About The Course


You have the passion. You have the idea. And you want to develop marketable accessories and a sustainable brand. You want to make in the USA.

We understand that life can get busy sometimes, or maybe your passion is your side hustle and you can't commit all your energy to it just yet. 

That's why we have created the perfect solution to get you started making accessories in the USA. This course will let you take your passion from dream to product, all without leaving your own home. Take your time, work through it when it suits you, and take one step forward to building a solid business platform for your soon-to-be marketable product. All made in the USA. 

So why do you need it? At Clutch Made we have seen first hand how many people come to us with a great idea but with no direction on how to get started. It's important for people  to become more informed about how to not only create a product, but how to create a brand they are passionate about. The secret is really that building your brand while building your product equals building a business. The course will introduce you to the tools that are necessary for you to organize your ideas and get them "down on paper". The course will assist you in  moving closer to taking your passion from idea to reality.

How can you use it? The entirety of the course is online so there is no need to rush or feel the pressure of a timeline or end date. This course is tailored to your lifestyle, whether you're working full time, or you are interested in investigating how to start a side hustle and get your ideas out there.

The course is broken down into five manageable lessons that take you through  the steps you need to get started making accessories in the USA.

Where can this course take you? Let me give you an overview here: 

Lesson one will take you through the steps on how to get started developing your business. We provide you with the tools you need to visually plan out the process of developing your accessories, from start to finish. We will walk you through the timeline and initial steps to get you rolling. 

In lesson two we help you develop the brand for your business. We talk demographics, locations, spaces, practicality and usability. Now it's time for you to start the process of designing your product. 

Lesson three will guide you through the five main categories for gaining inspiration and visualizing your design. We walk you through the steps of actually designing your  accessory and how to do it. 

Lesson four will walk you through the three 'P's' for branding, because there is no accessory brand that is complete without social media and marketing. 

The final steps for creating your accessories in the USA will be covered in depth in lesson five. From design consult to final product, lesson five will bring together everything you learned in lessons 1-4 and offer some next steps for bringing your passion to life. 

This course will take your passion from idea to marketable product. It will teach you all you need to know about making accessories in the USA.
