… Being an entrepreneur is no easy task. I enjoyed the most is when I list my item up and people enjoyed it. Even though they did not buy it yet but seeing numbers in my cart makes me feel happy and make my day. The hardest things about being an entrepreneur is that hoping customer will like and buy my products.
… I discovered Etsy online since it is a great website for selling handmade products. I decided to sell on Etsy because I want more people to wear my handmade rings. In my perspective, my handmade rings represent my effort, and making rings brings me happiness.
… We remember the first sale very well – we thought what a brave person who is ordering something from ar away country somewhere in Northern Europe. Everything went well then, so we continue. Only natural Baltic amber is used for our malas. simple 🙂 sometimes our clients ask to create wood or stone malas for them – and we do so. But amber is an absolute winner.
… We are holistic therapists and work with Reiki, Angelic, and Ascension Energies – We have trained to help people remove blockages in their life that prevent them from moving into their Higher Purpose in life = We believe the use of crystals is part of this process. We started our business in 2004. We have also worked as professional therapists and as 12 step sponsors.
… I did have experience making necklaces and earrings when I was a kid, but I had to teach myself how to use a loom or do individual stitches. It didn’t take long to produce projects. I was happy enough for sale, but I do find that I don’t think my projects are as good as people tell me they are. I seem to be a bit of a perfectionist.
… I had no bad experiences yet, it is my style to always have a happy customer, no matter what, if the piece they bought is not what they wanted once they receive it, is better to work with them and change their unhappy experience into a good one. Bad reviews are probably the worst for new business and you want to avoid having any.
… We send probably 80% of products to international countries, the most popular being the USA. I think having more people in the USA means we have more customers that appreciate the hand made a grungy side of our product. We offer free shipping to AUSTRALIA, USA, CANADA, NZ & UK
… Surrounding myself with beautiful materials; natural pearls, Swarovski crystals, sparkly cubic zirconia, and gemstones, and my collection of vintage jewelry inspires me in creating my designs. Sitting in my somewhat cluttered, bright, cheerful little studio that is in my home is one of my favorite places to be!
… My day-to-day operation is usually consistent. When I sit down for the day to focus on my Etsy shop, I conduct things in a certain order. First things first, I always respond to customer messages before doing anything else, this is always my number one priority. This is especially important to me because the most important thing to have in an Etsy shop is happy customers
