Actions and notes

References made during the podcast:

Start with small initiatives
Often we think that large is the best route to get started – for example A dressmaker goes out and borrows  money and opening a storefront may mean that you are in business but wouldn’t sewing three dresses and placing them in an online marketing place such as Esty (a marketplace for creators) be a quicker and easier way to start.

  • Blog, Facebook page, Esty page, attend a farmers market
