What I'm Learning

Hustle and Hope.

Launching my blog and Etsy shop has been a second full time job for almost two months now. Here’s what’s happened to me so far:

It’s been my lunch hour, evenings, weekends, and extra free time activity.
It’s definitely caused some lack of sleep, some late nights, and some early mornings.
I’ve used coffee and dry shampoo more than any human should be allowed to.
I’ve wondered if any of this hustle is worth it.
The shop and blog began as a way to release some creative energy, be my own boss (someday), and for the time being, make some extra money to help pay off my and my husband’s remaining student loan debt. I knew right out of the gate how much work would go into it, I just didn’t realize the energy required for the amount of work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I’m just stating that I’m going to need to get a caffeine drip going soon. I’m nearing the finish line of preliminary ground work, but there’s obviously maintenance that will still need to go into the blog, the shop, and developing my audience.

What’s New in My Etsy Shop, 5/1/17

It’s Monday again! This means two things: It’s the day where we ask ourselves, “Where in the heck did my weekend go?!” and it’s time for my Etsy Shop Update! Hard to believe, but this Friday my little shop will be one month old! It has been a month of learning, trial, and error. But there’s been a lot of valuable experience along the way, too.
