In early 2014, I had just quit my full-time job to stay home with my two girls. I was looking for ways to contribute to our household income from home. I decided to open an Etsy shop selling monogrammed and personalized gifts. In the six months my shop was open, I had plenty of sales but no profits. So today, I am sharing the lessons I learned for anyone who may be considering starting a business of their own.
When we first got started on Etsy it was very slow going. In our first three months our shop only had 3 orders. In months 4-7 the shop made over 175 orders for a total of $12,927.72.
