Episode #06: Dealing with a difficult customer
If you've ever sold something and have a customer come back to you with a complaint, then you know some of these customers can be downright unruly. As seamstresses that are now business owners, we have to deal with these issues, and in a professional matter. Finding the right techniques that help you disarm unhappy customers and win them back. I know sometimes we wanna just kick em' to the curb, but I know you're better than that. Plus it is your brand's reputation at stake. The handmade sewing community has experienced this since the beginning of sales. If our ancestors could handle it, then so can we! You put your heart and soul into sewing your handmade goods, so stand up for your brand when you are right (professionally of course), and put the jerks to silence with kindness.

Episode #05: Dealing with a handmade Doppelganger/Copycat
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? That's what they say anyway. It could be true in certain areas of life, it’s really not reassuring when it happens in the business world. Copycats/ doppelgangers in our sewing world are other handmakers who sit on the sidelines and wait for others to find success, or they find successful products to mimic to attempt to achieve the same amount of success. As soon as they smell success, they jump in and try to make a quick buck. Most I'd like to say are unsuccessful, but when they are it really eats up your profits. Are you ready to deal with a handmade copycat? If you don't already have any idea how to, this episode is just for you.
