Having a goal to strive towards is invigorating? Many eBay sellers have the same goal. The one that sticks out to me is breaking outside of the eBay walls and be able to open your OWN retail location. Whether that means an actual store location or an online presence. If that is your goal, just go for it!
One of the obstacles that I have discussed in the past about eBay selling was consistency. Be sure to work at a pace you are comfortable with. Your business isn’t going to grow overnight. Working long hours and pulling all-nighters is only going to make you feel overwhelmed and increase the chances of giving up. You can’t and shouldn’t expect yourself to list hundreds of items to your eBay store in one day. BUT, if you work consistently at listing a few items each night (or whatever you are comfortable with) – your goal of filling your eBay store with inventory will be accomplished before you know it! An added bonus to listing items this way is that it will keep the Search Engine traffic coming. If you do not keep a constant flow of listings the traffic decreases, and eventually so will your sales.
I am a very schedule oriented person. If something is a minute later than I have scheduled – it can throw my entire day off! I’ve been improving on not letting certain things bother me – but when it comes to my focus on my business, then I must keep to a strict schedule. It allows me to stay focused and accomplish what I need to get done in a reasonable amount of time. Placing your focus on one thing at a time will ensure that you put 100% into each thing that needs to be done. This helps to ensure that everything is done right the first time – and that feels good!
