Owning an Etsy store

Yay! My Etsy store is turning 5!

Owning an Esty store is the coolest job I ever had!
I can work when I like at home or anywhere through the internet and this is the most wonderful part of my business.
Since I quit my day job I have had more time to myself and I can say my attitude is now positive or at least neutral and I control myself on hard situations.

I have more free time, I took meditation classes and yoga class and have read a lot of spiritual books.  I see who I am and what I have to do here in the Earth in the bigger plan.
I can see how I have grown during the past 5 years and I can’t turn back.
More time to myself means meaningful life and through this I hope to help others.

Happy 5th Birthday to my Etsy Store! 🙂

Etsy new tool ‘Shop updates’

Another example from my Etsy shop page how to use the behind the scenes tool for creating the brand around my products. It’s a prototype version yet, see my previous post to find out more.
Etsy calls it ‘Shop updates’ but I’m not very sure about this name…though the tool is awesome. I see tons of possibilities to use it!
Posts can be pretty easily share on social media, I use Pinterest and Instagram. Wanted to use Facebook as well, but the shared picture doesn’t look good because of the FB landscape format.

You could post photos only through your iPhone and tag one item from your shop on each photo you post. Etsy places orange price tag to each photo which you can move to desired position. Also, you may write a short description.

Take the time and think about these thoughts. Write it down and think what you really want.
