It’s party time!

Can you believe it? It’s already been a year since we started The Business of Making. To celebrate, we are doing things a little bit differently today and taking you behind the scenes as we open up about the *real* reason we started the podcast, what our plan was initially, why it has changed and what it is now! We can’t wait to hear what you think, so make sure to join our Facebook Group and to let us know your thoughts!

Thank you so much for being with us every week this part year. We appreciate you and your support, and are looking forward to bringing you even more great resources to grow your handmade business in the future.

If you haven’t yet, you can also join our Patreon community and become a producer of the show for as little as $1 a month (with some perks obviously!) – Learn more and become our patron HERE.

~ Jess, Mik & Deb
