6 months ago I introduced you to Nerdy Monsters. Let's see what Jennifer's been up to!

What does a typical day look like for you? 
 
 I work in an office during the day, so my 'Nerdy Monsters' time is always after 7pm. Each evening is different. Sometimes I'm sewing, jewelry making, taking product photos, listing items, blogging about new things in the shop, and on the extremely rare occasion...I'm packaging orders.

How do you take your caffeine? 
 
Coffee, Black

What do you know now that you wish you knew 6 months ago? 
 
Letting my shop just sit there is not going to make any sales happen. It takes work.

How has your shop grown in the past 6 months? 
 
My sales have doubled! (from 1 to 2..heh) I've made a few new products but sales are still hard to come by and it's difficult with such a limited amount of time to work on my shop each day. I have started to create and release a new item each month. (I'm doing this all year, 12 new items!) So I'm not giving up any time soon.

Where would you like to see your shop in the next 3 years? 
 
I would love to see my shop really take off and be successful. I don't think I've found my target demo yet, but I'm looking. I've taken little steps here and there but I think the time is coming to take some bigger riskier steps.
 
Thanks for coming and checking out what Jennifer's been up to!
