Valuable, not-status-quo insights

We’re not usually taught to follow our excitement in our work and lives, so I love that Tara focuses on enthusiasm. The conversations she’s hosting about exploring more of what you truly want out from your business and using enthusiasm as your guide are so important.

Practical help for your crafty business

I’ve been listening to this podcast for several years and Tara never fails to talk about something that is helpful and timely for my yarn business. Her style is conversational and it feels like you’re sitting down to chat over coffee with a friend: a very knowledgeable friend who has the experience and research to support what she is saying. I can truly say that my business would not be as successful without Tara’s awesome information.
