Hi there!
Happy February Wednesday!

And if you've made the leap, than you'll enjoy learning some of the tips Ina shares which she's learned along the way.

Kara Lamerato has come a long way since this podcast episode first aired and her journey between then and now is really inspirational.

She left a career in the finance industry to grow her Etsy business when she and her hubby started their family and now she's grown and expanded not just her Etsy shop but a full-fledged business and now a podcast too!

I plan to have Kara back on the podcast and I'd love you to hear how she has incorporated podcasting into her own business. It's wedding podcast because that's her target market and I believe as Etsy sellers you can use podcasting to reach your target market and grow your own businesses too.

But then again... Maybe I'm a little bit biased :)

In this week's throwback episode we discuss some topics that, yes, may not be relevant today anymore but it's a conversation that has some good info that's still applicable today.

Michele has expanded her service offerings based on Etsy's ever-changing marketplace and that type of flexibility is essential when it comes to selling on Etsy or any other platform.

Please feel free to reach out to Michele with questions, comments, and feedback.

Okay, so I hardly ever write what most bloggers call "epic posts" but I guess I just wrote my first one!

It really wasn't intended to be one, but at just under 3,100 words, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and settle in for this one :)

I felt led to write a post about fresh starts and new beginnings of sorts since it;s the beginning of a new year. I got the bright idea that some folks might be stuck at the pre-Step Zero stage.

This article is a roundup of resources for getting started in the business of making money online and offline with crafts. Specifically, this particular post rounds up online learning resources for learning a new craft or enhancing your skills in one you're already able to do.

I'm hoping this will be the first of many such resource articles though I can't promise (or maybe I should promise) that they will/won't all be pushing 3,000+ words :)

Happy New year Everyone!

I'm back in the podcast archives again and this time I dug out Etsy convo with Angela Frazier whose shop all started with some blingy shoes she made for herself.

I hope you enjoy this, at times, hilarious conversation with Angela and take time to check out how far she's come with her shop and how it's evolved and grown over the past three years.

By popular request, my podcast guest this week is artist and illustrator Julie Ann of the Etsy shop Julie Ann Art!!

With well over 63,000 sales on Etsy Julie Ann has a wealth of great information to share for both new sellers, veteran sellers, and those on the rise to their own Etsy success.

We talk about everything, and I get to delve in to how exactly Julie Ann went about turning what started out as a pure hobby into a FT business that now sustains her and her family.

Listen in and enjoy... As always, feedback and questions are always on the blog post, I'm sure Julie Ann would be happy to hear from you :)

Imagine traveling the world and experiencing different cultures and ways of living, only to get back home with a whole new outlook on life, and more surprisingly, a fresh perspective on your future.

That's exactly what happened with Alexandra Matthews, artist/illustrator and owner of the Etsy shop Soul Paper Art.

Being a nomad for a time was just the wake-up call she needed and when she got back to the U.S. she got to work and made her Etsy shop the success story we talk abou tin this week's Etsy Convo podcast.

Please hop over to the blog and leave your feedback for Alex... I know she'd love to hear from you.
