The Real Truth With A POD Etsy Biz: I Break Down My Numbers

Uncategorized Jan 03, 2023

Passive income, make money while you sleep, it’s easy… Well, I want to give it to you straight so you have the right expectations and know if it’s right for you. 

Print on demand is hugely popular because for one it’s extremely easy to set up a POD business.  But also I think many are sold on the dream of passive income with POD businesses. 

Today I want to give you some real numbers (my numbers) when it comes to using POD vs doing your own manufacturing/production so you have the right expectations.

I am going to break down the exact profit margins, costs, and everything else you need to know.

If you're thinking about running or already run a POD business, this episode is a must-watch!

How Much I Make On Etsy Per Year - I Pull Back The Curtain

Uncategorized Nov 15, 2022

I want to go through my yearly sales numbers with you so you can see how long it took me to get to $100k a year on Etsy.  You'll also get a behind-the-scenes look at what I was doing in my biz at that time… 

This is the iceberg episode.  I often talk about the iceberg concept because it’s so relevant, especially today.  You are bombarded with the top of the iceberg content on social media.  The iceberg is only seeing the success and none of the failure or real stuff that's going on.  People are driving fancy cars, have big houses, and show stacks of cash making it seem like making money online is so easy.  These people if they’re telling the truth aren’t the norm and again if they’re really millionaires are definitely only telling you part of the story.  They’re leaving out all the failures, struggles, and time it took to make that money.

Today I want to take you through my Etsy business...

How Deconstructed Egg Salad Can Help You Figure Out What to Sell on Etsy

Uncategorized Nov 08, 2022

Have you ever had deconstructed food?  It is food that is presented in a separated way and not all mixed together.  You can better see all the ingredients.  I promise this isn’t turning into a cooking show lol.  There is a point to this.  For example, deconstructed egg salad has the ingredients layered and not mixed together.

You can use this same concept to create your own Etsy business and figure out what to sell.  How?  Well, you deconstructed it of course. 

Today I will give you 7 steps to deconstruct and start your own Etsy business.  This is the same process I used when creating my Etsy business!
