Sis sold the store

My sis and I started a bricks and mortar store.

What an amazing experience.  We both had days that felt like pure fun and days that felt like, well, the opposite.  Which kind of day we had, seemed to have a lot to do with money.

Bottom line ... how do you follow your bliss when so much of what allows the following seems to be tied into, well, the bottom line?

Needing to make the rent is not exactly the motivator either one of us was looking for.  So, we've shifted to selling stuff on ebay.  At least, we can do that in our jammies and we don't have the ever-present stress of worrying about the rent each month.


  1. I was thinking of this. I do like the flexibility that comes with working from home. But my art pals and I are literally exploding at the seams with art, merchandise, and ideas. It's worth the try, you only live once ;)

  2. In the past, I've had a business where we had an office with expensive rent. It was fine until the recession hit. Then things became so incredibly stressful, that I wanted nothing more than to work for someone else so I wouldn't have to worry about all of the finances. Owning an Etsy shop works perfect for me because the overhead is so small. Sounds like you made a good decision.
