Show Notes

Is it possible for a hobby to turn into a successful career? In today’s episode, join me as I chat with Erin Garrity of iCrave Jewels, the artisan who transformed her simple pastime into a thriving jewelry empire.

Her journey from playful hair bow creations to stunning, unique jewelry designs is more than a business success story; it's a celebration of passion and how following your heart can lead to extraordinary business success.

Imagine walking down the street, your handmade necklace catching someone's eye, and then just like that, you make a sale – right off your neck! That's how Erin's journey into the world of bespoke jewelry began.

Her story is a vivid reminder that sometimes, the most successful businesses start out from the simplest interactions and the courage to embrace your creative instincts. You'll find that Erin's approach to business is refreshingly personal and deeply rooted in her love for unique, expressive jewelry.

So if you're a new entrepreneur or a seasoned business owner looking for a spark of inspiration, this episode is for you!
