affiliates Sales Strategy - Case Study” - a step by step guide for promoting courses which I follow when promoting other people’s courses. It’s made me enough money to buy a year’s worth of college for Miss K for two years straight!

I’m so glad I knew about business coaching when I started my business. I joined Julie’s Inner Circle almost 2 years ago. I knew of Julie from the wreath community for some time. Actually, she’s the one who taught me how to make déco mesh wreaths from her E-book.
Julie’s coaching group was not the first coaching group I had joined. There were several others before hers. I don’t think she was even coaching when I first started. But I’m very glad I made the switch because I have not been disappointed at all and I’ll tell you why.
Julie is very attentive and puts a lot of effort into making sure all her members whether just starting out or already have a thriving business succeed and are treated equally. That was really important to me because I saw a lot of favoritism in other coaching groups.
Julie shows you by walking you through step by step on various topics including; how to set up your Etsy shop, marketing your business on all the Social Media platforms, even down to the details of pricing your items.
There’s so much information available at your fingertips in the portal and she’s there every week to answer all your questions and she really does! There is also a monthly call where you can get face time with her for more questions. If you have been sitting on the fence about joining her group, I highly recommend you jump. You will not be disappointed!
