It’s Time to Start Planning…
I may be alone in this, but as a child, I absolutely loved back to school shopping. Not necessarily the back to school part, but the gathering of new school supplies. I took such careful time to arrange the pencils, pens, erasers, and sharpeners in my new pencil box. It brought such excitement in my heart to carefully insert fresh paper in a binder and plan the organization of future papers between the subject dividers.
Some of you have just mentally checked out and are closing this web page… but for the few who just enjoyed the memories and could almost smell the new box of crayons… Let’s continue!
Now as an adult, these feelings reemerge as we approach the New Year. The same excitement is kindled by a new journal that makes that paper crackle sound as it is opened for the first time, pages sticking together… It’s tearing that staticky cellophane off my new planner inserts for my Filofax… and even the overwhelming smell of plastic in the plastic tub aisle that holds the key to an organized home.
Are you with me on this?
If you are like me, you may have a love-hate for New Years Resolutions. You might say I have resolution reservations.
I love the idea of starting over and starting fresh. The New Year means a new beginning! Right?
And I think we can all agree that closing the door on 2016 is definitely something to celebrate!!!
When the new year approaches I will ceremoniously make a list of all the things I want to accomplish or change in the coming year. I do this knowing good and well that I WON’T in fact…
Work out everyday!
Drink more water!
Save $ !
Yet, I go in with blind ambition thinking this is definitely the year. I say this not to set myself up for failure in 2017… actually the opposite. Looking back at my list from 2016, I realize I did quite well… I made major strides to achieve most of the goals on my list.
“Are sales slow for you?”
This question is asked approximately every 5 seconds on Poshmark.
Ok, I totally made up that statistic.
BUT, I personally get asked this all the time. Honestly, I find myself asking my friends this question too!
There are times I see people posting photos on Instagram of all of their packages towering in a stack, and I just want to throw my hands up and quit because I haven’t had a sale in two weeks!
Then there are the times I have had to duck my head when asked… knowing I shipped out 15 sales that weekend.
If there is anything I have learned in the past few years of selling and completely overthinking the entire process is that sales are a complete roller coaster, so there is a much bigger question to ask…
Sharing makes the Poshmark world go ’round!
Love it or hate it- it is part of what keeps Poshmark from being just another online retailer. It allows us to see listings we wouldn’t normally see, helps us make sales we may not otherwise have, AND it connects us to each other. I am willing to bet that you probably first stumbled across a PFF or two because of a share.
Sure, we could go back and forth about the different ways to share and what gives you the highest ROI (return on investment).
But that’s not why I am writing this today… Today I am talking about what is going on Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
