  1. I could sure use some new business cards. My old ones have a website listed on them that never actually got started. Nothing looks more professional than dead link! :)

    Hmm....I probably struggle the most with motivation. Getting new items out there as much as I should is a real issue for me.

  2. Hey Van! Great giveaway opportunity. Business cards are so important, and I always find myself forgetting to keep some with me at all times. I need to start keeping some in every purse and wallet.

    I'd say that my biggest struggle as a business owner is staying on task. It is so easy for me to start working on something like listing or even organizing my workspace and then get distracted by Twitter, Facebook, friends, family, text messages, etc.

    Take care!

  3. I'm already following Thriftcore on Facebook.

  4. I need new business cards too, I have ones that are a membership into my club, but I'd like one to promote both of my websites

  5. my biggest obstacle is actually getting started! i have my etsy shop, a pile of product to photograph for it, but just can't get motivated to do it, probably because i'm afraid of failing. maybe if i had some business cards to give out i would get my butt into gear!

  6. My biggest challenge as an artist/writer is staying motivated. It's so easy to get discouraged! Thanks for the giveaway, Van

  9. I probably have the most trouble buying things that I think are pretty and then never listing them, but just keeping them in a pile in my living room. So organization would definitely be my weak point.

  10. This is great timing. I literally have 1 business card left :)

    My constant struggle is taming the inventory and clutter. I really really really need to be better about listing with in 24 hours of bringing an item into the house.

  11. We both work full time, and we're trying to run our reselling business/blog on the side, so I think we struggle most with just finding the time to do everything we want to improve our business/blog. For example, we've been talking about getting business cards and labels for our packaging for a long time, but we've never actually found the time/energy to do it! Some free business cards would be awesome to fill that hole, and then maybe we'll actually be able to tackle all our draft listings on Etsy!

  12. And now I follow you on Twitter!

  13. And I tweeted about this giveaway!

  14. And I liked you on Facebook!

  15. And I stumbled this post! So much social networking... :)

  16. I am a follower! I struggle most with getting items cleaned/photographed and listed. It's just so much more fun to go buy more goodies!!

  17. I struggle with believing someone would actually be interested in my product. It's a little scary putting yourself out there.

  18. I struggle with time. Time to list, time to pack, time to photograph, time to buy.
    I have a full time job, and two households to run. It seems my lunch hours and late night time is dedicated to business, and the rest of the day it takes a back seat to everything else I have to do.

  19. What I struggle with most as a business owner is the tax man! Between payroll taxes, state tax, L&I, sales tax, excise tax, and getting it all filed and paid on various timelines, I sometimes wonder whether it's worth it at all! (OK, it is.) :)

  25. Awesome post...really impressive cards..!!!!!!

  26. You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I believe
    I might never understand. It seems too complicated and very wide for me.
    I'm having a look ahead for your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
