When I first opened my shop in 2016 I hadn’t a clue what I was doing. (Some days I still don’t!) I waited a wee while for my first sale and convinced myself no one would buy from me! Gradually, the sales began to come in. 😊
Joining the I heart Scotland Etsy team has really helped me. They are supportive and have great advice. ❤️
Joanne Hawker’s March meet the maker was a great experience for me and I’d recommend participating in it if you have a small business. It really focuses you and develops your understanding of how social media can help you. You also discover the work of such talented people.🌸
This year I began listening to Etsy podcasts and I’ve found them a positive resource that is insightful.
I still smile when I hear the Ca-Ching sound on my phone. Each sale is so important to me. I particularly love hearing the story behind a purchase. A big thank you to the lovely people who buy my work. 😘
Many of us makers simply just don’t believe in ourselves and think we are not good enough. 😕 So lovely feedback really helps.🤗
I hope I continue to improve. I’m always reading, learning and listening to feedback.
Today, I may have some cake to celebrate. 🍰 Something I rarely do!! 😉
