What we’re doing

Do you want to ‘make it’ as a maker?

Welcome to The Business of Making Podcast with your hosts Mikaela Danvers, Deb Engelmajer and Jess Van Den.

Yes, there are three of us! We bring with us over 20 years collective experience in the handmade industry.

We’re calling ourselves ‘The Maker Mavens’ because we’re here to serve you, the creators and the visionaries: the Makers with Moxie.

We know from experience that growing a handmade business is BLOODY hard work. We’re here to make it a little bit easier for you by dishing out reality-based, no BS, tried and tested advice on how to make your business work. We’re going to get really clear on the business of making and we can’t wait!

Before we dive in, let’s get real for a second.

Not only are you the creative director, you’re also the CFO, manufacturer, marketing manager, administration assistant and customer relations officer just to name a few – Cue brain explosion.

If you’re up for your dose of business advice – based in reality: we’re a fluff-free zone – this is the place to be. Tune in every week for an honest conversation on what it really takes to make your creative business a success.
