Getting Ready for the New Year


Getting Ready for the New Year - Find Part 2 here and Part 3 here.

Here are 5 tips to help you have a successful New Year.

1) Be organized. When you know where things are and have a somewhat clean space to work in, you'll be more likely to get things done.

2) Have a written plan. When you keep it all in your head, chances are you will forget something. It will also take more time to get going. Write out your plan the night before (if you just do a daily plan) or on Sunday (if you do a weekly plan). You will get more accomplished this way.

3) Get rid of distractions. Turn off the phone, the notifications, FB, email, the tv, etc. When you are focused on your task, more is accomplished.

4) Let perfectionism go. You don't have to be perfect on each and every product. They need to be professional. They don't need to include everything under the sun. At some point, you just need to let go, stop adding to the product, and post it. You can't sell it if it isn't in your store.

5) Be productive, not just busy. Being productive - engaging in the production of goods or other important activities to move you store forward. Being busy - doing things that don't necessarily matter, the unimportant tasks that don't move the needle. I can spend my day reading FB posts, reading emails, posting quotes on IG, reading the Forums, etc., but it doesn't get a product completed or pins created.
