Every business goes through sales slumps, but in a creative business, it can be easy to let those slumps completely demotivate you. Learn how to stay motivated and productive through a slump in sales at TaraSwiger.com/podcast193

What do you when sales are low and you feel awful? We just survived January, which in many industries is the slowest, lowest-sales month of the year. I got a message on Instagram this week of a maker who was having a REALLY bad month. Her sales were at at all-time low and she felt horrible. She was asking me what was something she could do to increase sales? So today I'm going to share with you what I told her.
