The custom apparel bible!

I just found this podcast and I binged listened while working on a large order of caps and it had me so focused! I’ve really been searching for a podcast like this being an at-home embroidery business. Made me feel better about some of the things I’ve been doing wrong and opened my eyes to new ideas! I already received a few extra orders this week using some of the strategies they taught me! Plus, it’s a bonus that Mark & Mark have great personalities together! Keep ‘em coming!
