"I love your podcasts. They are incredibly inspiring and motivating."
Jess, I have to tell you how much I have loved your podcast for the last couple of years! Thank you for all that you do and share for the maker community!
"Absolutely love Jess’s podcast, it is truly like having a great friend giving you business advice. Love it, keep it coming Jess!!!!!"
"This series is fabulous!!! I wish there were more."
“Hi Jess – thank you so much for these wonderful podcasts – I’ve listened to them all; twice!"
“Thanks again for another great podcast, I love tuning in each week.”
“Jess is down-to-Earth, very knowledgeable and experienced. She has a wealth of information to share and gives excellent information and advice in this podcast. Well worth a listen if you are a creative small business”
“Wow this was great to listen to! Thank you so much, I feel very inspired!”
"Jess makes a really great podcast. It has a more relaxed feel, like she’s just talking to you over a cup of coffee about the topic. She’s highly informative, doesn’t waste any time, and has a wonderful speaking voice that is really pleasant to listen to."
Do you have big ideas… but struggle to make them happen?
I can’t count the number of projects I’ve never started, or not done properly, or been up at all hours trying to finish by a deadline!
Why does this happen?!
Because we don’t project manage properly, that’s why.
Today’s guest is here to save us from all of that! Kate Hutcheson of the Efficient/Creative has turned her years of project management experience to helping creatives like you and me work out how to get big things done.
She outlines a super-simple method for you to follow in order to plan and execute your next project… properly!
Can you be ‘successful’ in handmade business AND have a day job?
The question of ‘should I quit my job?’ is not an uncommon one.
Answering this question is a tad tricky as there are variables, and the answer will be different for different people.
However, there are three points that are key to remember as you ponder this.
One, there is no rush! Don’t just quit rashly and end up regretting it.
Two, you can hold a day job and run a successful business.
Tnd three, perhaps most important, do not compare yourself to anyone else! You can be a successful handmade business owner AND hold down a day job – the two are not mutually exclusive.
In this episode I cover a number of key points that you need to consider before you chuck in the day job.
Think you'd be a great fit for the show?
I’m always looking for new guests to interview on the podcast!
If you are a maker with a successful, profitable business, or, you have something to teach that will help handmade businesses, specifically, I’d love to hear from you.
