What are you passionate about? A few years ago I was trying to do SEO (search engine optimization) for companies, it was a horribly boring job and I wasn’t actually that good at it.
I had always thought wall decals were incredibly cool though, I liked designing pretty Cherry Blossom Tree designs that could be printed. I was much more passionate about that then SEO.
So my wife Gayle and I took the leap and started our Etsy Shop, Wall Decal Source.
We started our shop in 2012 and didn’t really have a clue what we were doing.
In our first three months we only sold 3 orders, it was really disheartening.
In months 4-7 we made over 175 orders though for a total of $12,927.92.
Since then our shop has made over 4,200 orders, received hundreds of 5 star reviews, and made it to the top 1% of all Etsy shops.
Getting started was tough, but it has been very rewarding. Doing something that you enjoy and love is a very rewarding job, and I’m really glad that we took the leap.
Gayle and I decided to do a free webinar and share our secrets to success.
