    Etsy coaches - what to look out for and how not to get ripped off

    Crickets to Cha-Chings Episode 017

    My beef about Etsy coaches

    Today I want to talk to you about a pet peeve of mine.

     There is so much bad information on the internet. Like seriously so much. And it's only getting worse and it's only going to continue to get worse because it's the internet and there are basically no barriers to entry and no real qualifications that are required to  declare yourself an expert and try and build a following of people who are following your expertise. Because it's the internet, so it is what it is. 

    But I want to equip you as a consumer and as someone who I'm assuming wants to learn about Etsy because you're listening to this podcast, to have that kind of critical eye and what to watch out for with people that are giving advice so that you're not totally led down this path that is not going to get you anywhere and could actually end up costing you a lot of money because it's really bad advice or they are very unqualified to be giving advice at all. 

    I am not against paid programs — I have a program which I LOVE doing because it allows me to have the one on one time with students and move their business forward toward their dreams, and invested in several paid programs which have been amazing.

    Just make sure if you are signing up for a program, the person:

    • is currently doing what they are teaching about (currently has an Etsy shop)

    • has gotten to where you want to be/are ahead of you in business

    • are an expert in the topic they are teaching about

    • is trustworthy and transparent about running a business

    • has gotten the results for themselves that they are teaching you to get

    • offers valuable free information and doesn’t require you to pay for every tidbit of learning
