I am so glad this week’s guest found me out there in the podcastosphere! Gloria owns the Etsy shop Creative Glo where she sells her crochet and knit items.
Gloria left a very nice 5-star review in iTunes for the podcast and because I sometimes watch the show’s reviews like a hawk, when I saw the review I put my sleuthing (stalker?) skills into action and found her to thank her personally. We found out we had quite a bit in common, including both being pharmacists, and I just knew she would be a great guest for the show.
She’s juggling a lot of plates so we have a good discussion about balancing all the different activities and demands of life while also running a business on the side. Best of all, Gloria donates 20% of the revenue from all sales to charity and she shares how she chooses which ones to support.
A lot of Etsy sellers dread social media but not Gloria. Hear how she leverages social media to promote her shop and drive traffic to it.
