Hello everyone! My name is Aoife from KimDot and I'm originally from Tipperary in Ireland but now living in Vancouver, BC.
7. Can we have one pearl of wisdom you have learnt along the way? No matter what you want to achieve, say it out loud to as many people as possible. I've learnt that if you do this you'd be amazed at how many opportunities will present themselves, often unexpectedly. Somebody always knows someone who knows someone. Put it out there and you will always get something back.
8. How important is feedback to you? Very. I feel it's so important to listen to the people who are choosing to buy from you. I've learned a lot in customer relations from my Ebay store and transfered them to Etsy and my purchase pages on my blog.
9. Are you a member of any teams on Etsy - does this help? I'm a member of the Etsy Ireland Team (search craftyirelandteam on etsy) but I stopped using this when I moved to British Columbia. I just felt guilty using their tags when the items weren't coming from Ireland. The team is fantastic, friendly and has a great sense of community and helping out others. I was also a short lived member of other teams who were snooty and unhelpful... they made me appreciate the Irish team a lot more. Teams can be great when you find the right ones.
10. How do you feel about your life right now? I'm in a fantastic place in my life right now. I live in a beautiful area of the world in a job that allows me to keep up my creativity. I'm doing a lot of studying, researching and goal achievements for my photography. Things are exciting and busy and I love it!
