One of the features that I love about Etsy is that it breaks down your page traffic so you can actually see where your viewers that turn ito your customers are from.
Here is today's report so far at 12:23 p.m EST
I asked the universe to expand my territory - REMOVE EVERYONE that's not supportive of TShalon Boutique - AND LOOK!!! I have customers in France, Russia & Australia
Those 237 orders may not be much to some but to me they're EVERYTHING!!! I take so much pride in EVERY item that I put out. All of them handcreated by me, all while working my full-time, HIGH paced stressful job (that I will forever be thankful for) & assisting with the care of my elderly parents, one of whom suffered a MASSIVE stroke 3 months ago.
No it's not upsetting at all that "friends" & "family" won't take a moment to even tap the share button.... it is however a REALITY CHECK!
These were the same individuals that didn't even pick up the phone and say a prayer for me during my own personal health crisis.
I wish them all well and I'll always love them... just from a DISTANCE.
TShalon Boutique being international is one of the universe's gifts to me... after the mountains of heartbreak & tears of 2018, I'm thankful for all of those as well. You'll have to experience REAL PAIN, REAL LOSS, REAL HURT & REAL DISAPPOINTMENT so when you start to win, even in the smallest of ways, you won't take it for granted 🦋
This is a post of me patting MYSELF on the back, speaking life into MYSELF and simply saying to MYSELF 🗣 YOU GOT THIS TERESE🦋
Consistency, perseverance, drive, determination are some of MY BEST QUALITIES! The smile & my good ❤ are the added bonuses🦋 .
