I've got some exciting news! I'm on the B.hooked Podcast!
I've been totally obsessed with podcasts for the last year or so, and love to listen to them while I work as a nice alternative to binge-watching Friends on Netflix for the 58th time (not that there's anything wrong with that). Ever since I knew that this whole knitting/crocheting thing is what I wanted to do for a living, one of the items on my bucket list was to be on a podcast. I wanted an opportunity to tell my story where you can actually hear me telling it, rather than reading it in an Instagram caption; An opportunity for you to hear my stutters, my voice quivers and all the other imperfections in my speech that I'm totally OK with, because that's what it's like to talk to me in real life.
Today (Aug 9/2018) is the release of my first ever podcast episode! The podcast host is one of my all time favourite crochet designers... Brittany of B.hooked. Brittany is kind of a big deal in the crochet community, with almost 150k loyal followers on Instagram (@bhooked), an insanely popular crochet website (bhooked.com) and over 230k subscribers on YouTube (B.hooked crochet). Needless to say, she's kind of a powerhouse when it comes to the crochet (and knitting) industry. I used her videos to learn to crochet 2 years ago so it's kind of surreal for me to be on her show. I met Brittany at the Our Maker Life event in Chicago back in July 2018 where she was one of the keynotes. She gave a powerful speech about planning and goal setting, and is living proof that if you work really hard at something, you can achieve it.
On the air, I told her my story. Then we chatted about how I plan for my year, markets, and a few mistakes and successes I've had along the way. We actually have quite a similar background! Brittany gave some tips and advice about some programs she uses to stay on track, and overall it was a great chat!
