Mini Episode: Craft Industry Alliance

June 6th, 2016 · Comments

In this mini episode of the show Kristin Link and I talking about Craft Industry Alliance, a trade organization for craft professionals that we co-founded eight months ago. We're not at 800+ members, we're about to publish the 18th issue of our digital journal, we've held six webinars, and we have active discussions going on every day in our community forums. In this conversation we talk about what membership offers and who it's best for, we review some highlights (and a few frustrations) we've encountered along the way, and we tell you about some of our current members who are doing incredible work.

Membership is open now and the rates are affordable. Invest in yourself and your business this year and join the CIA!
