Today on the Dear Handmade Life podcast we’re talking to Mei Pak from Tiny Hands Jewelry and Creative Hive Co. and drinking a Wandering Angus Cider. We talk with Mei about the importance of getting press, how to pitch, how to prepare your business before you pitch, the dos and don’ts of pitching, the rules of following up, how to get through the fear of rejection and more!
Here are the pitching mottos to put above your desk that we talked about:
- Competence = confidence
- If you don’t ask, you won’t get.
And links to a few things we mentioned: Mei’s podcast: The Business Buzz Podcast, Jia Jiang’s Ted Talk “What I Learned From 100 Days of Rejection“, Tiffany Han’s 100 Rejection Letters program and Flavia Bernardes Art.
Also, we’re giving away access to one of our online workshops (if you win you can pick whichever workshop you’d like) and a few bags of the custom-blended tea our friend Andy from Plum Deluxe created for our Craftcation Conference. To enter just leave us a review on iTunes here. We’ll randomly pick a winner and announce them at the beginning of our August 31st podcast episode.
