I always think I can do it all. BUT I want to approach things differently this time by focusing only on the important stuff. Yesterday, I shared with you how a couple of sentences in a book inspired me to put together my list of things to remember before I go taking on the world (as I have a habit of doing). Here are my 8 Things to Remember BEFORE Biting Off More Than I Will Be Able To Chew.
1) Know what you need to succeed. For my jewelry business it’s a beautiful product line, sales outlets, and marketing plans to boost my visibility.
2) Of those things, identify what you will be the best at providing. For me it’s the product and the sales.
3) Decide how much you want to invest in the things you don’t feel as confident about. Yes, be willing to enter new territory, but don’t end up with too many learning curves all at once. It’ll drive you crazy. (Take if from one who’s been there.)
4) Of the things on your list that you feel less confident about, decide which ones you want to tackle and which ones are best left to experts.
5) I want to be engaged in my marketing, but I realize it’s a HUGE concept! It involves social media, learning how to pitch myself and my product to media and customers, and networking with people who can help me. I may find that I want to add professional help but for now I’m jumping in.
6) If you can’t do it and it needs to be done, figure out how to get it done. See point 7.
7) Network. Network. Network. You gotta give to get. . I’ve been very generous with my time and in return have developed a super network of people who help and mentor me in the jewelry business.
8) Beware of the time-sucking collaterals. In my case, it was learning photography so I could take photos of my products for my web site. Some of these can’t be avoided so it’s important to identify which are critical to the success of the project and plan how to get them done. My blog post for next week (April 25 will cover this topic)
No one can do it all. There’s no more powerful recipe for succeeding than focusing on the important stuff.
