Creatives that run a business! How many started projects do you have in your little part of the Making Cool Shit With Your Hands Universe? Three? Five? Twenty? Too many to actually consider answering this question? It’s a common dilemma those of us who make awesome things find ourselves in.

It’s time to really get this cat butt wholesale train moving, and I’m hoping that having more choices will be helpful.
