You know that feeling of joy you get when you spend time working on something you love? Making jewelry. Painting pottery. Designing accessories. You work on it in your spare time, between naps and loads of laundry or in your off hours from work. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could turn this from a hobby into a business?
Etsy artisians know all about this thinking. Many having been down that road, hitting peaks and valleys. Now you can learn from their experience through the Etsy Resolution, a free mentorship program that starts January 25, 2015 in Canada.
“We are thrilled to be launching Etsy Resolution across Canada and introducing potential makers to our community of sellers and experts through this online program,” says Erin Green, Managing Director of Etsy Canada. “With 72 per cent of Etsy sellers considering their shops to be a business, we look forward to encouraging more makers to pursue their passions and create businesses on their own terms.”
This free four-week program invites self-starters to learn from Etsy
Each week a new lesson will be released and can be accessed online based on your time. Launched last year in Australlia, the success of Etsy Resoltion has led to expanding the program within the Canadian market as well as France, Germany, Japan, and the UK.
What better way to make your dream into a reality than with the help of other artisians and creative souls who have been down your path. To participate in Etsy Resolution or to find more information on its scheduled lessons, visit www.etsy.com/resolution. You can also join the A dedicated Facebook group to share progress and build relationships.
