The Resilient Retail Game Plan Episode 108

Five Ways To Avoid Your Product Business Becoming A Burden

Podcast show notes

Between the legacy of the Coronavirus pandemic, ballooning energy costs, rising levels of inflation and strikes left, right and centre, I think it’s safe to assume that some of you might be feeling a bit drained, exhausted even.

Maybe you’ve had issues sourcing your products or materials, perhaps your online sales have dissipated dramatically post-lockdown, or maybe everyone around you seems to be succeeding whilst you’re struggling to make ends meet. Whatever your situation, when things get tough, it can be hard to find the love, positivity and motivation needed to run your own business – without those qualities, frustration, stress and pressure can soon follow.

So, in episode 108 of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, I want to help you rekindle your affection for your products and reframe your outlook on your business as I cover five ways to avoid your product business becoming a burden.

In this podcast, we’ll discuss the vital importance of setting boundaries and the variety of tools to help you do so. We’ll delve into finances and how setting realistic expectations can help relieve some pressure in the slowest of sales months. I’ll also touch on how managing your mindset is key to growing your business, how asking for support helps share the load and, as always, how knowing your key numbers will help give you better control over your business.
