Normally, Day 10 would be a third of the way through a month, but since it's February, the month is going by much faster it seems. Good thing we get an extra day this month!
Here's my wins for the day:
1.) Listed 10 New Items On eBay
As a reseller, it can be really easy to get so involved with sourcing (my favorite part) that we fail to do our duty to list the items we source.
While you gotta have good products to sell, it does no good if they just sit in your storage.
Unfortunately, a lot of resellers end up storing more than they sell if they are not careful.
So today and the rest of this week, I am challenging myself to post at least 10 items a day on eBay so that I can start selling more in the near future.
While this may not directly affect my finances today, it gives me the opportunity to increase sales which will then impact my finances.
It took me a while, but I was finally able to create 10 new listings today so I will take that WIN!
FUN FACT: A fairly common resellers term is "death pile" which refers to all the unlisted inventory just sitting around. If you have been reselling for any period of time, unfortunately we all have one.
2.) Free Dinner (But I Worked for It)
It's not really hard work, but mystery shopping is a great way to earn a free meal in exchange for taking the time to review the restaurant.
It has been talked about some in the past and although I haven't shared much of my experience here in the community, I have actually been participating in mystery shopping for quite some time now.
Today's mystery shop, I had to order food to be delivered to my house after which I evaluated both the restaurant and the delivery person.
The food was paid, as was the tip, taxes and delivery fees and also they paid me a little extra on top to do the job.
Can't complain about a free dinner that doesn't even require me to use any gas!
LESSON FROM TODAY: Not everything you do will have an immediate effect on your finances. However, the key to a better financial FUTURE, is to take steps TODAY to make tomorrow better!
Because most of my day was spent listing stuff or organizing my business expenses, I really didn't have a lot of time to be spending much money.
I did have to pick up some items I bought to resell from an online auction, but other than that, I pretty much just went about my day as usual.
Now let's just see if I can keep up with listing 10 items a day. I think that now that I am back in the swing of things, it will hopefully go much faster.
Have you done anything recently that may not of immediately affected your finances but will in the future?
