In 2007, I found Etsy and it changed my life. This cool new website gave me the platform to quit my day job and be a full-time seller in six short months. My life changed even more dramatically when I packed my bags and moved to Brooklyn to be part of the Etsy team. Each day since presented an opportunity to awaken possibilities within our community, and I made it my mission to motivate and educate in any way I could.
Now, I must move on and find exciting new challenges that will awaken my own possibilities. A quote from the movie Annie comes to mind, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”
I leave feeling thankful for all the opportunities, friendships, and mostly for seeing first hand the change Etsy has made in the lives of so many. Today, more than ever, I know Etsy can change the world – this responsibility is in the hands of brilliant and passionate people behind the scenes here. And you, dear seller, you are doing your own very brave part, helping make the world a brighter and more thoughtful place.
My last blog post, How to Beat the Etsy Sale Addiction (and Make More Money!), is about being brave and asking for what you’re worth. This is something we must all do together. If we all take one big breath, settle on a big, audacious goal, and ask for what we need to get there, the marketplace will stay strong and together we can take over the whole, wide, world. I can’t wait to watch it happen.
Two inspiring women, Michelle and Nickey, will continue to share their wisdom. I couldn’t ask for two smarter, more talented, or more charismatic women to continue Etsy’s seller education. I will miss working with them every day – they have brought so much joy into my life!
If you have questions for me, you can ask them in this Etsy Success thread. I wish each of you all the success you deserve!
