Make It Happen: The Creative Entrepreneur’s Guide to Transforming Your Dreams into Reality is packed with hard-won insight and inspiration from Jenna Herbut. Referring to lessons learned over her fifteen-year-long entrepreneurial journey, Herbut shares case studies and insight from other creative and courageous entrepreneurs who realized their dreams by overcoming fear and resistance.

The author co-founded the Make It fair after touring as a vendor in craft shows and festivals across the country and selling her product, Booty Beltz, to 120 boutiques all over North America and Japan. Since the inception of Make It, the craft fair has grown into a bi-annual and three-city event, boasting 100,000+ shoppers yearly, and expanded to include MakeItTV and MakeItUniversity, which distribute online learning resources to emerging entrepreneurs and makers.
Make It Happen is officially released today.#page two news
