6. starting a business

What advice do you have for someone starting a small / side creative business?
My biggest piece of advice: just start! You can dream and plan all you want, but it's all in the execution and following through your ideas. Stick through it when you feel discouraged and you'll be surprised at what comes from it :) Read #LearnWithPickles for random pieces of reflection/ advice, or watch my (almost) weekly YouTube videos.

Can we meet up and talk?
I'm so excited to now offer Creative Coaching Calls. Spots open on a quarterly basis.

Where do you get your products printed / made?
Finding partners is definitely a process and with all our products, we always test multiple vendors we find to see the best fit for what we're specifically  looking for.  I'd recommend reaching out to local vendors to find out more about their factory, process, and prices!

7. random

Where did you get your: studio inventory boxes, kitchen chairs, etc?
shop my Amazon shop here. I only put products on here I honestly love and would buy again in a heartbeat or gift to someone else! DM me to ask me about any of them :)

Where did you get your X? / Recommendations for places to eat in the Bay Area or elsewhere? / Can you link your Airbnb from X trip? / Baby recs list?
