Welcome back friends! For those of you who have just found our little slice of the podcast world, the Maker’s Playbook airs 3 out of every 4 weeks. On that 4th week (which was last week) I share my top photography tips of ceramicists and other makers on my email insiders list. If you missed out on last week’s tips, I shared my top 6 things to consider when buying a camera (or upgrading your existing camera equipment). If you missed out, shoot me an email at hello@makers-playbook.com and I’ll gladly send it your way. 

This week, Tom and I talk about the struggles of mental health, particularly in being self-employed or trying to create and put things out into the world, we talk about identity and how maybe the goals we don’t achieve are just signs that they were the wrong goals. We share how we’re both coming back to being true to ourselves, and we battle the worst-case scenario “what ifs” that plague anyone’s brain before they start a new venture.  And eventually, we do finally talk about the band he started and produced an album with all amidst the UK's on-again/off-again lockdowns over the last 12 months.

Need help with all those unending business decisions?

More often than not, as business owners, we have a lot of things to figure out. Whether you are full-time or a side-hustler, once one question is answered, another comes up. OR as our business grows, our needs change, and the solution we thought we had figured out 6 months ago, now doesn't work so well.

Too frequently, I see other makers crowdsourcing the answers to these important business questions online. While there's nothing at all wrong with asking others for advice, that advice can only be as helpful as the understanding of your own needs and goals.

The Savvy Owner’s Quick Guide to Smart Decisions is built to help you get better advice from others by creating context around the questions we ask.

Send me the guide!
