My guest this week is my “sister” of sorts… Not by bloodlines but rather by nationality 🙂 We’re both Nigerian, and our home towns are actually in the same region of the country!
I have wanted to interview an Etsy seller based in Nigeria for a while but it’s been difficult finding one so I was thrilled when Amayo came along.
Amayo runs the Etsy shop Southern Pantherrr which she opened in 2016. She actually started selling her handmade jewelry and accessories in 2015 through Instagram and then expanded onto Etsy to help streamline her sales as well open up to a global audience.
She’s trained as a filmmaker with a specialty in sound design and like many other maker-sellers, felt the draw to express her creativity through crafts, and thus her business was birthed.
- The ups and downs of being an international seller
- Time management and how Amayo organizes her day

- Pros and cons of assessing your “competition”
- Roadblocks faced by non-U.S.-based sellers
- Product photography tips
- And more…
