Cat is an Etsy seller who is creating enchantment on Etsy with her handmade jewelry. When she’s not doing that, she coaches other Etsy sellers on how to grow their revenue so they can build the lives they really want.
What qualifies her to do this?
Well, Cat runs two Etsy shops – Spotlight Jewelry and Moonlight Supplies – where she has made a combined sales of over 100,000 products and earned over $1M. Yes, that’s over one million U.S. dollars doing so. This means she knows a thing or two about how to guide other sellers to grow successful Etsy-based businesses just like hers.
Cat has been selling on Etsy since 2010 and is currently in the top 1% of Etsy sellers. Her jewelry has been featured in many publications, including Harper’s Bazaar, Huffington Post, ABC’s The View, and many more. In our conversation, we talk about how she was able to get this type of exposure and how other sellers can set themselves up to do the same.
