Finding your passion in your work is a good thing, but it is often misunderstood. Even if you are living your passion at work, there are things you may not like or want to do. For some, it’s the bookkeeping; or the product sourcing; or listing; etc. If you find you’re doing the things you have a passion for, and leaving the rest for later, you are probably not experiencing the kind of success you deserve. It’s hard to find someone who absolutely loves doing it all, but successful entrepreneurs are those who push the envelope, even when it feels uncomfortable. Grow faster, make more money, and then you can hire help to do the things you don’t like to do.
Online sellers, are you in it for the money? Or just for the thrilling exhilaration you feel each time you make a sale? If you truly want to grow your business, the ka-ching on your cell phone can help. It’s both a reminder of a success and an alert to pack and ship. Add another flag to that ka-ching sound; maybe say to yourself, “I’ll list 10 more items tomorrow” or “I’m going to go thrifting twice this week” — whatever it takes for your bottom line to grow. Ka-ching!
