Well thanks to the many wonderful customers... and Etsy Treasury creators... and super team members all around the website... and the Vintage Village.com, today I marked my 700th sale! It's very exciting and confirming that focusing on just one shop can be a good move.
Something that I struggled with for over a year has proven itself: simplifying in the internet business world is good housekeeping. Every new site that comes along tells me ... "We can do more for you!" or "join us - we're the fastest growing..." The claims always sound great and on the surface it looks like a major event.
But for any newbie in the internet business world, I have one solid piece of advice: pick your corner and work it consistently. Every thought and every little pebble you cast, causes ripples beyond your wildest imagination! The more I remain focused on one store and a small handful of social networking sites, the better the sales. Without a staff, it is just impossible to spread the time over too many places. I refuse to work like a workaholic any more. What is the point? Life is too short and there are so many roses yet to smell!
