My guest today is Lauren Keplinger of CreativeMomBoss.com where she helps Etsy sellers get the consistent sales they dream of.

Lauren started her Etsy shop, Funky Monkey Children, in 2012, and built it to a six figure business with over $170,000 in annual revenue.

She blog and podcasts about selling on Etsy over at Creative Mom Boss and her digital program, Etsy Roadmap to Success teaches Etsy shop owners to take their shop from that inconsistent side hustle to a consistent income they can depend on.

Today we’re talking about:
  • How Lauren started her side hustle selling on Etsy.
  • What Lauren did to scale her business when she maxed out her time and income.
  • How to find success in a saturated market.
  • Common misconceptions of the “work from home” dream.
  • How Lauren got her husband on board with her business.
  • The one thing that will determine your results above all others.
  • How Etsy sellers can better market their shop and get better traffic to their shops.
  • Why it’s not too late for you to start your Etsy shop.
  • What a typical day looks like for Lauren.
  • Her best advice for you if you’re struggling to get traction in your side hustle.
  • The one belief Lauren had to change about herself to get where she is today.

Lauren shares so much good advice whether, so whether you’re an Etsy seller or you sell digital products or group programs or one-on-one services, her advice applies to all of it!

My favorite quotes from Lauren:
  • “What I’m providing is valuable beyond the finished product.”
  • “Ask yourself, ‘What is moving the needle forward, what is getting you results?’ and do more of that.”
