Elizabeth went from corporate America to Etsy but not by choice initially. She has since made some rising phoenix moves on Etsy and in our chat she shares very openly and honestly how this all came about.
Elizabeth runs the Etsy shop BowsAndSilosLLC where she sells mug toppers and tiered tray decor. She’s a proud firefighter and Marine Corps wife, loving full-time mama and full-time business owner.
Her Etsy shop is in the top 1% of stores on Etsy and she’s been selling on Etsy for less than a year (at the time of our convo) and is very close to hitting 5,000 sales in that time.
From being a professional ballroom dancer and instructor at Arthur Murray, to climbing the corporate ladder in retail at a tech company… Elizabeth had a career she enjoyed and life was going great. And in the way all good stories have an unexpected plot twist, so did hers.
We talk all about her journey in detail in our convo and I think you’re absolutely going to enjoy hearing it 🙂
