Sheryl Checkman was on the show a couple weeks ago to talk about graphic design and tips for entrepreneurs. She also runs an online retail store called Life is Balance and an Etsy shop that sells the cool t-shirts, digital fine art, jewelry and gifts that she designs. She is diversifying her income streams and risk, a step we love here at SFS Radio. She is with us today to share her experiences building her online retail business.
