Have you ever wondered how to start an Etsy printables shop? Wonder no more because in this episode we're diving into how to create a new revenue stream for your business with digital downloads. https://giftbizunwrapped.com/episodes/thesellingstaircase (Selling) printables and digital downloads is one business model that is very compatible with the life of a busy mom or fitting in a side gig. If you haven't started your business yet, or are looking to expand on what you're currently selling but not add to your backend shipping tasks, this may be the perfect option for you. It's enticing, that's for sure. Julie's Etsy shop, The Swag Element, started as a side hustle and now earns her $1,000+ per month selling printable products for bachelorette parties, useful templates, and other digital downloads. Success speaks volumes and these Etsy results prompted another opportunity. While on maternity leave, Julie co-founded Gold City Ventures, which is a company that helps women start side hustles like hers selling printables and digital downloads on Etsy. Over 3,000 students have taken Julie's E-Printables course with her top student earning over $150,000 on Etsy after starting the shop from scratch. How To Start An Etsy Printables Shop A digital download or printable is a digital file you make on your computer and your customer can download from Etsy without further action from you. If you use Canva's graphics or fonts, make sure you only use the ones that are okay for commercial use.

In this episode of Ventures, my guest Aryeh Sheinbein (https://www.instagram.com/aryehthebusinessman) and I discuss a unique approach to financial management for entrepreneurs in light of a rapidly changing tech landscape. While we talk often about venture building and investing on this show, we haven't yet - until this episode - helped guide entrepreneurs about what to do personally once money is being made. There are a ton of wealth managers out there who bombard entrepreneurs with inbound requests to meet - especially once signs of success start happening - so we talk about how to prepare for that event and plan to navigate the attention. Overall, entrepreneurs today have many new avenues for generating income, and my conversation with Aryeh - who approaches wealth management differently as an entrepreneur/investor himself - is a refreshing perspective on how to approach the topic and mindset.Visit https://satchel.works/@wclittle/ventures-episode-72 for detailed notes and links to resources (videos, articles, etc…) mentioned. You can watch this episode via video here. 2:14 - Tee-up for why this episode's discussion is important and relevant for Ventures.2:41 - Aryeh's introduction and background (investment banking, VC, entrepreneur, wealth advisor)5:50 - People are finding creative ways in Web3 today. In what kinds of markets did Aryeh see entrepreneurs making money the last couple of decades?8:40 - Now a “decacorn” is the new target ($10B valuation company)9:33 - A bit of Will's story, learning to code, building web1 and web2 ventures. On the topic of side business, new tricks to generate wealth, etc… what should entrepreneurs think about as their ventures start becoming successful financially?16:20 - Will's story of his son asking him “Hey Dad, what should I invest in?” // How would Aryeh answer this question for today's youth? 24:55 - “The thing to do is to just do the thing”25:30 - Discussion about how to think about investing in ourselves as entrepreneurs? “At what point do I quit the day job?”33:47 - Educating the audience on what they are going to hit up with regarding wealth managers talking to seemingly successful entrepreneurs. 40:29 - The pitch for solutionadvisory.com, and finding Aryeh online https://www.instagram.com/aryehthebusinessman 41:30 - Parting words of wisdom :) If you have time on your side, you can make mistakes. You should also understand your big picture. In a perfect world, where would you want to be and what would you want to be doing? You can then develop a plan to get there.

In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle/) take about ~10min to talk about my perspective on why Web 3 (i.e. decentralized ownership, blockchains, Metaverse, and the Semantic Web) will dramatically change the landscape for entrepreneurship in the future. Based on feedback from the first year of this podcast, I share a bit about my story; i.e. how building and *owning* my own Web 2.0 ventures in the 2000s is analogous to what many entrepreneurs are doing right now in Web 3 communities. New communities and networks are being created rapidly, and the markets that our children will participate in the future are almost impossible for us to conceive of today.FYI, you can watch this episode via video here. For more background on my writings and podcasts on Web 3, see https://satchel.works/@wclittle/blockchains

CEO and Co-Founder Jesse Randall is a fintech startup executive and venture capitalist helping to usher in the new era of generational wealth creation for everyday people. His roots in small farm life in rural America as part of a very large family gave him a unique foundational work ethic and view of the world. He has come to understand that he would rather imagine the world as it can become rather than settle for the shortcomings that surround us everywhere. Anything is possible with the right mindset, people, and resources at hand. Outside of work, he enjoys endurance sports such as Ironman races, cycling, and marathons, and wouldn't trade his life with his sweetheart and five children for any amount of treasure. Sweater is hell-bent on leveling the playing field and reinventing venture capital to reach its maximum potential. That starts by creating a venture capital fund that anyone can invest in. Sweater's vision is to pool money from millions of regular people into a world-class venture fund, wisely deploying that capital into startups that shape the world we live in. Every founder should be able to build their vision, and every person should be able to support the startups that create the next generation of influence and wealth.

There are no fewer than 160 Nobel Prize winners in the region (second only to the US) and ranks fourth in the world on the number of patent applications its innovators file each year.

When it comes to the world of venture capital, it can feel eerily similar to Squid Game, though not nearly as gory (thank goodness). Thousands of brands competing for the resources and mentorship they need to take their product to new heights, some getting better outcomes than others. So, how can today's founders find the most successful venture partner to help their brand grow? How can they rise above the noise, grab attention, and win support? We thought, "Who better to ask than a venture capitalist?" That's why we sat down with Jay Hirsh, founder of Break Trail Ventures, an early-stage venture fund based in Boulder, CO and Columbus, OH. In this episode, he gives us the ultimate crash course on finding and attracting the right venture partner for your unique brand, red flags to avoid, and his learn-first approach for success in venture and life.
