Podcast: The Makers Collective
The Maker’s Collective
The Maker’s Collective is a business development hub and community for creative entrepreneurs, side-hustlers, freelancers and makers.
Here at the Maker’s Collective, we believe in a holistic approach to business where we integrate who we are with what we do. This means addressing our mindset, energy, mental health and well-being, as well as our entrepreneurship skills, business strategy and professional tool-kit to be happy and successful in today’s digital economy.
Welcome to your tribe of the 21st century, no-bullshit, heart-centred, scrappy af creative individuals who are here to design their lives, create massive wealth AND impact in the world.
The Maker’s Collective was born out of a desire to find a creative community and support group where it did not yet exist.
After Lacey made the leap from her corporate marketing, 9-5 desk job to pursue her side-hustle full-time, she found that on the other side of it, although thrilling and completely freeing, the lifestyle was very isolating and lonely.
After searching high and low for the perfect community to fix that, and coming up short… it became clear that something new would need to be created for the 21st century creative professional.
Before long, Lacey recruited her new friend Laura to co-host a podcast together (hear the full love story here) to support the growth of that community… and little by little, The Maker’s Collective was born.
