What processes does running your Side Hustle involve?
Firstly, following some inspiration, I’ll start doodling on my iPad. I create the individual pieces of work on there, then digitally manipulate these to fit my templates on my laptop. After I’ve built up enough new products, I order these from a printing company (further down the line, I’d love to print at home so I can offer customisation, but that will need to wait for now). Once they arrive I hand fold the cards and package up my products. It’s important to have good quality photos for social media and for my online shops and wholesale catalogue, and I currently take these myself too. Then, it’s time to upload these and create my listings, before promoting these on various platforms. So, it’s quite a long process from start to finish, but one I really enjoy every part of!
What's next for your side hustle? Are there any exciting new products to look out for?
This month, I’ve introduced two mugs to my range, and I am starting to create prints too. These are two lines that I’m excited to be expanding as we enter the new year, so watch this space!
