Podcast: Getting Started with Wholesale, with Jodie Rackley
We've got a craft-businessy subject today: we're talking about getting started with wholesale. It's very wise, if you have a craft business, to think about ways you can diversify your sources of income, and doing wholesale is a great option.
I'm talking with Jodie Rackley in this show. She's an Etsy seller who quickly branched out into wholesale, and now her products can be found in shops all over the country. What I like about Jodie's story is that it's really accessible - as you'll see, she didn't need any special equipment to get started with wholesale. She used simple, readily-available tools to get herself in front of stores, and she did it without having to pound the pavement and work up her courage to approach local shop owners. And it's made a very positive difference in her business.
