Finding the Inspiration to do it
Quite often, it is really hard to motivate yourself when you work from home. The majority of days I really don’t have an issue getting all of my work finished and keeping on task, yet these days I have found myself procrastinating a good deal.
I personally believe it has to do with the fact that while my Wrap Bracelet online business is actually profitable, I am not challenged sufficiently by it. Do not get me wrong I still have lots of work I could be working on, but it is the stuff that I have found to be incredibly monotonous and mind-numbing. For instance advertising, I do not like promoting and marketing, nothing and I mean absolutely nothing concerning advertising myself or my Bracelets is enjoyable to me. I am aware this is a horrible attitude to have, and I have made an effort to put a positive spin on it but every time I sit down to get a strategy together my mind goes blank and I find something diffrent to do. I know I’d generate a lot more revenue if I put even a 10th of the energy into marketing. The end results are not always instantaneous, like when I make a new bracelet. So I feel like every that I do does not give good results.
I’ve got to try to advertise my bracelets because I am quite proud of the work I do, and I want buyers to see all the thought and care that I put in my wrap jewellery. I want them to love wearing them as much as I enjoy making them. To help motivate myself I’m going to teach myself a whole new bracelet making process. It will provide my buyers more choices and styles to pick from. As a bonus maybe it’ll get me excited enough to market them using the many advertising skills that I have, but up to now refuse to actually put into practice. Come to think of it, actually creating this post about my amazing procrastinating abilities has inspired me a tiny bit.
