Coming Soon: The Create & Thrive Podcast





So, there’s a new thing on the horizon: The Create & Thrive Podcast!

Yes, be prepared to listen to my dulcet Aussie tones as I bring you a regular podcast about all things create-y and thrive-y.

So far, I plan to include episodes such as:

  • Interviews with successful makers – basically the Success Story posts in podcast form
  • Interviews with people who know their crafty biz stuff – or who can help you thrive in some other aspect of your life
  • Q&A sessions where I answer YOUR questions
  • Info jams where I chat about a specific topic all on my lonesome

My goal is to give you 1/2-hour to 1-hour episodes chock-full of useful information, actionable tips, and practical advice from those who’ve learnt the hard way… so you don’ t have to.

I’ve already recorded a few episodes – I just have to do a bit more techy stuff (and teach myself everything I need to know about publishing podcasts…) before we can get the party started.

Also – I’d love to hear from you!

Is there anyone you’d love to have me interview on the show?
Is there a question you’d like me to answer on the show?
If the answer to either/both of the above is ‘yes’ – please leave a comment and tell me.

I can’t wait to share this with you… it’s gonna be a blast.

WOOOHOOOOO!!!!! I am so excited for this! Yay Jess!


Jess, my answer is yes. I’d love a podcast on how podcasting can help you define and further your brand and business.
I’m looking into adding video podcasts to my micro business to spread the word and I could use all the tips, and strategies you and others could share.


Looking forward to this. Its a great idea

What say you?
