Ep. 182: Evergreen Series - Turning A Hobby Into A Money-Making Business With Angie Wilson

Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 








Have you ever wondered how a simple passion can transform into a thriving business? Or what it would take to turn a love for making things with your hands into a profitable venture?

It’s a question that a lot of people ask when they start thinking about setting up their own business.   Or whether they could do something to bring in a bit of extra cash to supplement their day job.

In this episode I am resharing an interview I did earlier in the year with someone who asked themselves this same question … can I turn a hobby into a thriving business.  And for Angie Wilson, the answer was yes.

Angie, from Gnome Angel, is a former government employee turned quilting maestro.  And she shares her incredible journey from blogging about life and IVF to creating a quilt-focused empire. Her story isn’t just about quilting; it’s about perseverance, reinventing oneself, and finding success in unexpected places.

If you’ve already listened to this episode, I would encourage you to listen to it again.  It is truly inspiring.
