You’ve probably heard it said “follow your passion and the money will come…” or something to that effect. Well that’s a neat summary of Cindy’s Etsy journey. She went from collector to successful Etsy seller of vintage linens and graphic collectibles and in our conversation we talk all about how that came about and more.
Cindy’s Etsy shop is NeatoKeen and in our chat this episode, we cover Cindy’s Etsy story as a longtime seller on the platform. She also offers up helpful and encouraging information and tips for both new and veteran sellers to help find your own success (and that looks different for us all) on Etsy.
