Selfish Sharing

If you aren’t interested in reading yet another person’s manifesto about the importance of sharing… I don’t blame you.

From the moment you sign up on Poshmark, the term and “importance” of the action is shoved down your throat.

Sometimes I view sharing like I viewed Lentil Stew as a child…  I know it’s supposed to be good for me but I just can’t stomach it anymore.

Let’s face the facts though, out of all of the currently popular selling platforms, none offer such a straightforward opportunity to get your listings out there. From what I have observed, to get attention on the other popular platforms it is advised to constantly list new items, utilize hashtags, and participate in forums (among others). All are well and good, but Poshmark offers an easier way… to Share.

How to be a SUCCESS on Poshmark

Success on Poshmark

Everyone wants to know how to be a SUCCESS on Poshmark.

 

You may have read articles about Poshmark sellers achieving success by making five… six… SEVEN FIGURES (!!!) from their closets. Some will read these news articles and take it as motivation and some will immediately assume personal defeat.

After hearing about these “super closets”, have you found yourself thinking about the pair of knee socks you just sold (and the $2.05 profit…) then calculated exactly how many pairs you will have to sell to make six figures?

What am I doing wrong???

Nothing.

 

Success on Poshmark doesn’t always mean that you are beating everyone else at the game. You have to define what “being successful” means to you, how you are going to measure your personal success, and FIRST figuring out what the hell are you even trying to achieve.

 

Every Poshmark Closet is NOT the same… quite honestly, you really can’t compare most of them. They are each individual businesses with their own unique niche.

Let me explain it this way…

What’s REALLY in My Bag

Contents of my Handbag

 

 

There is an overwhelming obsession in magazines and blogs to find out “What’s in her bag!” Typically it is a celebrity or other woman-of-the-moment.
I can remember being in high school and reading Seventeen Magazine (or was it YM?) and there was a supermodel who was sharing the contents of her bag. Unfortunately I have no clue who it was. What stuck out to me was how vastly different her bag was from my own. She had chapstick (check!) , a wallet with important cards (check!), a disc-man and favorite CDs (hmmmm), and a white t-shirt (WHAT??). She went on to describe that of course she needed that white t-shirt because you never knew when you needed a white t-shirt. The shirt she had was probably worth more than my whole purse and contents. I wanted to be that cool but couldn’t bring myself to actually stick a white t-shirt in my bag. sigh.
I didn’t need a white t-shirt.

Things I wish I Knew about Clothing… in my 20’s

I promise this is not a lame fashion post about tired topics like “What to wear to the BBQ this weekend!” or “How to look effortless during festival season!” I mean, really? Well, you might still find it lame but whatever.

Like most of us, I have a full closet. I also suffer from “I have nothing to wear.” For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to have a small selection of only my favorites. A few pieces that when I open my closet door I get overwhelmed because I want to wear everything THAT DAY.

Days I have felt that way so far? zero.

I hated everything. I used to buy tops just to wear them once or twice and end up despising them for whatever reason. I spent too much money at LOFT and then never wore what I purchased. Normally I would hate the way they felt or the fit was wrong but I loved owning them and liked having them hanging around in my closet.

Recently (within the past few years) my mind has been completely blown as I discovered a few things about clothing (and myself). If I could go back in time- this is what I would have sat down and told myself over a cup of coffee.

The Crazy Cat Lady

CAT3CAT1CAT2

 

First off, nothing makes me more excited than society’s sudden acceptance of all things CAT.

Look around you, shirts are adorned with the word “Meow!” and kittens dressed as astronauts. Also, the coffee world has embraced the market’s demand for kitty themed mugs. Pure bliss for a cat lover such as me!

But can we ever get away from the stigma of “Crazy Cat Lady”???

Long ago I decided to embrace it. Why? Well, you have probably decided that this mythical woman is nuts and must be avoided. Maybe it’s time to meet her…Continue reading →
