Can you successfully transition from selling at markets and in shops to selling online… when you make one-of-a-kind designs?
This is a very special episode of the show – in which I take you inside my membership community – the Thriver Circle – and share one of our Business Intensives.
Each month, I offer 2 Business Intensive spots to members, during which I hop on a live call with them – and with other members listening in and giving their feedback – and we spend time working on the key issues facing them and their business.
My guest for this Business Intensive is long-time member Kriket Broadhurst, who has been in the handmade industry for over 10 years – from making her own ceramic beads, to running an artisan shop in England, to coming home to Sydney and building a successful seaglass jewellery business based at markets around the city.
In this episode, we discuss some of the issues that crop up when you’ve been in business for a long time; we talk about how markets differ across countries; we discuss the challenges of taking a OOAK handmade business online (and strategies to make it work) and much more.
I hope you enjoy this chat with Kriket, and the peek inside the Thriver Circle!
