Today will officially mark the end of season 1 of the Handmade CEO podcast.

I'll Be BAck Soon

I have had an amazing time interviewing talented artists and experts for the past 11 months. The next two weeks will feature the two most downloaded episodes of the season. I’ll be back on January 6th with more inspiration and all new episodes!

Wise Words

This past weekend Justen and I took a little time away from home to visit Galena IL. We had breakfast at one of my favorites, Otto’s Place. While we were there, I came across a quote by Miranda Marrott that is amazing, and I thought I would share it with you. I know this year has been beyond challenging for some people, tragic for others, but it has made all of us grow in ways we would have never expected! I hope you’ll hear these words and find the wisdom in them to help you grow and prosper in the upcoming months.

I choose

-click to print-

“I choose to live by choice, not by chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated; not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not to compete. I choose self-esteem, not self-pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinion of others. I choose to be me.”


There is so much power in choosing to be and do all of those things. No matter where you find yourself in your life’s journey, I hope that you’ll find the strength to keep chasing after your dreams!
