Grow Your Business with Information and Insight

It's the ultimate catch-22 of entrepreneurship; you go into business to be your own boss and then you discover you have to do everything yourself.

Jewelry designers are a special breed; they have an aesthetic vision they want to communicate in precious materials. And, oh yes, they want to make money doing it.

It's been the biggest challenge for design entrepreneurs (what Cindy Edelstein calls design'preneurs) to keep in touch with the business side of their business. For more than 15 years the design community has come to trust that Cindy and the JRB can help them stay in touch.

start quoteThe one thing we do best at the JRB is figure out what our designers need -- and answer that need. We've launched many different projects, events and initiatives purely because it answered a need. We've been educating design'preneurs with full-day conferences, short workshops, one-on-one consultations and printed books. ALL have their limitations that are now eradicated thanks to the online model of web-based education and communication. end quote

start quoteI can now communicate with thousands of designers at once in the time it took to coach one client through a specific initiative. While only a few hundred can attend my live conferences and workshops -- now thousands can access our teleconferences and purchase the recordings of events they couldn't travel to. end quote
