My handmade business and life has been quite a journey so far!
I've been selling for over 20 years online through various platforms. It was always a hobby to make some extra cash. I started selling on Etsy 7 years ago and things started off... very slow.
I didn't take it serious or really give it the time it deserved. Not to mention I didn't know what I was doing.
I spent 2 years messing around like that until I decided one day that I was going to figure this Etsy thing out for real. I spent a lot of time and money learning and finding THE BEST strategies to start implementing in my shop. I had a few shops over the years but my main shop was my clothing company.
Once I became more consistent and dove into the deep end, my shop started to grow. I went from making a few hundred dollars a month to $5, 10, 15 thousand a month.
In 2018 I retired from my corporate job of 11 years to do Etsy full-time and haven't looked back since!

Now, my passion is helping other handmade sellers.
I see so many other sellers struggling to get their Etsy businesses off the ground. I know that with some help and support they would be unstoppable! This is why in addition to still selling on Etsy & other platforms full-time, I started Handmade & Beyond.
You're not alone and you can get your totally rad handmade business making the extra money you deserve. Maybe you want to pay bills, maybe you want that extra vacation, or maybe you want to do this full-time like me. The opportunity is there for you to grab!
Want to join me and hundreds of other Etsy sellers working to grow their businesses online? I'd love to work with you inside the Handmade & Beyond Community!
