paper + cup podcast

earlier this week i sat down with minhee and truman of paper + cup press. i’m a huge fan of their stationery line and was thrilled that they were able to talk to me about their company, their thoughts on running a small business, how they met and everything in between. click here to hear their full podcast. the podcast runs a bit longer than most because they had such valuable insight on running a small business and the debate between mass market and keeping things small. it’s definitely worth checking out.

[thanks so much to minhee and truman for taking the time to record the podcast!]

    Listened to the podcast this morning. Terrific insight from this dynamic duo!

    I really enjoyed their perspective on running a small business doing something you love, while also understanding that you have to tackle all those “business” issues.
