EP 11: Making money fast or making a machine for consistent sales - which is better for your business?

Jun 21, 2022
Making money fast or making a machine for consistent sales - which is better for your business?

Did you know that 30% of small businesses don't make it past their second year? In my second year of Plant Based Beauty, I almost became a figure in that statistic when I was started to ask myself "when is it time to throw in the towel and go back to a full time corporate job?"

The truth is, most struggling small business owners aren't growing because they are focusing on making money fast…but instead of focusing on making money FAST, what we REALLY want is to make money CONSISTENTLY and with less effort over time.

And the ONLY way to do that is by building your business like a machine that brings in consistent sales for you that you can rely on.


  • Why focusing on fast money leads to burnout, exhaustion and inconsistent sales
  • How you can go from focusing on making money fast… to building a machine that makes money CONSISTENTLY and with less effort over time
  • How Etsy can EASILY become one of the foundations of your machine to create consistent passive income

Clear & effective communication!

Great podcast from Monica Little! She talks about the power of integrity, changing your mind-set to get stuff done and being accountable (both personally & professionally). The podcast is geared towards small business owners, but really so much of what Monica explains can be applied to various parts of anyone's life. She articulates so accurately many of the thoughts I have about the challenges of being a small business owner. It's reassuring & comforting to hear Monica break it all down in a comprehensive way in order to overcome the struggles. My favorite take-aways were how she explained that believing in yourself = FREEDOM and "how you do one thing is how you do everything".

I’m Learning So Much!

I love listening to Monica’s podcast as a handmade small business owner! She offers so many tangible tips within her episodes that have helped me to believe in and grow my small business. Episode 2 was very helpful as she discusses the power of integrity and using a habit tracker. I loved this concept and will begin to use one. I can relate to so many of the stories she tells about running her own handmade business. Thank you Monica for all of these episodes! I cannot wait to listen to more.
