In this interview, I chat with Mei Pak about the 7 things you NEED in order to have a successful handmade business.

Check out the video, and then scroll down for my key takeaways and a list of all the resources we mentioned!


  • What you need to know to properly market your creative business
  • What aspects of your business should be to automated
  • Ways to hold yourself accountable
  • Which numbers you need to the most pay attention to
  • What to ask yourself if you’re thinking of creating a product based business
  • What areas in your business need to alight the most
  • And sooo much more!


  1. In order to have a successful business, you need to have a good product. Just ONE! It doesn’t need to be an invention or unique, all you need is the MVP.
  2. Make sure that the following 4 elements of your business are in alignment: branding, website, packaging and price point!
  3. If you’re having a hard time with accountability, create a schedule and follow it!
  4. Don’t wait for perfectionism! Launching an imperfect product now is better than never launching a product because it’s never “perfect enough”.
