Meet the Maker 2016 Roundup Part 1


My team and I had a crazy-good time with our weekly “Meet the Maker” series this year! Each Monday, we introduced you to another product-based business that’s creating beautiful things and making waves in the process. We write each post in the hope that…


1. They inspire you to keep at it on days when your business feels like a bit of a struggle.


2. These “Meet the Maker” posts help widen your network.


3. That they help you keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the maker movement.


4. That they introduce you to a different mindset or new business tool that enables you to propel your brand forward.


As we wind down the year, I wanted to take this opportunity to once again share each of the amazing makers who played with us on our MTM feature this year.  We’re so grateful for their willingness to share the journey!

I hope you’ll snuggle up with some hot cocoa or a glass of vino and dive in to the first half of a fun retrospective… I pinkie-promise that your inspiration cup will runneth over. Stay tuned for our second half of our Meet the Maker 2016 Recap next week!
