Simplify. This is something I have a hard time with. I don't think I'm alone.
Back in March, look at what I was doing...trying to figure out how to balance FOUR online stores!! What was I thinking? I think I have unrealistic expectations. But I'm not beating myself up. Because at least I tried.
But I don't think it's working for me.
What I've realized is that I focus on my Ebay listings and my main Etsy store, Vyeshi. So I've made the decision to close down my other Etsy shops.
It doesn't really mean I'll be any less busy. I'll still list buttons and jewelry...but probably in Vyeshi, or on Ebay. I think I was spreading myself and my listings too thin.
Of course, I talk all about simplifying and in the next breath I'll tell you that I've opened a booth in an antique mall. ha! Oh well, there's more to that and I'll tell you about that next time.
