Passionate about inspiring others
In case we haven't met yet - hey there, friend!
My name is Mandy - best known for my start on TikTok providing digital art video tips! I’m a busy midwest boy mama, former HR Director turned full-time handmade small business entrepreneur, and owner of print on demand shops that reached 6 figures in the first 10 months - all while not having to touch a single product or ship anything out to a customer.
You might be surprised to learn that I actually run a 6-figure handmade natural skincare business full-time. I started it as a side-hustle back in 2017 and turned it full-time after some serious pandemic HR burnout in 2021. In spring of 2022, I decided I needed a creative outlet outside of my handmade business, but it needed to be something I could work on in pockets of time around my already-full schedule as a business owner, wife, and mom. Enter: print on demand.
Queen of the entrepreneurial spirit
Ask anyone in my family and they'll tell you that my mind doesn't turn off. If you look up the definition of "multi-passionate", you'll probably see my face. I've done everything from cupcake boss baker to tie-dye apparel extraordinaire, but they all had one thing in common: I was pretty good at all of it, but passionate about none of it. At least not enough to sustain it.
And through years of entrepreneurial journeys, I have learned a very important lesson:
If you hate doing something, you'll never be passionate about its success.
Freedom from fulfillment
For me, my passion is in creation. Design. Let me design a label, or a business card, or a t-shirt, or a website. Anything. I love the creation side of running a business. Ask me to actually package it up or deal with shipping.... Meh. I don't mind it, but I get bored with the repetition, and quite frankly the cost of maintaining inventory (for designs that may not sell) is astronomical.
That is why I get so freaking excited about print on demand and the opportunity that it opens up to other creative entrepreneurs that have always dreamed of running their own business but may not have the time, resources, or space to run a traditional product-based business.
I love helping others find that same passion and excitement in building a successful business in just pockets of time without having to ever buy inventory or ship a product.
I have a passion for building successful e-commerce businesses and simplifying the Etsy print on demand process so that anyone can feel empowered to start their own journey. I'm so glad you're here!
