One reason I love doing this podcast, besides getting to network in my closet with no makeup on, is I get to ask experts all my hot burning questions. I could have asked Abby Glassenberg questions for days because she is that well versed on the business of being creative and the creativity of running a business.
Be sure to check out Abby’s podcast While She Naps. Here are a few episodes we mention during the show…
While She Naps
I always enjoy talking to creative entrepreneurs about income that is more passive. Abby with her brand and blog While She Naps has built up several streams. She teaches online classes on her own site as well as
CreativeLive.com, has sewing patterns that are downloadable PDF’s and also sells e-books. Not only is she a whiz at sewing up and creating patterns for adorable plush toys she also uses that masters degree in education to teach about blogging, business and email marketing.
This virtual methodology for crafters to work smarter not harder is worth the listen alone!
Craft Industry Alliance
A newer venture for Abby is the Craft Industry Alliance which she co-runs with Kristin Link. Think of CIA as a watchdog group for crafters. Their vision is to build a trade organization that meets the specific needs of craft industry professionals and offer opportunities for makers, suppliers, designers and writers to join together as allies under a united “craft industry” umbrella.

Take a deep dive into the world of Abby Glassenberg. Between her classes, articles, books and podcast any craftprenuer or creative content creator should be kept busy for a good long while.
