Welcome to my blog. I have a passion to sell what I love online and create a sustainable business that I can manage myself from home. My aim is to empower other woman to realise their dreams. I am no expert, I am learning on the way as well and I know there are many people in the same boat as me. I hope I can share with you my journey of what works and what doesn’t work. Would love to hear about your experiences too and together we can empower each other to do it for ourselves. I know you can do it.

As I am an Etsy Seller, most of my posts are geared to Etsy Success although any of my guides and tutorials will be useful for if you use other platforms to sell your products. You can visit my Etsy Store at Rhinestone Mumma

My Passion

I have been wanting to do this for years, to start a blog about my crazy journey as an online retailer and mum (this is my passion too) but where to start and what to talk about. Is anybody going to read this?

I have been doing this for years with lots of success and some failures. One thing I have learnt is that this crazy online retail world is constantly changing and morphing into something else and you need to be constantly researching and looking for better ways to do business.

I am a hard and fast eBay TRS (Top Rated Seller) and have recently branched out to selling on Etsy. I am in the process of setting up a stand alone website which is giving me a head ache with so many choices and options. At least with platforms like eBay and Etsy they have done all the hard work for you and with the right titles, keywords, images, products and price anyone can take on the world. But, over the years even eBay have made massive changes and what worked years ago just doesn’t cut it now. For one, the Auction is dead. I remember watching an item I purchased for $6.00 a piece go to auction and reach $95.00. This just doesn’t happen anymore. With the infiltration of China sites and massive competition from major retailers around the world those days are sadly over.
