Harriet Kelsall - Turning Your Creative Talent into a Successful Business

If you’d like to turn your passion for arts, crafts, jewellery or handmade goods into a real business then this episode of the Ideas Lab Podcast is for you.

Harriet Kelsall made her first piece of jewellery when she was just 4 years old with her fathers help.

Now in it's 20th year of creating bespoke jewellery, Harriet Kelsall Jewellery has over 40 staff, 3 locations and won over 20 awards.

Harriet's passion for ethical jewellery has also lead to becoming chairperson of the National Association of Jewellers as well as being the first UK business to receive certification by the Responsible Jewellery Council.

Harriet is also author of the book - The Creative’s Guide to Starting a Business: How to turn your talent into a career, which recently won an award in the Business Book Awards 2019.

Harriet has some really fascinating things to say about what makes a difference between a creative business that takes off and one that flounders. She also explains how it’s not simply about your talent or the amount of effort you put into marketing.

There are lots of important lessons here about how to run any business successfully and how to manage that tricky balance between art and commerce.
