I have been very busy listing away in my shops these past few weeks. I have set a certain monetary goal that I would like and need to meet every day. I can't possibly accomplish my goal if I don't constantly list new items or renew the older ones. I am also expanding my horizons and listing some of my handmade jewelry supplies on ebay as well.
So, now I have 4 etsy shops, an artfire shop and I am back at ebay too. I can't miss, can I?
If I don't treat this like a "real" job I will have to go get one. I dread that like you would not believe. I had planned to apply for a certain job after the first of the year but I haven't done it yet. The thought of working for someone else again and working weekends and holidays just about makes me ill. So, I have redoubled my efforts and I feel like it is entirely possible for me to make a living doing this. I just need to keep working hard and I will succeed. I've already noticed a huge increase in my vintage jewelry shop sales so I know that my plan is working!
Any other etsy sellers out there that are having the same dilemma as myself? Are you torn between your business and needing a steady, reliable income? I'd love to hear what you are doing in this situation!
