From starting out with a shop on Etsy, Julia Baldwin Taylor has grown Aligned Adventure into a brand way beyond Etsy. She sells outdoor adventure inspired prints, canvas art, and mugs and is also a certified transformational coach.
One of her passions is helping other Etsy and creative business owners break through the barriers that stop them from accomplishing their creative business goals.
A life-altering experience not only made her question everything in her life but also resolve to never go back to a regular job, instead ensuring that she found a way to make her business work.
The end result… Within a year Julia had replaced her old salary, and then within a year after that she hit the 6-figure mark!
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of her story…
- Print-on-Demand (POD) business model and why Julia settled on POD vs. printables when deciding to go 100% virtual with her business
- Process of selecting the POD partners to work with
- Julia’s system of organizing her time and businesses (both her ecommerce and coaching businesses)
- Using gift guides and sending physical samples for product promo vs. social media as a promotional platform
- Process of growing and selling a successful business >> when to do it and if it’s right for everyone
- The value and importance of coaching to growing a successful business
- And lots more…
