First I wanted to say I am so excited to launch my first eCourse! It has been such a labor of love over the past few months and all started because I did a post with tips for selling on Instagram in 2012. After that I was flooded with comments and emails asking for more info, specifically, more detailed help on getting started. Over the last few months I’ve put together this course that will walk you step by step from start to finish.

Instagram is a highly visual social media platform that, while not created for the purpose, makes a great place to sell. Whether you’re hoping to make a little extra holiday money selling preloved clothing from your closet or you want to start selling your handmade goods, in the How to Sell on Instagram eCourse I outline step-by-step how to get started.

Personally, I started selling on instagram several years ago. I had a lot of really nice clothes that I loved, but didn’t wear and didn’t want to sell for fifty cents at a yard sale. So I signed up for a new instagram account dedicated to selling and sold quite a bit of my clothing there for much, much more than I’d get locally. I even used Instagram as a platform to raise money for vet bills when my dog got very sick by selling off clothing and vintage items I had collected over the years. The support and community present on instagram is beyond amazing and if you use it right, it’s one of the best platforms for small-scale community selling.


Included in the course are 9 sections outlining the different steps to get started, downloads and my favorite tips and resources.

The eCourse is broken down into several sections:

  1. Intro + Why You Should Sell on Instagram
  2. Preparing to Sell
  3. Taking Photos That Help You Sell
  4. Posting Your Items
  5. Price & Shipping Calculation
  6. All About Paypal
  7. Packing & Shipping
  8. Marketing Your Instagram Shop
  9. FAQ, Tips & Resources


I also included some digital downloads to help you get started:

  • Sell on Instagram Checklist
  • Listing Planner Sheets
  • Several graphics you can use for your own instagram shop

I make sure to cover every aspect of selling on Instagram as well as a lot of tips to online selling in general from paypal to packing and shipping. Included is a video showing how I edit my product photos in less than 1 minute using my iPhone, how I measure clothing, exactly how to set up your Instagram profile so it’s eye catching and informative, how to send money requests and invoices in paypal and much, much more!

If you’re thinking about selling on instagram this eCourse will help walk you through the steps to get started quickly and with confidence!

Weekly Wishes // No. 12 + eCourse Launches Tomorrow!

Busy, busy weekend! Exhausting, but rewarding. It all started Thursday night when we loaded up all of my sisters stuff to move her from my parents to my house. We filled in the extra space in the truck with stuff my parents wanted to get rid of. Over a lifetime you collect a lot of stuff without even noticing or meaning to and I’m trying to help free them of it (with their permission!). This is why I’m so dedicated to simplifying and decluttering – to avoid a garage, attic and storage space full of stuff I don’t need or even remember I have. So on Friday my sister and I had a garage sale, Saturday Blaine joined in on the fun and we got rid of boxes and boxes! However, we still have a lot sitting around the house waiting to be sorted, sold or donated.

Saturday afternoon and Sunday we spent at Willow Springs International Raceway watching a drifting event. Drifting is so much fun to watch, even though it always makes me a little anxious. Crashing and spinning out into the dirt is very common, but it definitely makes it fun to watch. All in all a good weekend and I’m ready to get to work!


  1. Clean out guest room. Mostly done. Planning on getting the closet cleaned out this week.
  2. Finish eCourse. My goodness. This launches TOMORROW and I need to hustle to get it done!
  3. Closet purge. I’ve removed a lot from my closet and drawers, but I’m definitely not where I want to be yet.


  1. Launch eCourse!!! October 21st is the launch date and I’m so excited to get this out there! Check out some info on the ecourse below :)
  2. Sort through donations & stuff to sell Over the weekend we moved my sister in AND brought a box truck full of my parents stuff  over and had a yard sale. Still have some stuff to sell on craigslist and to sort through some to donate. Hoping to get the house back in order this week. The boxes and just scattered stuff all over the house is making it hard for me to focus on work!
  3. Take donation to the thrift store Once I sort through everything the goal is to get it donated this week so I don’t have donation boxes lingering around the house for weeks like I usually do.

Watching a lot of shows. Yikes. Right now I’m obsessed with Hart of Dixie on Netflix. I just finished up the new episodes of The Fosters and Switched at Birth. As for current TV I’m loving Parenthood, American Horror Story and desperately need to catch up on Sons of Anarchy. I also recently saw Gone Girl which I loved and Annabelle which I hid beneath my jacket 90% of the movie.

Reading a couple of books: The Slight Edge and Four of a Kind. I really am loving the Slight Edge and am about half way through it. I’m not far enough into Four of a Kind to have much of an opinion on it, but it was a random pick while I was browsing the aisles at the library a few days ago. I also checked out #Girlboss and am excited to read that as soon as I’ve finished with one of my current reads. I think two books at a time is my limit!

Listening to a few random stations on Spotify which I’m loving. For a while I was just finding my own songs, but I find that eventually I run out of songs to listen to and want something new. I’ve been listening to 90’s radio,

Feeling a little frustrated. Without ranting too much I work a lot of the day and then also do 95% of the cooking and cleaning. Meanwhile my sister and husband hardly pitch in yet get to reap the benefits of all my hard work while I’m overwhelmed and frustrated. I feel like I’m taking care of everyone and it drives me nuts, yet I don’t like to ask for help because I don’t want to nag. I’ve been working on coming to terms with this lately and just doing my best to accept it. It’s easier to do what needs to be done and accept that these things are obviously a personal priority, than get mad that no one else wants to help. I know this is such a normal part of life, feeling like you’re doing everything and everyone else is doing nothing, and I need to get over it. Any tips?

Eating too much Halloween candy! I was able to hold out for a long time, but a few days ago each of us in the house bought one bag of Halloween candy for us all to share. So I’ve been snacking on dumdums and caramel apple pops for the last few days. We don’t get many (any, really) trick or treaters so luckily I don’t have to have a stash.

Thinking about the future all the time lately. When will we be able to move to where we want to be? What is my career as a freelance designer going to look like in a year or to? Are we ever going to have kids or are we going to skip that chapter? We have a lot of plans that I hope come to life soon!

Preparing my ecourse! I’m going to spill the beans: it’s a “How to Sell on Instagram” ecourse. My post on how to sell on instagram is by far one of my most popular and I get a lot of questions on how to do certain things and for my advice. So I’ve been putting together an ecourse that covers every aspect of getting started selling on instagram whether it’s to make a little extra holiday money selling stuff you don’t need or if you want to start a business selling on instagram. I’m so excited for it to launch next week!

Excited for our anniversary trip! It’s about a week and a half away and we’re going to be headed to Morrow Bay for the week. I booked a sweet deal on groupon a few months ago and have been counting down the days ever since!

Loving the cool, fall weather! It seems our local area got the memo because I couldn’t go outside for more than a couple minutes without a jacket today! I guess it’s time for me to retire the flip flops and pull out the real shoes, boots and sweaters.
