Another Etsy store owner interview today : D . Wendy from Planner Chick designs tells us about herself and her store. So, let’s see what Wendy told me.
Hi Wendy! Thanks for agreeing to this interview. Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
Hi Joanna!Well, I have been married for 27 years to my childhood best friend and I have four grown children, all of whom work for me in my Etsy shop. I also have 2 adorable grandchildren. I was a stay at home mom for 15 years before I went to work as a nail tech. I left that career to run my Etsy shop full-time.
How and why did you start making stickers?
My husband and I have always been very entrepreneurial, opening and closing several businesses over the years; and my favorite part was always designing our logos, brochures, ads, etc. Everything to do with graphic design. And then when I discovered Erin Condren planners and the planner decorating world, I knew I had found my niche.
Excellent!! Can you tell me about what inspires you?
I’m inspired by small things. The beauty of nature, my grand baby reaching her arms out to me, breakfast on the porch on a beautiful morning. It’s an effort to always be present, but it’s a goal I strive to achieve.
Let’s talk a bit more about your store.What can someone find at your Etsy store? Do you have any favourite types of stickers?
I’ve always been a practical person, so my stickers are very functional, and I also offer a Sticker Book for compact storage of PCD stickers. My favorites are the monthly kits, because I just love everything to be color coordinated.
If you could turn back time to the day you opened your store, what advice would you give yourself? Any top tips?
I would tell myself, “You’re going to make mistakes. Just roll with it and do whatever it takes to make the customer happy.”
Now let’s move on to planning.
How do you plan?
I’m a plan-as-you-go type of person. 5 of the 6 people in my family have ADD, so we are very impulsive, so if I ever planned an entire week, it would be covered with “cancelled” stickers by the end of it! That being said, my goal is to one day plan a week in advance and actually complete it.
Connecting with you
Where can people find you?
Thanks so much for the interview Wendy!! I love using your stickers and will be sharing a plan with me post where I use your stickers in one of my following spread.
