In Supermaker, she shares how you too can start or grow your own business with advice on branding, product development, social media marketing, scaling, PR, and customer engagement, all based on her own hard-won mastery. 

In just seven years, Jaime Schmidt went from making natural products in her Portland, Oregon, kitchen to turning her brand into a household name and selling her company to Unilever - without sacrificing the integrity of her product or her creative vision.

  • Listeners learn how to get ahead on their own terms and while maintaining their commitment to fair and sustainable principles. 
  • A valuable resource to the ever-growing community of business owners and entrepreneurs who want to go from maker to magnate.

Following her growth from farmers' market stand to international brand, Jaime's book is a riveting mix of inspiration, the honest airing of mistakes, and indispensable instruction.

  • A go-to guide for the passion-to-profit journey. 
  • The perfect listen for aspiring entrepreneurs, makers, creatives, and anyone with an interest in natural products, selling your products online, retail strategy, and digital marketing. 
  • Great for anyone who enjoyed Start Something that Matters by Blake Mycoskie, Craft, Inc: Turn Your Creative Hobby into a Business by Meg Mateo Ilasco, and The Girls' Guide to Starting Your Own Business: Candid Advice, Frank Talk, and True Stories for the Successful Entrepreneur by Caitlin Friedman.

Can not recommend enough

This book is full of knowledge, direction and truth regarding entrepreneurship and the CPG industry. I first listened to the entire book via Audible. I just purchased the hardcover to bookmark multiple sections that really have clear and insightful direction on being a creative maker to manufacturing. It reads like a novel, but I feel like I am in my favorite class with every chapter! I am so grateful the author pushed herself to write this— it is so hard as a female founder (that is a maker) to get info like this other than by trial/fire. This will truly help push me and many founders ahead. Highly recommend!

Amazing story

Love that the narrator is the founder of the company, you can still feel the passion in her voice when talking about key moment in her journey. It's been a long time since I sit and complete a book in one day, but this book is the one once you start listening you will be attached. Definitely recommend for every one thinking about starting a business

She charts the journey with all the bumps, bruises, and steps along the way with such transparency it really makes you feel like you can too. It’s literally a roadmap to becoming successful by following your dreams with specificity around launch plans, partnerships, and so many details that can be related to anyone wanting to create physical or Digital products.
