Hi there folks!

Creatives Meet Business is an event and podcast series based out of Austin, Texas for artists and creatives to learn the ropes of entrepreneurship.

This episode features Pei Sim, Founder of The Paper + Craft Pantry, who joined us in February during our roundtable event on Goal Planning. This episode covers measuring success for yourself and ways to goal plan with you AND your business in mind. Without further ado, let's hop in and hear what she has to say!
