Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Dawn Soltysiak. Among her many areas of entrepreneurship, Dawn runs a farm, two galleries and a café in the Fennville, MI area. The goals of each businesses converge on teaching visitors to value hand made goods and local sourced food. In addition, her farm and studio are run on green energy harvested from solar and geothermal power. In our interview we talk about the tools she learned from being a realtor, balancing multiple businesses while being a full-time potter, and methods for using green energy to power your studio.
