Did you miss last week's Holiday Boot Camp newsletter? You still have time to catch up — view it here!
This week's Boot Camp is all about offering the right product this holiday season. Take a step back and follow my directions below to set up your shop for success. 

Every year we notice custom items on Etsy (or items personalized in some way) are a big hit with holiday shoppers! This week, my goal was to publish Etsy's Guide to Custom Work to help you make this work for your own shop.  

Sell vintage items? This tip's for you, too! Think about offering personalized wrapping or gift tags.

I'm sure you have something on your Etsy shop to do list that you've been putting off. Perhaps it's a new item you've been meaning to photograph, a new avatar or finally sitting down and analyzing your tags. Let me know what this task is in this Etsy forum thread and let's make sure you get it done! 

Six Success Secrets
I asked creative life coach Michelle Ward to share six success secrets with us. Ponder these secrets and think about how you can embrace each secret she shares in your creative life. But don't cheat! Read Michelle's blog post first.

Boot Camp Quotes

"I've wanted to expand my paper goods. I just don't seem to have the time or energy to start. Or am I scared of failure? I recommend a great post, The Success of Failure which addresses this very question. Good timing for me, or what I now call synchronicity!"
- Storybeader's Boot Camp Blog Post
"The buddy system sure does work! After looking at my partner's work intensively, I found it easier to make decisions about the direction I want to be headed in." - zuzu2u in last week's Etsy forum thread
