As an eBay seller, you deal with an ever-evolving marketplace. Keeping up with it is essential to your success. One way to do so is to attend seminars, workshops and conferences — like the eBay Radio Party & Conference — or, this week, eBay’s own We Are Twenty Seller Summit & 20th Anniversary Celebration. At We Are Twenty, you’ll be brought up to date on all of eBay’s current best practices as well as the new initiatives contained in the upcoming Fall Seller Update. You’ll hear from eBay executives, who will share their vision for eBay going forward, and you’ll have the opportunity to talk with eBay team members face to face, up close and personal. To top it all off, you’ll get to network with your fellow sellers while celebrating your own success as part of 20 years of eBay. As an eBay seller, it just doesn’t get any better than that. Enjoy!
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 3 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: Don’t try to implement absolutely everything you’ve learned right away. Test, review and revise your strategies to suit your business on eBay. But don’t procrastinate, either. Strike while the iron is hot, and strive to find the balance that works for you.
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.
As an entrepreneur, it’s easy to become caught up in the day-to-day details of running your business. But don’t become so busy that you don’t have time for professional development. Sign up for that webinar; go to that conference; keep up with those blog posts, Facebook pages and other valuable content. That investment in yourself will pay off.
Definition of humility: modest opinion or estimate of one’s own importance, rank, etc. Lack of humility, above all else, holds people back when trying to grow a business. It takes humility to learn from others, because first you must admit you don’t know it all. We need to watch others who are successful and learn from them. Some of us are too embarrassed to ask for advice or help, because we’re afraid it will make us look weak. Your success depends on ridding yourself of this notion. Reading books that others have written about a given subject is a good start, and don’t be afraid to ask questions on forums and boards and/or at networking events. You’ll be the richer for it.
