Achieve Time Freedom With a Zazzle Store

Achieve Time Freedom With a Zazzle Store

For the past 5 years, I have earned a 6-figure income from Zazzle, providing me with financial freedom, but it is the time freedom, which comes with this online business, that makes me wealthy. It is especially appropriate to write about time freedom at this time of year, when the holidays are upon us and we stop to celebrate and enjoy the company of family and friends.

What if you could have time freedom all year long, not just during the holidays? What if you could choose when to work and for how long? More importantly, what would you do with your extra time when you do not need to work, because you are earning a passive online income through your Zazzle stores?

Creating and building your online Zazzle business does take a significant time investment when you first start out, but as your products become established and sell repeatedly, you can move more into a maintenance mode of a work flow. This allows for more free time for you, while your previous efforts continue to generate passive income.

What is Your Time Freedom?

The answer to this will be different for each of us, depending on our stages of life.

For me, there are many things that make my freedom of time so precious to me including:

  • Spending all the time I want with my children as they grow up
  • Traveling for extended periods of time with family
  • Taking care of my health and well being
  • Being there for family in need
  • Giving back to the community
  • Doing things which make me happy
  • Enjoying time with family and friends
  • Being in the moment and slowing down to enjoy the important things in life

I am sure your list looks very different than mine, but my list and yours would not be possible without the freedom of time.

Time Freedom is Not Just for Retirement

“Time is your most precious commodity and yet most of us live our lives as if we have all the time in the world.” – Robin Sharma

Many of us believe we can only begin to think about allowing ourselves time to do the things we love and really want to do when we retire. Until then, we have no choice but to trade our time for work to achieve financial freedom.

But what if you could have both time and financial freedom now?

I am not even close to retirement age, but I have achieved time freedom and financial freedom with my Zazzle stores for the past 5 years.

Time Freedom Allowed Me to Give Back to Help Others on Zazzle

For the past year, because of my freedom of time, I have been able to give back in a way that is fulfilling to me, while still earning 6-figures. I have focused more on helping others get started on Zazzle than working on my own Zazzle stores.

Here are just a few of the items my time freedom has allowed me to do:

Feedback from Beginners Zazzle Course

People love the course and I have even received a shout out from Zazzle in the public Zazzle forum. (see the first quote).

“Elke has a wonderful class! If you want to break in, she gives you a great knowledge base to be a successful designer in our marketplace! Give it a shot!”
from sbclarke (A Zazzle Employee) (ZAZZLE FORUM POST)
“I am finding the course very helpful…..After being overwhelmed by the choices here (on Zazzle), I now feel like I can make better decisions about choosing a niche and the products I put in it”
from NellieQ Designs
“Elke, I started the course today and LOVE it!  Thank you for all the hard work you have put into this.  I can’t wait to get all the way through it.  Learning so much already!”
from T. K. Goforth


Time Freedom to be with Family and Friends

One of the most precious things time freedom gives you is the ability to enjoy life in the moment with family and friends.

With my Zazzle income and freedom of time, I have the ability to take a month off at Christmas to celebrate and enjoy my family.

At this time, I would like to wish all of you a wonderful holiday and all the best for the New Year.

Most of all, I wish you the freedom of time and may 2017 be the year you achieve it.

  • Time freedom is more valuable than financial freedom

    Thanks for this. I have chronic health conditions and need to work in a way that offers me the most flexibility and time to rest. Having worked on my Etsy shop for many years, I’ll be shifting my focus in 2017 to build my Zazzle store. The sheer scope of products and nîches offers me options that I could never achieve with my Etsy shop. Zazzle also allows me to focus on my strength, which is designing stationery.

    Thanks Elke! You are an inspiration. I have a Zazzle store already but haven’t really made it to be my income generating store. I have a question. Is it important to create many Zazzle stores and make each a niche product to get effective results? Thanks a lot and I look forward to read your other amazing posts.

    Hi Jude
    Start with one store and use categories to divide your niches up. Then if one gets popular but does not fit in with your other categories you can make a new store with NEW products. I would never delete the ones from my old store if they have made a sale. If you really want to make the different niche stores at the beginning, be aware that you will have to put in a lot of work to get each store to be built up.
