In Lesson 2 of the #MakingItPodcourse, I discuss the cognitive dissonance and negative feelings that can arise when we are confronted with the gap between our expectations about our handmade business, and the reality of our handmade business.
I outline a few examples of where your expectations might be tripping you up, and causing stress, and how to work on creating more realistic ideas about the trajectory of your craft business journey.

What is the Making It Podcourse?
Over four weeks in July 2018, I’ll be releasing an episode/lesson of this course every day via the Create & Thrive Podcast (30 in total) on the topics of mindset, money, marketing, and business management.
I’ve created this course specifically for makers – those who create handmade goods to sell.
To create this FREE course, I’ve drawn on my 10 years of experience running my own successful handmade business, coupled with over 5 years of teaching other makers about handmade business right here at Create & Thrive.
I wanted to create something that was actionable and practical for all makers, no matter what stage of business you are at, and that would allow you to dig deep into 4 key aspects of the crafty biz journey.
I hope it helps your handmade business to thrive!
If you want to take your learning to the next level, the course conversation is happening daily over in my private membership community for makers – the Thriver Circle.
You can find out more about the oodles of benefits of membership right here.
