Wow, okay, I can't watch any more of this right now, but in case anyone wants to look at the shop that I'm optimizing it is at www.ComfyCottageCrafts.etsy.com I've had a an issue with a stalker this year so I've been been trying to get away from the Goinggreenmom screen name. As much as I like the name, that shop will probably go away as soon as I move the listings to the new store, I just wanted to do it "right" because Mom didn't think those pictures were "artsy" enough for etsy. I probably wasn't clear when I emailed because it was well past my bedtime. lol.
- On: Etsy - where all things handmade go to be sold:
Excellent information on how to find your way around etsy and how to do some research for your products to sell on Etsy. Holy Cow! Okay, I just have to add this in here... I put an alchemy post up for custom banners for both my eBay and Etsy stores--- within 5 minutes I had 5 bids! So either graphic designers just lounge around the alchemy section at midnight during the week, or maybe I'm just crazy! lol. Anyway, Awesome class, very informative if you want to know where and how to get started. Thanks!
- On: Clear the clutter with Sylvia of Organized Chaos:
The first class I listened to with Sylvia I picked up the 5 minutes for projects concept. I have a list of things on the side of my computer monitor that I just go down the list and do each for 5 minutes in the morning normally. This class I think the biggest thing that hit me was making room for new things to come into my life. I loved that story about the friend decluttering and having things happen for her after that. Awesome class! Thank you! ~Megan
- On: Preparing your business for an emergency:
Thank you so much for the checklist! You would think having been through this (I'm Pam's daughter) that I would know what I would have liked to have to get through it. On some things I do, others I hadn't thought of. I would like to say that as you put together the password list include the password for your virus protection software. Norton will automatically supply passwords if you have that feature setup, but it does no good if you can't log in to it. Mom's password list that was in her planner was 4 pages of about size 6 or 8 font with each page being about 2/3 of a normal size page. I WENT THROUGH ALL OF THEM AT LEAST ONCE! If you have a password for it, even if you only use it once in awhile, put it down. I would also like to add that if you are planning for car accidents or even if you would like someone else to take over if you pass, a process and procedures type of manual would be a wonderful idea. Knowing the Logins and Passwords for vendor sites is still pointless if they don't give you an ordering page of some sort, what is there procedure for ordering from them or having something drop shipped? If you email them with the order, who do you email and what is their email address? There are still drop ship items that I'm just hoping I can muddle through when they get purchased. As soon as I find (working on a spreadsheet. lol) all of the inventory that is HERE I am going to start calling/emailing vendors to find out how they work. I would also like to thank you guys for doing this class in honor of Mom. She loved working with you guys and I think she found a lot of joy in the challenges of running an ebay store, making Giant Squid, and all of the other things that she worked on online. I would also like to thank you for the support that I have had from all of you since I took over the things she was working on. Most of the family don't understand what she was doing, so they don't understand me working on it either. Having a positive place to go where people don't think I'm crazy for doing something on the computer has been a life saver. Thank You Again! ~Megan (Goinggreenmom)
- On: MINI - Using Google Docs in your business:
This would be sooo much simpler than some of the things that we tried to work with for inventory. I can't wait to start using it now! Thanks, ~Megan
- On: Taming the Chaos with Sylvia McClintick:
Wow! I am so happy that the ideas flow so well into things I have picked up from elsewhere... some things have just stuck so well, and I didn't want to have to totally change everything I was doing, just needed help making it work with a business AND a home. I love the time cubes, I think those are going to become "Mommy's Work Timers" as soon as I get them. :) I think I am off to start a spreadsheet and start recording all the inventory that I've gotten up here so far--- 15 minutes at a time! Can't wait to listen to the other recording with you Sylvia! Thank You!
- On: Profits Outside of eBay - Lesson 1:Part 1:
Wow!!! I had an entire class basically on writing business plans and was still going, what do I do to give myself this roadmap.... An hour class and I have a clue! THANK YOU! ~Megan
- On: MINI - Put Twitter on Autopilot - Includes Secret BONUS class:
This was an AWESOME class! I listened to it twice, and by the end of the second time I had set up the first two and applied for the affiliate thing. Now I don't have to feel guilty about not doing anything with the 100 or so potential customers! YIPPEE!
