I have binge listened to this whole podcast since I discovered it a couple weeks ago! I love the conversations and tips and insights from the wonderful women. It is all such helpful information for those of us who are just starting out our handmade businesses! I also appreciate that you talk about jewelry specifically, since that’s what my business is! I will listen as long as you guys continue!! Thank you!!!

this is fun and challenging

This such a fun podcast! The topics are great for anyone who is running a handmade business - I am getting a ton of info, ideas, and support. The girls are just lovely and you can tell how much they enjoy and respect each other (the giggling is adorable). Each one knows their stuff and they bring great insigt into difficult concepts like email marketing, price points, motivation, holidays...everything. I am so gratefull to each of these ladies! Keep up the wonderfull work!
