New to SF Etsy:
Asking Even--a space for your questions on all things crafty
I'm so excited to launch a new column for our SFEtsy Team~ Asking Even will be a space where you can anonymously inquire on any topic. I (even howard of nadene) will offer advice based on my 20+ years as a crafty business owner, teacher, yoga instructor, non profit administrator, gallery director, and generally try to be helpful person. All things Etsy, craft shows, scaling your business, creating work/life balance, living in the Bay Area, tech/media use, etc. are fair game. If I don't have experience with what you ask, I'll find those who do. I'll also draw on online and local resources to give you references for further exploration. My hope is that, over time, together we will build up a team created resource for some common questions about small business life in the Bay as well as a fun way to connect on personal topics.
This column will be an addition to our great community discussions taking place within our Google Group and the awesome posts here on the blog. One of the differences is that you can be anonymous here. The other big difference is that your individual questions will reach a wider audience than within our email group and the blog posts will increase our team presence and community. Thanks so much for joining in! We can all use the comment space below each blog post to continue the discussions as we like.
Please send your questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will try to answer all questions personally as well as post some each week on our blog. Questioners remain anonymous unless you specifically state otherwise, in which case, please include a link to your etsy shop if you would like it to be attached to the column. I'm looking forward to your ideas and inquiries!
