Networking Group - Crafting Your Biz


Join Uber-Successful Scrapbook Business Owners
Traci Reed and Lain Ehmann!

Traci and Lain


Creating a business is a lonely prospect. As supportive as our real-life families and friends can be, they don’t always “get” the challenges we face… and they often just look at us with blank expressions, wondering if we’re still doing that “online scrapbooking thing.” Little do they know that what they see as a “hobby” actually pays the bills! That’s why it’s absolutely critical for any aspiring or established business owner to have a community of like-minded comrades, people who are actually in the trenches with you, battling the same demons and struggling with the same challenges.

Only another online business owner gets it when you’re ecstatic that you finally figured out how to get your payment processor to talk with your email list manager.

Only another online business owner understands why your autoresponder makes you want to pull your hair out.

Only another online business owner feels your anxiety about launching a new product, and then feels your joy when that product succeeds!

The efforts we make to connect with others and expand our business circle both directly and indirectly help us to grow our businesses. We (Traci and Lain) could never have built our businesses as quickly as we have without reaching out to others in the crafting community and beyond. We strongly believe that EVERY business owner needs to be CONSTANTLY in touch with others in her industry, brainstorming, networking, assisting, and collaborating.

That is why we created the CYB Networking Group. The focus will be on COLLABORATING AND NETWORKING with other serious business owners in craft-related niches.

Members have the opportunity to collaborate, connect, network, and brainstorm (and celebrate!) with others in their industry, in a safe and supportive environment.

Because this is YOUR group, you’ll determine what direction you’d like to take it. Want to do a monthly blog hop? Enlist your sister CYBers and make it happen! Want to create a joint training class with 10 other CYBers? It’s yours to grab hold of and drive!

To ensure that we keep the level of networking and discussion on-topic and useful to all, we ask that prospective members fill out a short application form. SPACES ARE LIMITED and we will retain a waiting list if there are no current openings.



Is the CYB Networking Group for You?

If you’re serious about building your online business…

If you’re ready to get on the fast track to success…

If you’re ready to commit some serious time to your career success…

Then this group is for you!

We’re looking for people who are READY for that next step, who will commit to rolling up their sleeves and digging in, and who are looking for a private, business-minded community to support their goals.

In the CYB Networking Group, you get access to a braintrust of serious crafty business owners who are committed to taking their businesses to the next level – and want to connect with like-minded individuals.

The exclusive Facebook group is the hub of our activities, where you’ll always find a warm body, ready to provide assistance, advice, a shoulder to lean on, or a great big YAHOO! when things are going right.

We’re dedicated to our businesses – and each other.


“You’ll Never Walk Alone…”

Here’s how it’ll work:

  • CYB Networkers will have access to a private Facebook group where you can share questions, resources, problems, and obstacles in a safe, secure setting. ($20/month value!)
  • Traci and Lain create weekly pep talk videos to address your most pressing issues. Building a business is hard work, and you’ll need support! That’s where the pep talks come in. You’ll get a weekly infusion of inspiration, ideas, and sometimes butt-kicking to get you back on track and rarin’ to go take on the crafty world. ($47/month value!)
  • Bonus PRIVATE interviews with super-cool crafty businessperson and business experts. You’ll occasionally get to hear the secrets behind super-star businesses. Lain peppers them with questions about their business story, picking apart their path to success so you can emulate them. This will be training and info you cannot find ANYWHERE else! (priceless!)
  • Bonus training videos. Let Lain and Traci take you behind the scenes in Aweber, or show you how to create a PDF file for download on your blog. Your questions will be many, young Padawan, and we have the skills to assist! (priceless!)
  • Bonus access to our archives. We’ve got over two dozen training videos and audio interviews already in place, just waiting for your thirsty eyes! Once you join, they’re yours! (priceless!)

“We Love CYB!”

(These comments are from those who took part in the first version of the CYB Networking Group, which was called the CYB Mastermind. Most of these women are active participants in our Networking Group and are waiting for YOU!)


“Without the CYB Mastermind group I would never have gotten my business off the ground. The friendships/partnerships I’ve made in this group have taught me what moves I should make, ideas for my class that were useful, helped me drive traffic to my site and just helped me on those days when I didn’t feel like doing anything but cry because things were frustrating. The knowledge and support I’ve received from these ladies is absolutely priceless!”
– Danielle Taylor, ScrapperontheStreet.com


“Without Lain Ehmann’s CYB Mastermind group I wouldn’t have been as productive in getting my business up and running. The support , ideas and advice by others in the group facing similar challenges has kept me going when things got tough. By sharing our talents with each other in the group, we are all propelling our businesses forward towards success. Everyone needs to know they are not alone when facing a challenge and the CYB Mastermind group has been a great source of inspiration to know I CAN do this, I WILL SUCCEED in reaching my personal business goals!”
– Debbie O’Neal of CraftyCutups.com


“The feelings of community and family we have developed in this group amaze me. All motivational speakers tell us that in order to succeed we should surround ourselves with people who will build us up and encourage our dreams. In MasterMind we get that. We even get our backsides kicked when needed. Also when we just need an ear to whisper our frustrations into, or a conversation to reevaluate our strategies. I have a great respect for the differences in our group and the support structure is the reason I am where I am today. Still plugging along instead of throwing my hands in the air and giving up.”
– Gee Zee of MESSTakenIdentity.com


“Lain’s CYB Mastermind group has been everything I needed to get my business started. Quality information about resources, sound advice about best business practices, friendly support when unsure or self-doubting, and a swift kick in the butt when self-sabotaging. Plus, it’s filled with people in similar situations, but different experience levels, and they ALL help and support each other. Great return on investment!”
– Heather Dubarry of NoExcusesScrapbooking.com


“Return on investment is what I received when I signed up for the CYB Mastermind. I would never have imagined that I would have come so far and create so many things in the time that I have been in this group. The friendships that I have made are priceless, the business coaching that I received is priceless. I have been encouraged to pursue my dreams, I have been inspired to not give up, I have been amazed by these wonderful women in this group. I could not have asked for a better experience. This group has made me what I am today and has molded me for a successful and amazing future! Thank you Lain for this opportunity in my life and one that I will never forget!”
Elizabeth Soler of ScrappingWonders.com


“Once again Lain has seen a need and provided worthwhile content for her customers. CYB Mastermind gives you the personal attention you want for your business questions while still providing you with a supportive community to bounce ideas off of. Make note of your website stats prior to taking CYB Mastermind and again afterward. I promise you will not only see growth, but will have a much better vision for the direction of your business. This class has been priceless for me and well worth the money spent!”
–Monica Bradford of ScrapInspired.com


“Joining the CYB MasterMind group was the jump start my business needed to get going! Having access to such a knowledgeable mentor is an amazing opportunity for a new crafting business. Lain has challenged me to find my purpose and to go after my goals. The group has been not only an amazing source of information, but the support from the other Masterminders keeps me encouraged and motivated in this potentially lonely world of online business building. I am passionate about sharing my business with the world, and now I feel that I have the tools to make this happen!”
Alice Boll of ScrapbookWonderland.com


“Joining the CYB MasterMind group has been one of the best decisions I have made! I have struggled with building an an online business, simply because I had not found the right direction for myself. I had many of the basics down, but once I decided to do what I was passionate about, I still didn’t really have anyone who came from a more creative background to help! When Lain decided to offer her helpful tips and insight, I jumped at the chance! Not only do I receive personalized suggestions from Lain, but I have an entire supportive group to bounce ideas off of! Having other people from more “creative” businesses, work to not only build their businesses, but offer tips to help me build mine, and the friendships we have created is a priceless experience!”
