CNBC Interview

 Yesterday morning I was interviewed LIVE on CNBC news channel! It was all very surreal and extremely scary, but also such an awesome experience. I spoke about how Etsy has helped my business grow, and about the new Etsy Wholesale program.


 On Monday I received an Etsy conversation asking if I'd like to be on CNBC for a news piece the following day. One of the best parts of being self-employed is being able to adapt when exciting things like this come up - so I of course accepted the invitation. The following morning I was so nervous. I didn't really know what to expect, and was even more worried as it was live! I sat in the green room for about half an hour, which was exciting in itself as it was right in the studio and I could see everything that was going on behind the scenes. Then all of a sudden I was being ushered into a seat, had a microphone clipped to my collar, and someone was counting down till we were live! Very surreal!


If you'd like to watch the (very short) clip of me speaking you can see it right here. Please ignore my ummms and ahhhhhs - I tried so hard not to do it, but found it almost impossible! Also ignore my weird cockney accent - I'm not from East London! Thanks to everyone who watched live and for all your super sweet comments on Facebook and Instagram - knowing you guys were watching and supporting made me less worried!
