Is today one of those days? Things aren’t going right? It doesn’t need to be.
Selling on Etsy can be a challenging experience. But, with the right mindset and perception you can ensure it’s always a positive one!
Here are 5 tips to keep in mind for any Etsy Seller. You may notice some changes!
1. Change your mindset & prioritise
We have heard it all before “I didn’t have enough time”. If you catch yourself saying this , take stock for a moment and take a look at your priorities. The reality is you lacked a sense of urgency to complete the task and to get it done on time, you were “busy doing other things”.
People act in line with their highest values.
Take some time to reflect on yours and ensure the work you are doing is inline with those values. Then, prioritise to ensure you are living in accordance with them.
This will not only make you more productive, but more fulfilled in your every day life.
2. Listen to your body
Some days you just won’t be able to bring your A game. If that is the case, maybe it’s a sign to take a break have a rest and refocus your energy. It is easy to burn out, take some time to do other things. Creativity is a funny beast, which requires you to constantly think in new ways, so when you are not feeling it, try something new! Go somewhere you have never been before, eat something new, create something you have never tried to make before! You get the picture :)
Let yourself experience new things and your brain will be inspired in new ways!
3. Getting to the summit takes many steps.
As does getting your business to where you want it to be. Break it down, your business is made up of tasks that need to be completed. Instead of focusing on the bigger picture or the end goal, break down everything you need to do and then channel your effort to complete those small tasks. The rest will take care of itself & before you know it you will be standing on the summit.
4. Stop thinking and Start doing.
You cannot think things into existence but you can act on those thoughts to bring them to existence.
Taking action will always bring in results.
There is no such thing as a perfect idea, so stop seeking perfection. Stop finding reasons not to take action. It’s like a chain of domino’s, taking action on one imperfect idea will lead you to another idea, which may end up being perfect!
5. Remember your reason.
You started an Etsy store for a reason, remember that reason. This is your driving factor.
Whether it was to supplement an existing income, to quit that job you so desperately dislike or to build an empire. Remember the reason you are doing this.
Most importantly, ensure it is in line with your highest values and the sky is the limit.
