Instructor: Kayla Vandean

Kayla Vandean is a Mother to 2 busy toddlers and an Etsy shop owner. She first opened her Etsy shop in 2012 using it to supplement her lifestyle by selling vintage clothing. In the spring of 2020 she rebranded and began selling handmade wood products on Etsy. Originally her goal was to pay for her family vacations however she quickly realized that there was much more opportunity on Etsy and she needed to think bigger! Much bigger!! In 6 short months of focusing on her business part time, MonkeyTables has grown to achieve top 25% of sellers.

With 10 years of service, sales & marketing experience working for the NHL, she obtained some incredibly valuable skills.  Working closely with fans, tight deadlines and promoting hundreds of different events annually she have been able to transfer these skills into an exceptionally successful Etsy shop in a very short amount of time.

Kayla will help you turn your side hustle into a primary source of income.  In addition, she will teach you how to avoid some expensive mistakes that were learned the hard way!
