I was hoping some of you might share your stories about how you got started with your businesses.

I'm finding myself so stuck! I'm a pretty crafty person- and have tried so many different things (beading, sewing, knitting, jewelry, etc.) and I know that the quality of my work is good. I love looking at other people's Etsys and I can't help but think "if they can do it why can't I!?" But for some reason I just can't get started! I've wanted to have my own Etsy for years and years and I get so many ideas for Etsy shops- but once I start making things to put in it I stop - decide it was a bad idea and then I'm thinking up a new idea! Well this has gone on for so long that I've realized the problem might not be with the ideas - to make it worse it started out as something fun to do but now its just stressful. I know! Weird right?

It would be really helpful if anyone else has had a similar experience - and could share how they got started. Thanks!
