Episode 091: The Power of Etsy, Creative Careers and Big Opportunities for Makers


Power of Etsy With Dani Barbe | The Merriweather Council Podcast | Graphic 1

It’s always a thrill for me to be able to chat with my students about their businesses and how they have grown and changed since working with me. When I reached out to Dani, I told her I wanted to have her on season 5 of the Merriweather Council Podcast to chat about how she has turned her two creative passions into businesses and overall, her creative business trajectory. What we ended up speaking about did cover that, but also included so much more!

I can’t wait for you to hear from Dani about her music career, her thriving jewelry business and the incredible power of Etsy. (You can visit Dani on Etsy here.)

Dani is a PRIME example of how the power of Etsy can be leveraged for your benefit. She truly has made Etsy a part of her business and it works so well for her thanks to strategy and dedication. You are going to love her story.

I hope you feel inspired and motivated after this episode whether it is in your studio work or your Etsy shop!

I absolutely love hearing about how The Etsy Training Course helped Dani grow her business!

f you are on track to have Etsy be part of your business too, or if it already is but you want to learn how to use it better like Dani has, then I want to invite you to one of the upcoming sessions of my Free Etsy Masterclass: the 4 step process to unlocking the unique power of Etsy so that you can learn the same framework I teach inside of the Etsy Training Course!
