The importance of community with Tori Brewster and Niki Swinson | CCs01e01 Cocktails & Chat | Meet the Maker

    • Entrepreneurship

Join Tori, Niki, and me for the first episode of Cocktails & Chat, a live podcast designed to promote community in the UK maker sector.  

Tori Brewster is The Diaper Cake Diva, on Instagram @diapercakesbytori. She makes the most fantastic centrepieces and souvenirs for this special time in life. Many recipients of her work keep the outer frames as souvenirs after removing the diapers, and I can see why!  

Niki Swinson is The Sweary Crystal Lady, on Instagram @magikal_echoes. She makes crystal grids, provides crystal healing, and facilitates several networking groups both in person and online. A woman of many talents!  

Highlights of this episode include: 


6:58 How Tori started on her journey to becoming The Diaper Cake Diva  
9:13 How Niki started building her networking groups and how she pushed herself to do public speaking  
14:45 Sara-Jayne's love of storytelling  
16:35 Who we talk to when working through problems in our work  
19:46 Some great resources that have helped us in our businesses  
23:59 Our thoughts on advent calendars and Christmas sweets  
31:56 Projects in the works: Tori's new Diaper Cake Diva Club, and Niki's new accredited courses on crystals and reiki 
34:27 Crystals!  
41:57 How to know when a work is finished
