Crash & Learns are where I interview an entrepreneur about a time that they probably don’t want to talk about – a total business failure.

This week, I’m talking to Carrie McQuaid, creator of the Kindness Box, founder of The Creative Hub Conference, and all around amazing human being.

She took a side-hustle business crafting items in her classroom and evolved it into conferences, digital products and subscription boxes.

Talk about an amazing journey!

Listen in on Episode 78 and you’ll learn

  • How Carrie started out with just a hair bow in a classroom
  • What the “Kindness Box” is and what it stands for
  • Why “No’s” aren’t always permanent and closed doors aren’t always closed
  • All about the “Creative Club Conference” and how Carrie manages it to be a cohesive group
  • The importance of knowing what your customer wants
  • There is always something on the other side of the hard!
