Welcome - You Are Not Alone•
How do I grow side hustle hobby or my small handmade business? How do I Build my following? Price my pieces? Find my niche? Create a killer brand?
These are some of the big questions on the minds of many makers out there and here on the Profitable Maker Podcast, it's my goal to not only explore these common hurdles but to help you take important, actionable steps to build and nurture your handmade business like the boss you are.
Welcome to my brand new blog and podcast platform! I am so excited to finally share all of this!
In this first episode of the Profitable Maker, I invite you to join me to discuss common mental barriers to business success, shedding those negative beliefs and exploring a business journey ahead with positivity and purpose.
- Do you want to get past the feelings of defeat before you’ve even started trying to grow your business?
- Do you wonder how you can compete against the sheer number of other makers out there?
- Do you feel like a fraud that’s just pretending while all the other "artists" seem legit?
Why have I made the decision to extend myself and start a podcast?
I’ve been through the self-doubt, the comparisons, the feeling of being defeated, the overwhelm and not knowing where to start. I want to support fellow creatives out there like YOU who are tackling these things now.
Through trial and error, persistence and a great deal of encouragement from the Home Vibes community (A BIG THANK YOU EVERYONE), I have decided to jump in head first with this and I’m really looking forward to opening the conversation within our maker community.
As you may or may not know, I have been in the macrame industry since 2015 when I first opened my Etsy shop and started selling online. Over time my business has grown and I have transformed from being mainly an artist to suppyling materials to other makers, creating learning resources, patterns and tutorials for macrame makers around the world.
I’ve learnt over the years that I cannot do things in halves. I either give it 110% or not at all! I have been supporting and collaborating with other makers behind the scenes the best I can, but I felt that without creating this podcast and making a commitment to show up every week while also letting go of some of the other roles and responsibilities in my business, I couldn’t truly make the impact that I would like to.
I am also someone who strives for conscious living, being intentional about the choices I make, because after all, we are in a time and a place of great opportunity!
So here I am, and here I will be each week! I will also be over in The Profitable Maker Community each week where we can continue the conversation and get to know each other even better.
During this podcast I am going to share with you some actionable steps to harness those limiting thoughts and begin implementing positive movements toward mindful growth and I have created a downloadable worksheet to assist you to do just that!
