How To: Be on a Design Team

by - October 08, 2016

I am positively delighted in our latest podcast along with the collaboration with Justine Hovey.  Together we delve into the wonderful world of Design Teams.  I wanted to go over the different perspectives of being on a design team and since Justine has a ton of experience of not just being on a Design Team, but also as a coordinator, I thought she would be perfect to pair up with to get view point from the member.

The podcast will cover the perspectives of the company, design team member and the audience we are targeting.  Justine's YouTube video will go over the view point from the Design Team member and the pro's and cons of being on a design team.

  1. Well Suzanne, I'm totally enchanted with these podcasts my dear! I am an older card maker and as you get older, you will often find yourself looking back, and I do not mean that in a negative way. It is "your history" and we all know the importance of that for growth, and wisdom. Without getting into a long story, let me just say that I feel strongly that never before has there been a time when our younger women need you well respected business women to help guide them, to teach them, to inspire them. That is you Suzanne! Thank you for another inspiring podcast and until next time....


Woo hoo! Comment time! I totally do a little happy dance every time a new one pops up!
