I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped us reach our first small goal of 100 Etsy sales… early! Our goal was to get 100 sales by our 4 month mark (Aug 12th) and we hit that yesterday! I’m happy, especially since the first month after opening I kinda hid our store from people because I was nervous, had no clue what we were doing, horrible pictures, etc. Huge shout out to those who were patient with us while we learned how to improve products, custom orders, shipping.. pretty much all aspects of business! It’s been a great learning experience and we are nowhere near done learning!
Our next goal is to actually get out of debt on this small business, and start earning a profit! Hopefully now that we are learning how to reduce costs, shipping, use every piece of material, etc – it will help shave away at that remaining debt. On to 200, 500 and 1,000 sales! 🙂
