Megan joins Therese Oertenblad from the Small Business Collaborative to talk all things Curated Makers, the high street and how to ensure your brand is retail-ready. Plus how to get involved with Creatival, an event hosted by The Creative Business Network and Curated Makers to connect and inspire independent, creative business owners.

As Therese refers to at the beginning of the podcast, shoppers are craving the availability of smaller, more personal brands, but the high street is failing to make this happen. Curated Makers was a result of Megan's goal to work hard for people whose values align with her own and to help small businesses make money. Thus, acting as a bridge and starting a company that is doing good for its local communities, whilst offering retailers an easy way to give their customers what they want.

But it didn't start that clear... Megan delves into how it all began and it might just surprise you! If you're a small business owner, you may want to get your pen and pencil ready for some real honest advice.
