I used to work at a place where I could purchase clothing at wholesale prices. We're talking $40 for a $180 jacket. $4 for a high end tshirt. $20 for a brand name gym bag. Heck, I even bought a snowboard at wholesale price. This caused an abundance of things. My walk in closet was so jam packed with stuff that I did not have ANY room to even browse through the items. So about 5 years ago I decided I was going to purge. I sold a bag of clothes for $50 and I donated some things to a second hand store. Perfect. Over the years I dwindled down little by little but I still kept buying more. Since this Pandemic hit and losing my job, I've been sitting at home in this mess of stuff and I needed it to be gone. I am so sick of looking at it and I didn't want to deal with the hassle of selling on Facebook Marketplace, so I discovered Poshmark and off I went. This is what I've learned...
Are you sick of all the other imitators? Don’t let the real one intimidate ya! When someone told me to follow DJ Khaled on Snapchat (DJKhaled305), I laughed and asked why I need to follow some rapper; I need enrichment, not sick flow. BOY, DID I STAND CORRECTED! (He’s not even a rapper HAHAHA.) DJ Khaled has become my unofficial life coach and favorite snapper...
The most common objection I have to overcome in this business is ‘I don’t have time.’
What? This is usually before I’ve even told them what building a future entails. I work 8-4 Monday to Friday, I have a family, and I like to have time for myself, because Netflix sure isn’t going to watch itself.
I work my business one hour a day. That’s it. When you think about it, that’s 4.2% of my day that I dedicate to income producing activities and the rest of the 23 hours I’m doing other things. But, did you know that simply having coffee with you friend is relationship building and even though you may not mention your business, you are still fostering a relationship that could and probably will contribute to your business in the future?
When it comes to personal development we like to explore all avenues of learning. Podcasts are an amazing resource because you can basically listen to them anywhere. Need to get your 10 minutes of daily PD in? Pop on an episode of one of these 7 podcasts in your car on your way to work. Maybe you need to get some exercise? Go for a walk and get some PD in through your ear buds. Getting ready in the morning? I know I've been obsessed with listening to covers of Linkin Park's 'Heavy' on repeat, but if you won't have time to read a book or listen to a podcast later, throw an episode on instead.
Here is our recommended list of podcasts by kick ass Boss Babes in no particular order:
Law of Attraction is a funny thing; I always used to think it was complete and utter Bullshit until one time I tried using it for good and it worked. Of course, it was something small, a parking spot. That was something I could chalk up to sheer coincidence. I did this every time I went out; lo and behold, I now get good parking everywhere I go.
