Get ready for an EPIC interview, because Episode 29 of Rags to Riches is all about MadeTV – an up and coming platform where creative business owners can build their brands, connect with one another, teach and learn, grow and thrive!
Jo Packham is the President of MadeTV as well as a presenter (AND sponsor!) of the Rags to Riches Textile Upcycling Summit that is coming up in just TWO DAYS! We are thrilled to have her support, because she is a dynamo of awesomeness.
Jo has over 40 years of print experience, including two best-selling magazines for creative women – What Women Create and Where Women Create. She was editor in chief of both publications for 17 years before selling the business and passing the editing torch to move on to her next phase of career – working with Monica Michelle of BloomTV to create a similar online streaming TV network platform for creative entrepreneurs. It launches this summer, so stay tuned!!
MadeTV’s mission is to be a mutually supportive and beneficial community where creative business owners can gather, teach and learn together, collaborate on projects, distribute their ideas and content to wider audiences than they could achieve on their own, and build their brands.
"We will all just grow exponentially...you can buy from each other, you can help each other, you can teach with each other. I mean, it's endless!"
- Jo Packham on the connection and growth potential for creative entrepreneurs who join the MadeTV network
Crispina will be bringing her own brand to new territory as one of the founding Creatives on the MadeTV platform. If you have ever thought to yourself, "Crispina needs to be on TV!" Then you're going to LOVE what you hear in this episode.
As someone who has never owned a TV of their own, she might seem like an unlikely candidate to be on TV herself. However, as she says in this chat with Jo, Crispina is so thrilled for the opportunity to bring her work to this exciting new platform. The more ways to carry her messages of renewal, circularity, and sustainability to those who need it, the better!
MadeTV is clearly going to be a powerful way to boost and connect textile upcycling entrepreneurs the world over and amplify the critical message that we are trying to communicate to a planet that is burning. And, as Jo beautifully relates in this heartfelt discussion, it will be a community of endless symbiosis and communal growth and learning.
"'How can we support each other?' That was the first question that you asked me, and I was like 'Whew, that's a fresh perspective!'"
-Crispina ffrench on her first impression of Jo Packham and MadeTV
Sound familiar? SAME. Those are total Stitcherhood vibes!! And we seriously need more safe, nurturing spaces like Stitcherhood and MadeTV where community-minded "solutionaries" like Crispina and Jo can work together to create the kind of warm and creative world they - and we - want to live in.
Are you ready to feel inspired, energized, and supported? Get comfy and dive right in! This is the Rags to Riches Textile Upcycling Podcast with Crispina ffrench!
