Perfection

Deb, Jess, and Mikaela bring the perfect mix of knowledge, skills, experience, personality, wit, and humor all wrapped into one wonderful podcast. Just finished listening to episodes 101 and 102 on pricing—so informative and helpful!

Best Podcast for maker’s

I love listening to these ladies! They have down to earth personalities and give us no fluff with running a handmade business. I loved episode 83 and it inspired me to start my Etsy shop and I have had 5 sales in my 1st month while using their tips of SEO and maximizing it. Thank you ladies for making such a helpful podcast and being honest and fun to listen to 😉

DebHarowitz ,

The best maker podcast!

These ladies are smart, know their business, are honest and straight forward (no hype or click-bait here). Their advice is spot on and truly helpful if you have a small, product based business. Theirs is the first podcast in my ears every release! They are also funny and have great accents!
