Indie Business Podcast™

My goal with Indie Business Podcast is to help Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs build a solid business foundation, increase your income, and use your business to create the life you love. Through my podcast, I interview Makers from all walks of life, and they share their stories and business success tips, as well as their entrepreneurial challenges and how they overcome them.

The Indie Method is my signature training that divides the entrepreneur’s journey into four distinct and sequential phases that any independent entrepreneur can use to launch and grow a business or a brand. The phases are: Emerge > Engage > Evolve > Expand. Each consists of 9 distinct and clear steps that lead to a profitable and sustainable business and brand that is also fun.

The Maker Mastermind experience is a live entrepreneurial training event for Makers that I host in cities nationwide. It corresponds with the phases in the Indie Method, making it easy for people to choose which event(s) to attend based on which phase of entrepreneurship they are in. I have hosted Maker Mastermind events in dozens of cities including Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Portland, and New York. Our 2018 Maker Mastermind Live tour schedule will be announced in February 2018.

Through this brand, I guide, mentor, and train women who want to enjoy entrepreneurship for many reasons, enjoying the benefits of a certain lifestyle being chief among them.
