Are you ready to go Full Time?

I don't know about you, but I really am not satisfied with my daily 9-5 job.

One of my dreams is to run my own Etsy business full time! I've been selling on Etsy for about two years now just as a fun hobby--(well, there were two months where I lost my job and tried Etsy out as my only job on temporary basis while I searched for another job)
I really want be self-employed. And I think 2013 is the time to do just that.

But, before I quit my job and try to live solely off my Etsy income, I wanted to make a detailed plan. I expect it to take 5-6 months to get everything up and running! My tentative "quit" date is June 1, 2013.
The Quit List
  • Organize my shops: make one for vintage items and one for handmade, instead of having everything all together.
  • Save 200$ for marketing for when I first launch.
  • Have 100 items in each shop before the quit date
  • Blog every day here on Kitty Adventures 
  • Make sure I am making at least $100 a month. (Right now I average between $75-120 from etsy sales)
  • Have a detailed 5-year plan
  • Organize a sewing area.
  • Purchases a business license 
  • Have 200$ in the bank for miscellaneous unknown fees that may arise.  
I'll probably be making a blog post for each one of these bullets, so that you can follow along with me! I'm so excited!
