Helpful and inspiring!
Love the honesty and depth of conversation and sharing. I’ve been inspired after every episode. Thanks for creating this podcast!
I love how honest this podcast is! I found this at the perfect time as I was struggling with some big decisions for my little biz. It has been so great to hear the cold hard truth from other product based business owners and makers, and so refreshing to know that I’m not alone in my struggles and triumphs!
My new favorite podcast!
I’m in love with this podcast. I listened to all the episodes in just a few days. It addresses many of the challenges I've had to tackle while growing both the retail and wholesale sides of my business. So many creative entrepreneur podcasts seem to be targeted at entrepreneurs who are just starting out or those selling services or digital products. It’s nice to find one that covers topics for businesses that are a bit more established and are selling physical products. Sarah is so natural and honest, I feel like we are bffs. Well done, Sarah! I’m excited for future episodes.
