Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #233

15 Aug 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

Being a quitter surely does not lead to success, so choose your career wisely. My grandfather owned a small farm in North Carolina, where he fed corn to chickens and other farm animals. When I visited, I shelled the corn using a hand-operated device. One time, after about half an hour, I said I was tired. My grandfather replied, “The animals never get tired of eating; in fact, they will die if you quit.”

Later in life, I worked at a Fruit of the Loom plant and saw the women who worked all day long at machines that sewed ladies’ stockings. I decided on that day that I didn’t want to spend my life doing repetitive work. Instead, I became an entrepreneur.

One great thing about having your own business is that things change all the time, sometimes in a minute. True entrepreneurs embrace the changes and think of them as business refinement opportunities. And if you even think about quitting, remember the corn-shelling story.

Advice for the Entrepreneur – Lee’s Tip #227

27 Jun 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

One thing I’ve learned in 14 years of producing eBay Radio is that eBay sellers come in all types. By and large, a listing contains no socio-economic markers. I can’t tell where you were raised merely by looking at your listing, nor can I tell your level of education.

However, there is one common thread that runs through the heart and soul of an entrepreneur, and that is determination. Entrepreneurs never give up, and it’s what separates the successful from the rest. The synonyms for determination are resolution, resolve, willpower, strength of character and single-mindedness. Now, feel good about yourself.

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #153

13 Oct 2015 Uncategorized

As anyone who’s ever quit their day job to become an entrepreneur knows, leaving the safety net of working for someone else in favor of being your own boss is a big step into unknown territory. Even if you’ve made a gradual transition by starting out as a part-time entrepreneur, now you’re entirely on your own, sailing into as-yet-uncharted waters. Like the maps of old used to say at the limits of the known world, “Beyond be dragons.” To be successful as an entrepreneur, you’ve got to confront those dragons of the unknown…and in facing them, slay them. Only by confronting the unknown can you map new territory in your entrepreneurial journey. To do so requires conquering the dragons of fear, uncertainty and self-doubt. You may even find yourself second-guessing your decision to strike out on your own rather than staying safely (but boringly) employed by someone other than yourself. Stay the course. Like Columbus, you will discover a new world of strength and abilities within yourself as you face and overcome each challenge.

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #127

While binge-watching house-hunter shows, I noticed that most lookie-loos say things like, “Ick…I can’t stand those white cabinets!” or “That bathtub is a deal breaker!” or the ever-popular “No granite countertops in the kitchen? Why even look at the rest of the house?” Then you see the occasional one who says, “I don’t like that tub, but we can make this work” or “The white cabinets are icky, but with a little sanding and painting, we’ll have what we want.” That, my friend, is the difference between a muggle and an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs are solution oriented. Try it for a week: Stop concentrating on the first “ick”, and say instead, “What can I do to make this work?” You’ll come up with alternatives. Try it. You’ll like the results.
