well hello there, maker!
Let’s be honest, pricing is one of THE most requested topics and searched for blog posts on all three of our respective websites, so we thought we would take the opportunity to touch the surface of this deep subject area!
What are the things you need to think about and include when pricing your handmade goods? Let our downloadable checklist guide you in the process and help you arrive at the price that can work for you and your business!
We hope you enjoy this episode – when you’re done listening, make sure to come and let us know what you thought in our free Facebook group.
Have a lovely week,

These events will be an opportunity to work closely with the 3 of us, in a small group setting. Think super actionable, “let-s-get-it-done-together-right-now” events. BUT… We need your help! We need you to help us tailor this event to what YOU really need to work on in your handmade business + you’ll get to help us pick which cities we should travel to!
