Best podcast for makers

I have been listening to Jess’s podcasts for the past few years and every time I walk away with a brilliant idea or strategy that I can apply in my business. Jess has a wonderfully clear, concise and helpful way of delivering business strategies that are simple to action for maximum impact.

Inspiring

I've been listening to Jess' podcast for a couple of years now, and early on it inspired me to move in the directions of my dreams. After listening to the podcast, I joined her membership community, started on some workshops, popped into the Facebook group and it really started to bring everything together for me. I'm a stay at home mum who was going barmy not doing any 'outside work'. I feel now that I can make my handmade business a real success, and navigate through all the obstacles that come my way with the help of someone who has been here before.

Stellar

Create and Thrive is the perfect podcast for anyone with a handmade business or who is starting their own business. I love hearing from other small business owners who have had the same issues – and their success stories, inspires me with what is possible. It is also an endless source of motivation! Thanks Jess.
