From time to time I’m going to talk about what I’ve heard called as a Side Hustle.
My side hustle is my etsy shop Third Floor Yarn Works. It’s the second coming of my life on Etsy and is basically the reason I’ve started the I am Zoe Watson Mom Blog because I got so involved in the online community, but I wanted to keep my mommy ramblings and my crochet ramblings and business marketing separate.
A little bit about Etsy:
The site was launched in 2005 by iospace, a small company composed of Robert Kalin, Chris Maguire, and Haim Schoppik. The initial version had taken two and a half months to build. Later Jared Tarbell joined the team. Former NPR executive Maria Thomas joined as COO in 2008, was promoted to CEO and left Etsy in December 2009. Robert Kalin resumed his role as CEO from December 2009 until July 2011. Investors include Sean Meenan, Spencer and Judson Ain, Union Square Ventures, and founders of Flickr and Delicious.
Kalin said that he named the site Etsy because he “wanted a nonsense word because I wanted to build the brand from scratch. I was watching Fellini’s 8 ½ and writing down what I was hearing. In Italian, you say ‘etsi’ a lot. It means ‘oh, yes’ (actually it’s “eh, si”). And in Latin and French, it means ‘what if.'”
So…no matter if you think it says oh yes or what if… excuse me for a moment while I brag about my business.
I promise it’ll be painless and I won’t do it too often…
