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.

  1. First, refresh your work area, whether you actually move your desk, or just clean it up and put a vase of flowers on it.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
