I do love spring but I have noticed that spring is not good for my business. I have no explanation for it except for the obvious ones – there are no big holidays, people are more outdoors and not spending that much time online, it is a slow season even for big business and so on.
No matter what I say to myself, the fact is that the business is slow and sometimes so slow that there is none. At this time it is very important to stay motivated and not to become sluggish. It is a Herculean task, I know but with a little bit of organisation it can be done.
First, I start with spring cleaning. Nicely organised and clean desk always looks nice and is more inviting. Next, going through my numerous files that piled up on the desktop so I can hardly find anything on it. It is a time when I do not need to fill order so frantically so I can rethink few strategies that don’t work and some products that do not work anymore. And last but not least, I bring in some new ideas. It is the only time when I have more time to look around, read some inspirational blog posts and watch some motivational videos.
This is also the only time of the year when I am grateful to have my full-time job and not having to stress so much as I know that there will be a cheque at the end of the month waiting for me.
All in all, I try to shake off the low work moral that creeps on me every year during this time. I know it will pass as it always had. So just keep on hanging in there dear friends!
