I've had a very love/hate relationship with Etsy.
I opened my first shop back in December of 2006.
I sold something the first day!
I sold something the next day!
I was on a high.
I thought Etsy was the coolest invention since air conditioning.
At the time I was on my end of the year break from my job
and had plenty of time to devote to Etsy.
However, I went back to work...
and I didn't promote my shop.
I didn't really sell anything anymore...
and then Etsy started getting CRAZY.
I just stopped.
Last fall I re-opened an Etsy shop after I took my
I really gave it my all - tags, specials, blogs,
facebook, group sales, cyber sales...
and I didn't sell a damn thing.
Things didn't seem right to me though. Something was up with my business flow. I didn't feel completely authentic anymore.
I needed something more.
I was really feeling that my craft was just a hobby and
there was something bigger lurking...
something I couldn't put my finger on just yet.
I went soul searching on top of a mountain and
I had an epiphany.
You can read about it here...
(The epiphany came later that day...
that I was to be a life coach and
help others manifest their heart's desires.)
Since then, I feel I'm with the flow.
I got my life coach certificate and I've been re-branding.
I have gone from Spirit Dancer Creations
to The Magick Muse.
Feeling extra inspired and on the right path,
I started to heal my Etsy relationship and start a new store.
I'm sooooo happy I did.
I got my first sale yesterday!
Just the encouragement I need to keep going.
I plan on incorporating my crafts into my life coaching biz...to inspire, empower, and help others find their authentic selves.
So...I'm off to add a couple of necklaces to my new Etsy shop.
Third time's a charm?!?!
I really feel when you align with your higher self,
all falls into place.
May you always be inspired and full of abundance!
