Etsy Success Symposium 2012


Welcome to Etsy Headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn!

Were you at the Etsy Success Symposium?

It was so wonderful to meet with so many aspiring entrepreneurs and artists last Friday. Etsy team did an AMAZING job in pulling it all together with awesome workshops & networking and I was thrilled to be a part of it. I was inspired from the moment I walked in to the building :)

Here’s to doing what you LOVE each day and getting FOUND. Enjoy this workbook that Etsy put together for the event!



Here we go!

Always be in learning mode!

Reach for the stars...

... but don't forget to have some FUN! :)



What’s NEW? See you at Etsy Symposium! :)

Hey there!

With the new season comes a feeling of renewal and starting fresh. Something about the influx of cute baby animals, daffodils and spring-cleaning makes me want to shake off a layer and try something N-E-W.

Beyond cleaning house (both literally and figuratively) this is a great time to try something new! Whether it’s pushing yourself to try a new technique, bust into a new market or just get a new set of eyes to take a look at your business. We all can get stuck in a rut, or find ourselves in a comfortable habit. Someone wise once told me, “Do something that makes you uncomfortable each day… everyday.” Are you?

Get out there, take a class, read a book, talk to a stranger, try a new social media site. Think of all the possibilities you can pull into reach when you experiment! Besides, what have you got to lose but learn something N-E-W?

I would love to hear your NEW ideas and NEW ways to propel your business forward. Please post here and let’s shake things up in April.
