Starting my Doll business on Etsy

Well today I have made incredible progress on my doll business. I finally listed an item on This is the site for artisans to sell their items. My first item is a pink stripted Barbie sized sofa. I only have one item up so far, but I can't wait to put more items up for sell. My Etsy account is about 90% done. I still have to add my picture to my personal profile. I got the Google Analytics up and running.... and I have now started my new blog.

Unfortunately, it is now 11:30 pm and I have a long drive to get home. Only to return here at my day job by 8:30am. My day job is really cool though. I make hats and handbags for a company called Because We Can. Check out our website sometime. Tell them Vanessa sent you.

But I digress. I am really proud that I have stuck to my goals tonight. I actually exceeded them. I knew when I was listening to those audio tapes, "Think and Grow Rich", by Napoleon Hill, that he was lighting my fire. I definitely needed it. I have been stop and go on my doll business since 2003. Persistence is the name of the game. I was so unfocused before. Moving from dolls to cake making to Real Estate to Accessory making. Blah, Blah, Blah. As Napoleon Hill said, do what you are passionate about, and be persistent about it. Don't Give UP!!!! I hear a few no's and allow that to deter me. Not anymore.

SO GREAT JOB Vanessa. You have made the first step. Tomorrow we will make the next step. But for now it is time to crawl into the car, drive yourself home, kiss the dogs, and go to bed.

See you tomorrow.
