Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #244

14 Nov 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

How many hours a week do you work on your business? We now know that the law of diminishing returns kicks in if you work too many hours. It turns out the traditional 40-hour work week is the bingo!

After the industrial revolution, labor-based companies began experimenting with reduced working hours, which back then were usually more than 10 a day. In 1914, Henry Ford cut his employees’ workday to eight hours. It increased productivity and worker well-being so much that it became a national mandate soon after that as part of the New Deal.

So for your own well-being and that of your business, try for 40 hours, but work no more than 50 hours per week.

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #243

07 Nov 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

The portability of today’s online business makes entrepreneurship more liberating than ever. Couples RV across the country, product sourcing and selling on eBay all the way. Many couples travel or move overseas, and their businesses on eBay don’t miss a beat.

Then there’s the coffee shop crowd and the sit-on-a-rock-on-the-beach-and-list gang. To discover a taste of this liberation, move around your house; bring a laptop outside on the porch or sunroom for an hour during the day; try the wi-fi at the nearest coffee shop. The world is your office. It will refresh your senses and get you out of a rut.

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #242

31 Oct 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

You may be thinking about hiring your spouse or other family member to work for your business, and that can be a great idea. However, you should know that there are a lot of landmines. Most importantly, is this person suited for the job?

Family members may not have a knack for photographing your items, or packing and shipping, or maybe they don’t feel fulfilled. Suggest a 30- to 90-day trial period, just in case. And be sure to set a hierarchy. Someone needs to be in charge of final decisions.

It can be rewarding to run a family business, or it can be a big old waste of time — or worse — trying to get out of it. Tread carefully.
