Over the course of my career, I’ve left the corporate world twice. The first time was in 2016 when I felt burned out from my job and needed to reassess what I really wanted to do. And the second was in 2020 when the pandemic put things into perspective for me. It made me realize that life is short and that I should be doing things I genuinely enjoyed and am passionate about. That included expanding my 7-year-old lifestyle website, Greta’s Junkyard, into an online shop! In addition, I focused on being a freelance writer, editor, and consultant.
Greta’s Junk Shop
And that was how my small business was born. I wanted to curate a number of quality and locally-made items under fashion, home, pets, and lifestyle—then sell them on Greta’s Junk Shop. I was lucky enough that my husband was very supportive of this. Because when I needed the capital to start it, he easily lent me money. I know not everyone has this privilege.
