Why this business was started
We purchased this company on Shopify Exchange about a year ago looking for a good starter store. It was relatively new but had still had decent sales and was an industry we had passion in. It was perfect for us to gain experience while still making a profit. We were active for a year with the business and did well. Just did not have the time to create new designs and keep up with advertising and social media.
The reason of selling this business
We don't have the time anymore that it needs to continue to grow. We've started a new store and have busier personal lives that don't allow us to focus on this store anymore. We stopped advertising and spending time on this store in September 2018 other than a Black Friday Holiday ad. Want to spend more time on thing we are more passionate about. I recently reran a black Friday holiday add for 2019 just to show that it is still sells well with time and effort.
What's involved in running this business
It's pretty simple to run and most of the time is spent setting up ads and being active on social media. The business uses a Print on demand store and most of the fulfillment is automated other than paying for orders. There's no inventory and shipping is all done by POD company. Replying to emails and customer service takes up an hour or so a week.

How to grow this business
I would look to add new products and designs, this is something that fell off when we got busy. We don't have a lot of ad/marketing experience, I think hiring an outside source or taking a class to learn more would greatly benefit us. Our ads were effective but I think they could be even better.
Skills to have
Its relatively simple, the print on demand app is easy to use and you will have it figured out quickly. Understanding of Facebook ads and Instagram would be beneficial.
