Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #211
Lee's Tips,Seller Resources
We’re almost finished with our remodeling. The contractor keeps his tools and stuff in our eBay sales room, so we haven’t been listing. But I sold 2 items over the weekend; now I need to list a couple more. Here are 3 quick ways to get your business butt in gear after a lull.
- First, refresh your work area, whether you actually move your desk, or just clean it up and put a vase of flowers on it.
- Next, it’s OK to start slowly, but have a plan. Write your goal — and note your progress towards it — on a whiteboard mounted someplace where you can’t help but see it. For example: 3 listings per day for your first week back. Then challenge yourself later to up the count.
- Finally, do one thing every day to grow your business, whether it’s as simple as listing just one more item or a major project like implementing a new inventory control system.
