What Factors Did I Consider When I Decided It Was Time To Quit My Job & Do Etsy Full-Time

Uncategorized Jul 13, 2021
 

Whew, that title was a mouth full lol.

I don't often talk about how I quit my corporate job to do Etsy full-time 3 years ago.  Maybe I should talk about it more, but it's really important for you to understand that it wasn't easy.  I never want to lead you astray and always want to be honest with you.   

Often times influencers position successes almost in a flaunty way and may talk about how easy it is for you to achieve the same success.

The truth is that it's possible sure, but not at all easy.  It took me years to even get close to the point of thinking about leaving my corporate job, then probably another year of planning to make the jump.

I wanted to do this episode for you in case this is your goal someday and take you through my thought process to help you.  Whatever you want your life to look like you can make it happen, but you have to start today.  I believe in you.  Consistent action will get you there.

What Do I Invest In To Grow My Etsy Business & How Much Do I Spend?

Uncategorized Jun 29, 2021
 

Let’s talk about spending money… on your business.

Many may not think spending money on your business is investing, but I disagree.  You have to be smart about it, but putting back money in your business strategically can help you be more productive, less stressed, and of course more profitable!

Your business is like a fruit tree.  You can’t just take all the fruit and not ever fertilize, prune, keep away bugs/birds, weed or the tree will probably die soon.  

Your business is the same way.  You have to invest and spend money for it to continue to grow.  If all you do is take the profits, they probably won’t last long.

In this episode, I dive into what I invest in to continually grow my Etsy business and about how much I spend on each.  This isn’t even everything.  I remembered a few I missed after I recorded this.  I’ll get them on the next go-round.    

 

Are you still struggling to get...
