Could you retire from your Etsy shop? - Discussions - Business Topics - Etsy Teams

If you work your Etsy shop full time and was lucrative enough, could you retire on your Etsy shop? I would like to. My previous full time jobs, including the Army. I only served 5 years. I did not see my self working there forever. My Etsy shop is finally the first "job" I see myself working forever. I can see this as my career. Can you?

Moebius Strip - YouTube

Do you know what a mobius strip is? Majority of people do not know what it is! This is the technique I use to create my twisted mobius hats/scarves. The first part of the video describes it. This technique gives the hat/scarf its magical twist.

Black Moebius Mobius Strip Cloche Hat Flapper by strawberrycouture

Create a story line with your Etsy listing:

For those of you who do not know that the moebius or mobius strip is, let me illustrate it to you in a story ~~~ Raspberry Jones wanted to walk on both sides of the universe at the same time. How did she do it? One side on both sides at the same time. She started walking with the ground below and the sky above her. Suddenly the sky was to the right of her and the ground was to the left of her. Whoa she shouted this is fun. She was then seeing the world up side down. Wait a minute, she thought. the water and I did not fall into space. Instead the ground was intact and rested above me. She then continued walking the straight and narrow path and now noticed the sky was on her left and the ground was on the right. Once again, nothing moved. She was the one who moved the whole time into her own little space. once she finished her journey, she smacked into the exact same spot she started with the sky back on top and the ground beneath her.

Why It's So Great To Print Your Own Labels

I get to use my printer again. Our printer desktop had a virus had to take it to the shop. Got it fixed and now is back home. Printing your own labels is priceless and the most convenient. Don't have to worry to make it to the post office in time. Drop it in the bin 24/7.
I said this because I am still jumping up for joy!!! This is a handy option Paypal offers whenever you make a sale. With a printer, you have the option to do this. Take advantage of it! No more worrying about the post office hours or seeing your postal personnel with tired of seeing you all the time. Not sure when they are envying you because you have your online business and they have to be stuck there at their jobs. They do have a steady job on the other hand. Shhh they don't know that. Anyway you don't have to rush rush rush trying to finish your order. Your time is yours. Don't forget that!

Another advantage is that postage is cheaper online. Delivery confirmation costs $.20 compared to $.70 at the post office counter. You save gas and time in line. Invest in a post office scale. Mine measures up to 10 pounds.

Be sure to know the 13 ounce rule. Packages no more than 13 ounces can go in the post office bin. If there is a case the package weigs more than that, then you will have to go the PO counter. Paypal doesn't allow you the option to ship first class mail international, unfortunately. Except if it is priority or express international. A great tool to download is the shipping assisstant USPS website has to offer. You can print the label, but you will have to pay at the Post Office. OK so the post office personnel won't have to see THAT often. Download instructions are here.

Not only will you look professional, you will be professional.

The homeless beauty queen: Miss Colorado USA on the tragic family trauma behind her pageant win | Mail Online: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"

A lot of the beauty pageants I've watched on TV featured crowned winners that their lives were happily ever after. We hardly get to know their lives afterwards. Now we know that hard times do not discriminate pageant winners nor the people next door. I'm glad Miss Colorado and her mother have the support of her friends who took them in as they slowly get their lives back together.
