I don’t know about you, but my personal brand of crazy is always worse at NIGHT.
I always get my most terrifying, “oh-shit!” inducing thoughts right before I fall asleep.
- Did I pay the water bill last month?
- Did I leave my debit card at the Mediterranean restaurant?
- My back hurts…are my kidneys are failing?!?!
- Is that noise my refrigerator falling through the floor???
(My brain LEGIT had these thoughts last night. In my defense, I DID warn you about the crazy).
OR the most terrifying of them ALL…
What if my items just plain WON’T SELL on Etsy???
Apparently, one of my Coaching Students had the exact same thought. She wrote me completely terrified, “I’m worried my items CAN’T make money on Etsy…”
And of course, don’t forget all the things she DIDN’T say:
- What if I did all this work for nothing?
- What if I have to start all over again?
- How can I build an audience for my product if it never gets SEEN?
