If we’re honest with ourselves, most of us go through periods in our lives when we don’t feel confident. And if you suffer from depression like I do, these moments are increased. Beyond that, we might feel like we just are not where we want to be at all and wonder if we’ll ever get there. During those times, we might feel like a complete and utter failure. Let me tell you, when your confidence is that low, it can be difficult to work up the motivation to get anything done.
Have you ever felt like just throwing in the towel on one of your goals or even your Etsy shop? I know that I have. Listen, there’s no shame in not being able to stay motivated 100% of the time.

I find that if I follow these proven productivity tips for successful Etsy shops, I quickly get motivated to start working again after taking time off. As an Etsy shop owner, we all have those days, when our hectic family life gets in the way of our home based business. Then we put our business on hold for a couple of hours or even days.

When these family events happen, getting back to work can be a challenge to get motivated again and we find that we have lost our craft mojo! I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. I hope you can use the productivity tips for successful Etsy shops to jump start your productivity too.

The new Etsy shop homepage was unveiled last week and I have to say, the updates for an Etsy seller are promising. There may be a few things I’m not thrilled about but for the most part, I love the streamlined, blog-like look to the new layout.

I suggest making changes now to get your shop ready for the new Etsy shop homepage. Shop owners can now play around and make changes to their shop before Etsy goes live with the changes on April 5th.
