Before You Plan, Assess!

The holidays are coming and as a product based business, planning for them should be a top priority. However, before you can even begin to think about what is to come, you need to look at what you have. This is such an important part of the process! It may seem tedious, but it will really help you set goals and understand your business better.

What are some things to look at? Start with your supplies and inventory. If you don’t have a system set up, now is the time. You also want to look at the previous year’s sales during the holidays and set some realistic goals.

Lastly, you want to take a look at your products. What can you update or improve upon in your listings or photos?

Taking the time to do these things will really help you get your holiday prep off to a great start. Set aside a day before things get crazy and check these off your list so you can go into the holiday season confident and ready to go!

We put together a course that helps you do all this and MORE. We want to help you make this the best holiday season yet! Come join the CBR Rock Your Shop Holiday Extravaganza and get your shop and holiday in tip top shape!

Episode 46 – Things to Think About Before Setting Up Shop

Hey Rebels!  In this episode Caroline and Kelly talk all things to think about before setting up shop!  Caroline and Kelly give great tips on how to get your shop ready!  Branding is very important for your shop, but do not let it hold you back from starting and getting yourself out there!  You are you, so do not let what others may think hold you back!  Focus on yourself and you will see growth!  Something else to think about when setting up shop, is learning to separate your business money from your personal money.  When setting up shop, right away you need to set up a business account.  In the beginning it is hard to set up paying yourself.  You need to give yourself time and learn to treat yourself as an employee!  Another important point when setting up shop is having  good system set in place!  How will you get your shop running smoothly?!  What process is going to work for you?  Figure out a system that works for you so you can manage what you have!  Focus on one thing at a time, you cannot do it all at once. The best advice for opening up shop-Just Start!!!  Later Rebels!

Quote Love from Caroline & Kelly

Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle or end -Carline

Try to think big picture-let’s grow, grow grow -Kelly

Figure out a system that works for you so you can manage what you have -Caroline

If you don’t have everything at once when you start, no one is going to know -Kelly
