Your Handmade Business is a podcast for makers about the big picture of your business brought to you by the Academy of Handmade. Each episode we tackle an important (and sometimes uncomfortable) topic about running a handmade business and feature perspectives and experiences from handmade business owners like you as well as the greater maker community.

But this isn't your average podcast! First off, each episode is short—usually 30 minutes or less. Second, each episode is focused on a theme that is relevant to running a maker business. Third, the Your Handmade Business newsletter complements each episode with a special message from my partner in maker crime, Sharon Fain, addressing the same topic. In your ears or in your inbox (or both!), however you like it, we're coming to you.


Isaac is a former maker, community organizer, event planner, and a creator of business education and support networks for the maker community. He’s passionate about finding your people, building lasting relationships, and thinking about the big picture for your small business.

Something different and something helpful. Those are the two big things I set out to create with this podcast. I want to let makers like you share their experiences while I serve as a guide to thinking about the big picture of your business—getting out of the weeds of the day-to-day making and working on the business you want to build. Through cut-to-the-chase stories and encouragement my goal is to propel you forward with confidence.

If you're enjoying Your Handmade Business, I would love your support by contributing to our podcast production fund. When you factor in interviewing, recording, writing, and editing, each 15-30 minute episode takes several hours to produce. And that doesn't even factor in feed hosting, transcription, and audio editing software. I want this podcast to be made for makers and supported by makers. And that support is key to making this podcast sustainable into the next year and beyond.

Thank you so much for your support! It means the world to me!
