I have been selling online for several years now and although it has been a huge blessing it also is an ever evolving lifestyle. For all of the wonderful perks (flexibility, fun, a way to make a great living) there are also drawbacks and situations to navigate such as how to keep money rolling in during the summer when the kids are off and finding the right work-life balance.
Stephen Smotherman (you will remember him from that Awesome guide to Board Game Selling) along with his wife, Rebecca, have written a fabulous book that tackles all of these subjects and much, much more. For anyone that lives this lifestyle (or anyone considering it) this is a very interesting read!
Does any of this look familiar?
My spouse thinks I’m wasting my time and that I should get a “real” job.
My husband wants to join the business, but how can I train him when I’m already so impatient with him?
I know my family should be my main priority, but how do I do that without neglecting my business?
How can a single parent find balance with her kids and with working at home?
My spouse and I already argue over money issues, won’t business finances make it even worse?
My husband doesn’t understand that I need to reinvest my profits. How can I get him to understand?
My wife’s risk tolerance is way different from mine. How do we deal with the different ways we source products?
I’m single and run a reselling business by myself. How can I find a support system?
balance-work-and-familyThe only thing my husband does is load up the heavy boxes in the car when I take them to UPS. How can I get him to do more?
I want to spend more time with my kids. How can I get them involved in the business without making it a liability?
My husband wants nothing to do with my reselling business. How can I help him understand?
Stephen and Rebecca answer these questions and many more!
