Now that the eBay Radio Party & Conference is over for another year, here’s some advice from those who were there: Don’t miss next year’s event! You’ll come home re-energized, re-inspired and armed with brand-new information for making your business on eBay the very best it can be. May thanks to all who attended…we miss you already!
We’re on day 2 of this year’s eBay Radio Party & Conference, and here’s my best advice both to those here with us at the event and those listening in from home: Pace yourself. Eat right, stay hydrated and get enough sleep to keep your body, mind and spirit energized and ready to cope with the demands of your entrepreneurial lifestyle from one day to the next. Get some exercise, too, whether it’s walking the halls of Bally’s Convention Center and the streets of Las Vegas or just enjoying a brisk stroll through your neighborhood. You’ll feel better and also get more accomplished.
Vegas Babeeeee! Yes, it’s time again for our annual eBay Radio Party & Conference. Here is the most important tip I can give you when attending any conference. To gain results from the networking aspect of the event, please know that it’s all about attitude! Year after year, we have seen eBay sellers come to our event with an attitude of “We are all in this together.” Only with this ambiance in the room can we learn and grow from the networking part of the experience. Give some, get some. Be willing to offer tips to newbies, and exchange ideas with veterans and experts. But most of all, remember that we are all working toward the same outcome, and that is to grow and improve our businesses on eBay. And remember…If it ain’t fun, we ain’t doin’ it!
Lots of research is done on the isolation encountered by at-home business owners. Women in particular miss camaraderie with co-workers. Extroverts can suffer more than most from lack of people with whom to interact. You may feel you have no one with whome to share your problems. Even when you go to lunch with old work friends who talk about their boss, they can’t truly relate to your entrepreneurial challenges. So what to do? Join or start a local eBay sellers group. Go to ecommerce conferences (such as the eBay Radio Party & Conference) to meet and mingle with others in the same situation. Attend seminars and webinars to hear feedback from others who are in the same boat. Remember, online groups are great — but they don’t take the place of face-to-face interaction.
