My guest this week is Auntie Divine and she runs two Etsy shops. Uncommon Folk is the jewelry store she first started in 2011 and Hautie Haus is her second shop which she started in 2015 for selling vintage clothing.
In our conversation we discuss her amazing photography and how she collaborates with other local artists and sellers (both on and off Etsy) to get professional shots without spending an arm and a leg.
From setting priorities, juggling a day job and figuring out how to prioritize her side business, to shop promotion… What’s worked and what hasn’t.
Listen in to hear the challenge I gave Divine and how you can follow along. I’ll be joining her in the challenge too!
