So helpful!

I love the advice given in this podcast. If you have a handmade shop, this podcast is for you! ♥️♥️♥️

Smeen ,

So much great advice!

I’d been following and listening to the Create and Thrive podcast(which is also amazing!) and when Jess announced that she was joining Mikaela and Deb to do another podcast, I immediately subscribed. The wealth of knowledge from these ladies is vast and I love how it is a lively discussion on whatever topic they are covering. I am a fairly new maker and my business wouldn’t be where it is today without these poscasts!
