Tuning-In Confirmation Baby!

My first camera-sell on October 7, 2011

I have a story to tell...

Over a year ago I discovered a woman, Susannah Conway. Her eCourse, Unravelling, opened up some brewing passions in me. I discovered that I had a LOVE for vintage cameras.

During that time I was making a connection with another blogger, Sara. She loved my photos so much that she mentioned that I should sell my photos on Etsy. I thanked her and put that idea in a mental pocket.

Here's where the "tuning-in" happened... One day, I was doing my usual stroll through a Salvation Army thrift store and I saw this camera,

In an instant, I had a tiny little whisper of intuition, God, Spirit say, "You could sell cameras on Etsy." I purchased this camera and two other ones as well, that day.

I'm telling you this story because it's an eCourse assignment. I was asked to remember and write about when I felt intuition had paid off. I'm pretty sure that listening and doing what I heard has paid off. Here's my confirmation that I tuned in and was right to move forward.

1) Yesterday, I had my 50th sale.
2) I've made new connections online because of my shop.
3) I've furthered my knowledge of photography and have been approached about teaching.
4) and finally...

Today, the day I just so happened to sit down and do this story/homework, marks my shop's 1 year anniversary...coincidence? NO, that's confirmation baby!!
