Maker Mastermind Show: Episode 3: Adoratherapy

Welcome to Episode 3 of the Maker Mastermind Show (formerly the Artisan Made Show). If you missed the first two episodes, you can catch them here and here. In this episode, I and my co-host, Christine Laureano, interview Adora Winquist of Adoratherapy in Asheville, North Carolina, and she answers the question when did you stop making stuff and start making money?

Adora had been making stuff for several years when, as a single mom with a need to provide for her children on terms that could work for her, she decided to stop making stuff and start making money. After a significant mindset shift, she decided to begin to move her business from doing great work and making great things to doing great work and making great things, and getting paid for it. The evolution has not been without its challenges, but it has been life changing. You will be inspired by Adora's story.
