Best podcast for handmade business!

I run Allie's Handmade Blankets, and I love listening to this podcast! She helps handmade shops with the business side of selling handmade creations. I've run my business for almost 5 years and I have learned lots of neat tips!

Very inspiring and informative!

Recently discovered Jess's podcast and I've become addicted to listening to them while working in my studio! As a one-woman business, her advice really gives me encouragement and definitely helps me see things in a new perspective. Overall, I recommend checking her podcast out if you're a small business owner or in the handmade community.


This series is fabulous!!! I wish there were more. Jess has amazing insight, all practical and very business savvy, plus she has such a lovely voice. There’s a lot of advice out there, but hers is so useful and easy to apply, probably because she is a crafter, a business owner and an educator.
