running a business when you have kids can be tricky and we’re not kidding…
This week’s episode is a little different. We’re talking about kids and the challenges of starting or running a handmade business when you have one or more. How do you juggle it all? That’s what this week’s podcast is all about.
We’ll be answering questions like… “Should you start a handmade business while on maternity leave?”, “Do I need to close shop?” and much more.
