From not having much to do to having a shit ton of work in the blink of an eye, it’s been a surprisingly welcome change of pace so far this October.
For the past 2 months prior, I spent most of my time reoptimizing my eBay listings and providing better and faster customer service. Some days I felt like I could only do so much of it before getting burnt out.
Fortunately, it all paid off because I was able to earn my Silver Powerseller Badge back from eBay after not having it for a few months.
Sales have been picking up since then and I’m really looking forward to sharing my second experience of the upcoming holiday season with you. Business and sales are typically 3x to 5x greater during this time, so I hope to share good results!
Tackling Multiple New Projects
My brain started getting really curious this month (probably due to the lack of stimulation) and tons of other projects started coming to me all at the same time; I started this website, I started being more active on my social media (Instagram / LiveStar) and also registered for an AirBNB course that my good friend David Vu helped create (also the one who created the eBay Dropshipping course I took). There is currently a huge earlybird promo that is available here if you are interested in taking a look at what I will be doing next. Who knows, maybe we’ll partner up or even be rivals? 🙂
Dealing With The Unexpected
One project that I did not expect to take on, however, was a GoFundMe campaign that I started a few days ago for Ria, my Virtual Assistant. She along with her neighbors and 2 young children lost all their possessions to super typhoon Lawin/Haima that hit the Philippines last week. For more information on how you can help, please consider checking out my campaign here. All funds donated will allow Ria to purchase a generator, supplies, food, and to rebuild her home and her life.
Learning Time Management
The biggest takeaway after feeling so overwhelmed every day was to approach each thing one step at a time. By doing so, I was able to cut down on the anxiety I was feeling and prioritize my day more efficiently. After failing multiple times to create a structured schedule, I finally found something that worked for me:
work(eBay) in the morning, lunch, important time sensitive tasks in the afternoon, dinner, and website work or side project work in the evening.
I’m so excited to share with you what else is to come. Things are really getting amped up from here. Thanks for reading!
