I have to believe that 99% of the people saying that making a living = being creative and happy are either living with their parents, or living in a small apartment with 10 other people and no car, insurance, children or retirement account.
From what I read in the Forums, it seems that Etsy could help people make a living by advertising to bring them some buyers, rather than by having admitted school dropouts teach them business management. I run a very successful business, and I feel a lot of compassion for the sellers who want a strong venue rather than advice.
