I have a little business starting to kick off, a little, on Etsy. Finally. So much work goes into these little things. Many hours and lots of money too. But finally, finally starting to reap the rewards. I was starting to get so busy a week ago that I couldn’t sleep due to all the crap my brain kept trying to organize (at 3am). So at 3 am last Sunday night I got so sick of thinking I grabbed my laptop and started writing a list…which was titled 47 Steps To Success. Which I immediately regretted the number of steps, 47 is a hell of a lot!
I wrote little things and big things, from organizing the paper work to picking a font for the business. It was really freeing too. When I finished I immediately fell asleep. It has given me direction and enabled me to treat the Etsy shop like a real shop, because it is. I have set actual work hours and days off, goals for sales etc etc (and 42 other etc’s).
Since I wrote this list, sales have increased by 200%. Evidence my friends.
Sometimes if you can’t sleep you just need to get all the shit out of your head. Write a list. It works a treat for me, could work for you too, you never know!
