From 0 to 600 sales on Etsy: Why Daisy from Little Buddha took her established brand BACK to Etsy to create another form of passive income

Daisy is the owner of Little Buddha, an organic bath and body small business, who decided to take her established brand and sell her products on Etsy to create another stream of passive income.

A few years prior, she was hesitant about Etsy, gave it a quick shot, and ended up calling it quits – she heard from so many other small business owners that Etsy’s fees are too high and the market is too saturated. When she initially put her products up on Etsy a few years ago, she didn't get any sales, so she closed her account and focused on sending people to her direct website.

A few years later, her business became very established. A beautiful website done by a professional, amazing professional photos, incredible professional branding. And when we started to work together, we decided it was time to give Etsy another try.

A lot of small business owners might be thinking “Wait, what? She had such an established brand with her own website and now she’s going BACK to Etsy… isn’t that backwards?”

But we had a vision in mind: to create another form of passive income for her business.

Today, she has 600 sales on Etsy from customers who may not have otherwise found her. She has over 200 5-star reviews. She sold $10,000 of products in January (the slowest month of the year!) and over HALF of that came directly from Etsy. At the time of this recording, she was going on a 3 consecutive month streak with sales on Etsy every single day except for ONE day… and that streak was from end of November to the end of February, encompassing 2 of the SLOWEST months of the year for online sales.

And now, she has her weekends back to spend time in nature, travel, and spend time with family...due to the passive income that Etsy provides her and her business

But.... it wasn't always that easy and it didn't happen instantly. Tune in to listen to Daisy's story of what it truly took for her to reach these results.

EP 103: Growing a coaching business with James Wedmore

The latest reviews from our loyal listeners:


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.
