World Domination

Sara Stroman, Etsy's Seller Education Intern, just came back from the 2012 World Domination Conference bursting with game-changing advice and insight about her experience. She shares her lessons learned: "Maybe your local Etsy team is looking for sellers for a market and you can sign up. Or maybe a friend of yours wants you to take a class with them and while it isn't your cup of tea, you say yes, anyway. These steps will create traction that can change the entire course of your life. Who knows who you'll meet, what you'll become obsessed with, and potentially include in your work that can become an asset to creating the kind of life you want to live." Read more.

Inspired by the Mosaic Man

Jim Power, also known as the Mosaic Man, has been adorning the lampposts of New York City's East Village for almost thirty years. After giving up his union carpenter job, Jim began beautifying the once rough-and-tumble neighborhood, supported solely by the donations he received on the streets. His work eventually came to be known as the Mosaic Trail - eighty lampposts covered in mosaics representing significant areas and people of the East Village. Watch the video and hear how Jim's passion for his work helped him build community and live the life he wanted to live. Watch now.
