You know they say when you say a goal out loud that is you verbally committing to it… Wink

Why not practice like crazy and make your accessories for friends and family, and once you feel comfortable start selling on ETSY and see where it goes? You never know until you try.

I agree with soyjoy222 You never know what you are capable of until you put yourself out there.  I want to start making wedding invitations for a living so I keep telling all my friends about it, turns out I got my first customer so now I have to start!!!  Good luck!!

@Mrsgurzakovic: OH that sounds awesome! In my small town when I was a little girl there was a place like that called Doe’s Bows and all the girls in my class would have tea parties there and our moms would buy us cute bows for eachother!! Sadly, years and years later it has gone out of business 🙁

Etsy is a great place to start selling DIY stuff.  I have a jewelry shop on Etsy — it was really scary to start at first, but you can really make a name for yourself there.  I have friends who started on Etsy, created a following, and went on to sell offline or in their own online stores.  And one clothing designer who became successful because of Etsy won Project Runway in 2008!

You do want to make sure that you start off with a good product, though — I had several years of experience making jewelry for friends as a hobby before selling on Etsy.  There’s no better way to start than by making headbands for youself or as gifts for friends!

I’m a big believer in always going for your dreams. To me it is better to try and possibly have it not go as planned than to always wonder “what if…”. You tend to regret the chances you didn’t take more than the ones you did in life! Well that’s my hallmark way of saying go for it! Practice, get on Etsy, give friends pieces they can wear and promote you when they get compliments!

PS I too dream of being a VS model, but that is my one dream that I think I will have to let die haha
