Trend Hunter's President Shelby Walsh recently interviewed Toronto design entrepreneur Hannah Browne to discuss her company 'Brooch Boyfriends.' Interviewing Hannah on behalf of the Globe and Mail, Shelby learned Hannah's inspiration to start Brooch Boyfriends, the challenges she faces as an entrepreneur as well as tips for designers hoping to start their own business.

Calling this process a 'labour of love,' Hannah notes that it is the joy these small pieces bring to her customers that inspires her to continue growing her business.

Hannah's tips for budding entrepreneurs in the crafting industry are to create as much product as possible and to attend art show after art show to meet new sellers.
