Week 5?! Already!? Are you feeling a little burnt out yet? If so, I've included lessons to help keep you motivated in tomorrow's Etsy Success newsletter–hang in there!

I won't spoil the entire newsletter, but I will let you in on the final task. Your last task is to connect in this Etsy Forum thread. Let us know how you are doing and check out the progress of another seller. Let's give support for those who need it and share our own insights from the boot camp exercises.

Ok, I admit it -- after week 1, I've been tossing the newsletters in my "save for later but really important" file!!! I've been prepping for three real world holiday craft fairs and the Etsy shop has been showing the effects. I will be playing catch up this weekend. Still really enjoying the newsletters. The life lessons were wonderful! Looking forward to reading this week's more thoroughly and reviewing the ones before. Thank you so much!

Adam's program may not seem to be relevant, but I think the point is that he decided to stop putting off until tomorrow...and began his vision today! I find his 7 life lessons are true. My productive times ae parallel to them and if I ignore the lessons, success and production drop quickly!
I got working on photos since you at Etsy often stress they be very good. I am not as good as I will be, but must say that the $15 photo tent I got on Ebay has doubled the quality of the ones I am taking. Jewelry photos aren't easy, especially silver, so I will pass that along to those of you looking for a step up in quality.

Hmmm, if it's Week 5 should I be feeling all prepared for the holidays? Yikes, I'm not ready!
