"The Rise of the Lady Maker" addresses one of my favorite topics of late: creative businesses owned by women.
In the last couple weeks of #goingsolo I've been working out the kinks of solo biz and wrestling with the issues I mention in this article: self-promotion, accounting for the right-brained business owner, building audiences and standing out in a market full of people who make things.
Having a great community of lady makers in Des Moines makes these challenges feel surmountable (or at least a little less scary.)
Are you a Des Moines-er? Stop by Market Day's Super Summer Spectacular this Saturday and support these ladies who are making cool stuff. Are you a maker? Keep up the great work.
You matter and your work is so damn cool.
