Show Notes

Have you ever thought to yourself, "well, if I had that many followers, than I could sell more and quit my full-time job. Getting more followers is the solution to all my small business dreams!" Or perhaps, you've been watching a bit of TV and thought, “Well, if I was on the Great Pottery Throw Down, I could quickly increase my audience size, sell loads of pots, quit my full-time job and all of life's problems would be solved!" So, the question is: Is that the key to success? A big break like that? Well, today's podcast guest has some firsthand experience (and perhaps, some surprising insights).

 Rosa not only got to be on the Great Pottery Throw Down in Season 3, but she won the whole darn thing! And while there's been great interest in the work that she made during the show, that doesn't necessarily mean she wants to spend all of her time making Alice in Wonderland tea sets…

Figuring out the tangible, tactical, pragmatic details of how to build a business that suits your life is full of decisions after decisions - Etsy vs. your own website, Instagram vs. TikTok, making the work tons of people want after watching you on TV vs. making the work you actually want to make! The list is endless. Whether you are side hustling or full time, whether you’ve started selling your work online or are simply listening to these conversations dreaming of the day you might start selling your pieces… Snag our Savvy Owner’s Quick guide to Smart Decisions to help guide you through all of those recurring questions and decisions you have to navigate when considering how to build a business that best suits your life.
