As we have been away from a little while, Adonica and I decided to have a lovely little chat to introduce Season 3. We discussed 2019, keeping the balls afloat, dealing with unexpected circumstances, practising self-care and of course MONEY.  We also reflected on previous podcast episodes (Maggie Semple, Tahlia Gray, Collette Phillip/Harriet Minter and the practical actions we took from these podcast.

We also discussed the popup – Adonica asked Janet lots of questions about this.  Janet discussed planning, a bit of ‘behind-the-scenes’ stuff, our favourite pop up shop moments.  Janet discussed the PR we received. the incredible process of working with fave Deborah T Johnson and fabulous team work and expertise. Ultimately there are no shortcuts. Janet needed to do the work to increase the probability of getting press coverage and the incomparable Deborah brought in her expertise and advice that was needed.
