On the right way
This one sold yesterday, $10 including shipping. Because I only saw the sale today, a day late, I'm sending it express 2 day shipping. I want my customer to receive it by Friday, as he was supposed to, domestic shipping shouldn't take more than 2 or 3 days. The shipping was $6.50 + Etsy charges...I guess that leaves me with about 3 bucks.
All that is worth more than 3 bucks so I guess my business is experiencing negative profit right now. Heck, I'm such a good business woman!
But hey, I want my customers to be happy, to feel that they've got their money's worth and more. To open that package and feel like it's Christmas. I want them to love it.
Making jewelry is my passion. Bringing joy to others through my passion is my dream. Turning my passion into a profitable business is a lesson that I'm still learning. But somehow, negative profit and all, I feel like I'm on the right way.
