We've joined the March Meet the Maker Movement created by English entrepreneur Joanne Hawker. It's a chance to tell our 2018 business story, make some connections, build some social media skills and have fun.
The challenge is very well designed and 2018 is the third year. She like many creative entrepreneurs was in the social media/creativity rut. A tough place to be! She started a month long challenge to show the different aspects of her business and asked others to join.
At Dulse & Rugosa we split the business jobs. Carly's is the actual maker. She starts by growing many of our botanicals and harvesting seaweed. She also makes by hand all our products. Then she wraps and packages everything.
Claire goes to markets, builds wholesale accounts, mails orders and is responsible for social media. At times social media feels like "speaking to the winds"-one of our favorite quotes by Gott Island author Ruth Moore. There are so many mornings when social media posting causes stress and makes me late.
Joanne has taken care of "posting stress" with a series of prompts. The prompts tell the story of your business.
Thank you Joanne and we can't wait to join others in building our creative community. Here's the link to Meet the Maker -
