one of the best

Jess Van Den is wonderful! Her podcast is definitely one of THE BEST I've listened to on starting and running a handmade business. She is incredibly inspiring, caring, encouraging, motivating, and positive. I would never have been able to start my business without her. Jess also tells it like it is and includes the hard parts about running a sole-prop business without glossing over the work and sometimes tears that can be involved in this endeavor. Her topics and interviews are spot on. You will not be dissapointed!!!! She is amazing. Thank you, Jess!

Human Help Manual

Jess Van Den is a human help manual! The information she shares is practical. Her instructions are clear. Her enthusiasm doesn't come from puffed up promises. It comes from a genuine desire to help handmade crafters succeed. I'm so glad I discovered this podcast.

Practical and incredibly helpful advice

To the point. No overinflated promises of magic results (which we have all figured out by now are complete BS). Real help for real makers who struggle to get their biz going and/ or thriving. I listen multiple times to the episodes that are timely for me and go back and look for past episodes that are relevant to my current place in the journey. Jess is amazing!
