    Episode 95: Connection & Reflection w/ Lacey & Laura

    In this episode of The Maker’s Collective Podcast, we hang out and shoot the shit with each other, catch up on the year that has been 2020, and just connect. As you all know, connection has been incredibly hard this year as we continue to live through a global pandemic, and sometimes for us, it has taken creating space for ourselves through this podcast to really take the time to talk and feel our way through what we’ve each been going through and to truly connect. 







    This one’s a little more serious than normal, but it’s real and it’s us.

    Episode 94: Pivot…Pivot Again…Pivot Some More – Running A Small Business During A Global Pandemic with Amit Mehta

    Episode 94: Pivot…Pivot Again…Pivot Some More – Running A Small Business During A Global Pandemic with Amit Mehta

    In this episode of The Maker’s Collective Podcast, we sit down again with one of our very good friends, Amit Mehta, Founder of Good Co. Productions. 2020 has been a hard year for everyone - full stop. Things have been changing quickly and in big ways with huge consequences for people, communities, and businesses, and for many of our fellow business owners, like Amit, the only ways to survive have been to stay agile, listen to the needs of customers and the broader community, and pivot as often as necessary. Change isn’t easy, and we talk openly about that in this episode - warning, this isn’t exactly light and fluffy content. We dig into the hardest parts of being an entrepreneur because that’s what’s real and true. 







    Thank you for listening.

Kwisky ,

What I need in my life ❤️

Thank god for these beautiful ladies. I don’t think they even realize how much of a positive impact they are making in people’s lives...

As a very early listener of the podcast and follower of The Maker’s Collective, I have always loved their content but with a busy summer (and life) I wasn’t tuning in as much. But boy do I need it now. After coming back and listening to the last few episodes where they speak serious truths, dig deep, pivot and strategize, I realize how much I’ve needed this community again. Being an entrepreneur is hard AF and it’s so lonely to do it all by yourself.

So THANK YOU Lacey and Laura for everything that you do for your community 🙏🏼

Nuts + Bolts + Uplift = Practical Inspiration

I'm captivated by the Maker's Collective Podcast. It has a great combination of sophisticated information and candid honesty on the twists and turns of creative entrepreneurship. Following it lets you see a whole movement unfold, and I can't wait to see where this goes!
