Voss Boss Entrepreneur Spotlight – Rebecca, Owner of Rebecca’s Crochet Creations

For many entrepreneurs and small businesses, social media can be an absolute game-changer! All it takes is one viral post and a business can suddenly take off.

At Like A Voss Inc, we’re highlighting local businesses and entrepreneurs who are killing the online game. This week’s spotlight is on Rebecca, Owner of Rebecca’s Crochet Creations.

Rebecca’s Crochet Creations first came to life a little over a year ago when I learned how to crochet my best friend a blanket after finding out she was expecting. Ever since I have been *hooked* on crocheting! The same best friend, later strongly encouraged me to pursue crocheting as a side hustle. Rebecca’s Crochet Creations is all about bringing the customers and my own ideas to life!

Our CEO Mandi interviewed Rebecca about her secret to success in business and in life.

A Little Bit About Being an Entrepreneur

1: How long have you been in business?

About 6 months!

2: What made you decide to break away from the 9-5 and start your business?

Actually, I still work full time! I work shift work, doing 12 hour shifts working with youths.

3: What do you love most about being a business owner?

I love meeting new people, and collaborating with other local artists & small businesses!

4: What is the hardest thing you have had to overcome as an entrepreneur? Something you did not foresee when you decided to start your business?

Burnout! It’s so hard to be burnt out from your craft, despite how much you enjoy it. I definitely didn’t foresee all of the connections I’d build with other local artists and businesses. Everyone is so friendly and supportive!

5: What is one thing about working in your industry that people would be surprised to learn?

How time consuming and expensive crocheting can be. Many people don’t realize how expensive yarn is, or that it could take longer to make something versus buying it in a store.

And Now Onto The Social Media Questions!

6: Do you have a favourite social media platform? Why?

Instagram!! It’s so easy to navigate, super user friendly. It makes it easier for small bossinesses to showcase their work through live videos and pictures!

7: How has social media impacted your business? Would you say that it’s an effective marketing tool?

I started my business mid pandemic. No visiting. No events. No performances. If it weren’t for social media, we would have had no way to reach anyone! Yet we blew up more and more every month (thankfully!) by being consistent on our socials!

8: What advice would you give to other businesses and entrepreneurs who want to use social media as a way to connect with customers?

Definitely build connections with other local businesses! Networking is a super big part of small businesses and the entrepreneur life!
