Are you curious how people expand their businesses to open a brick and mortar shop? Liz Maute Cooke of Lionheart Prints explains her journey from creating her prints as a fun hobby to building it up to where it is today. She now has a storefront in New Orleans that you can go visit and shop from in-person. Liz goes really in-depth about how she actually built Lionheart Prints and she has great insights into what it takes to be successful with a product-based business.

Topics we cover:

— How Liz’s obsession with MS Paint (eventually) evolved into her full-time career
— Her experience of attending the Stationery Academy and what she learned that helped her begin putting together a cohesive brand
— The simple creative project she started on an airplane that helped her find her specific style
