Beginner's Mindset The Path to Etsy Success

Read time: 3 minutes

This week's edition of The Etsy Entrepreneur is short and sweet, just like me!

The weather is absolutely stunning in the UK. If you don't enjoy it while it's sunny, you will bitterly regret it when the rain starts. Anyhow, let's get to the point of this week's newsletter.

Over the past three months, I have tried to embrace learning new skills, such as writing these weekly newsletters, attending Cardio Tennis sessions, and learning to kitesurf. These are all things I have never done before, so I have no experience or knowledge of how they will turn out.

What I have learned so far is that I quite enjoy the process, even though I am still at the beginner stage. (My tennis friends might not appreciate my joy and would prefer me to have better skills!)

Time and time again, I hear statements from clients or new followers on my TikTok account saying, "I have just started, and I don't know what I'm doing."

This is perfect. This is where you are meant to be. It would be super weird if you knew absolutely everything about starting an Etsy business from day one. Even I, the Etsy Queen, didn't have a clue on day one.

Over time, I have built up my knowledge, gained confidence, and realized that having fun with it all is the main objective.

When we get too wound up about it not being perfect and not being millionaires yet, and we stomp our feet, pouting at the unfairness of it all, it literally sucks all the joy out of the process.

So, the next time you want to throw your hands up in the air and give up, remember that you just don't know what you don't know. You are still learning, and it's okay.


Bonus Tip: Embrace the Power of Community


While learning and growing your Etsy business, don't forget the incredible value of building a supportive community around you. Connect with fellow Etsy sellers, join online forums or Facebook groups, like my one , attend local networking events, or even consider collaborating with other entrepreneurs in complementary fields.

Being part of a community provides numerous benefits, including valuable insights, advice, and resources. You can learn from others' experiences, exchange ideas, and even find potential collaborations or partnerships. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals who understand the challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship can be truly motivating and inspiring.

So, don't hesitate to reach out and connect with others on this journey. Together, you can navigate the ups and downs, share knowledge, and uplift one another as you continue to learn and grow your Etsy business. Remember, a strong community can make all the difference in your entrepreneurial success.
