Jessica de Boer ,

The best and funniest podcast I’ve ever listened to

I LOVE these girls! I found this podcast when they were already 46 episodes in and I binge listened to all of them in a week. I was hooked! Every single one of the ladies brings something unique to the table in their conversations, Jess is the maker boss babe who’s been doing handmade business for like ever, Deb is the adorable French/can’t always pronounce the words right business GENIUS (I’m also in her handmade business member group), and Mik is the badass potty mouth momma who puts a very real life twist on everything, being the only maker with the family life. I cannot say enough good things about this group and this podcast. Anyone who wants some honest advice about handmade business, look no further, this is the podcast for you! Thank you ladies for everything you do for this community!
