Milestones Make Monday Better

I have a co-worker, who I swear, HAS to be injecting himself with some kind of adrenalin before he comes to work. It’s 7 a.m. on a Monday morning. The rest rest of us are reluctantly forcing our eyes open while downing cup after cup of coffee in an attempt to awaken. This dude walks in, and he always has a huge chipper smile and attitude as he practically RUNS to his desk and wishes everyone a booming, “GOOD MORNING!!!!

“Good morning,” I mumble back, thinking to myself, it’s MONDAY, how can that possible be a GOOD THING?

However, on this particular Monday, I have a reason to be a little more chipper than usual. Yes, the weekend went by too fast (as weekends tend to do), but something exciting happened over it.

I reached TWO milestone marks in two of my Etsy shops.

In my MegansBeadedDesigns shop, I reached 150 sales. To celebrate I’m offering coupon code BIG150 for 20% off! (Good for the rest of this week.)

In my Glamour365 shop, I reached my first 100 sales. (A pretty big #$%^ing deal, in the words of Vice President Joe Biden.) To celebrate I’m offering coupon code BIG100 for 30% off. (Also good for the rest of this week.)

Hooray for progress!

    Hey there, Congrats on your milestones. Two at once. Way to go!! Your description of your lively, happy coworker reminds me of someone I used to worked with. Once when he was doing his Monday mornings rounds, and he was heading my way, I looked up at him and growled. I swear, he didn’t come near me for something like six months after that ;)

    Awesome! I am working hard to trying to acheive those goals as well. Have a long way to go on etsy although I probably have done that many outside of etsy. It is always inspiring to hear about other shops that are making it happen!

      It turned out to be a lot more work than I thought it would be! But worth it in the end! :-)
