[149] Improve your Handmade Biz Workflow with these Awesome Digital Tools


Today I’ve got a suite of awesome digital tools and apps that will help you more effectively and efficiently run your handmade business.

There are all tools I’ve tried and/or use on a regular basis to manage my own businesses – and I’ve shared a number of them over the last 6 months during my Facebook Live Q&A sessions. Today I’ve brought a number of them together into one big toolkit of things to try.

If you know of or use any particularly awesome digital tools or apps to run your handmade business, I’d love to hear about them!

Share them in your IG Story and tag me @createandthrive so I can check it out. I’ll be re-sharing a number of these to my own Stories!

[147] The Circle of Control {Member Exclusive}


Hey Thriver,

Welcome to this month’s member-exclusive episode.

In it, I’m getting a little philosophical with you.

I want to introduce you to the concept of the Circle of Control (also known as the Sphere of Control).

The diagram below gives you a basic idea.



In this episode I outline what the 3 circles are, and how spending too much time in the wrong ones can lead to overwhelm, exhaustion, and even… giving up.

I reference a past workshop in this episode: How to Challenge Negative Self-Talk and a Lack of Confidence. This is available in the Thriver Circle right now – as is this full podcast episode.

If you’ve ever felt worried or stressed by things that are actually outside of your control (hint: that’s pretty much everything you’ve ever worried or stressed about) then this episode is for you.

[132] How to Have an Effective Monthly Planning Day (Premium Episode)


Do you ever feel like you get ‘stuck’ in the day-to-day of your business?

Do you find time has gone by, and you wonder ‘what have I achieved’ today… this week… this month… or even, this year?

This often comes about because we get caught up in the urgent tasks in our business – filling orders, answering emails – and neglect the important long-term planning and business development that actually moves our business forward.

By having a set time, at least once a month (or, if you can’t manage that, then every quarter) to purely focus on long-term goals, priorities, and planning, you should see a marked increase in your business momentum, and in how accomplished you feel!

In this members-only episode, I outline my advice on how to have an effective planning day. One that will not only be super-effective, but also, super-enjoyable!
