A local paper to Christina, the Liberty Hill Independent, is featuring small businesses all of October. They asked if they could interview us for their October issue and we said absolutely! Hear us chat about how our podcast came about, what we'd like to see in the future of our podcast, and what our most favorite parts of doing the podcast! Look for our interview to be published sometime this October! Thank you Liberty Hill Independent for being such an advocate for small business owners!
Join Jenni & Christina as they do a weekly check-in about practical ways to care about themselves this week.
It's necessary to check-in with yourself as you mom, work, run a business, be a friend, etc! We hope you enjoy our check-in and we hope you do it too! You can find the check-in posted on our instagram!
As we gear up for busy holiday season in our handmade small businesses, we compiled some practical tips that we have learned along the way. Things like cutoff dates, order fulfillment systems, and boundaries. Listen to Episode 13, Holiday Prep, for more!
We are so excited about this episode! You've heard our convos with each of these guests individually, and in this episode we brought them all together to hear their wisdom about caring for ourselves during the holidays. Not only as a small business owner, but our whole personhood. We discuss how to set boundaries in our business, in our extended families, and reframing what we think the holidays should look like. We hope it is as helpful to you as it was to us!
