You've probably heard it before but showing up is probably the most important thing you can do. With Poshmark, there will be times when you don't want to get in the game. This is a huge mistake that many of us probably make due to the excuses we make up in our minds. This post will dive deeper into why it's imperative you show up EVERY single chance you get.
You Can't Win If You're Not Present
On the surface, it makes total sense that you cannot win if you're present and playing. Every day counts and we're not getting any younger. If you want more sales, show up and list. If you made sales, show up and ship. If you want a bigger supply of inventory, get out there and find things to sell! And if you're lucky enough to have a team, don't count on them to show up for you, show up for yourself. This ties in with one of my core beliefs that CONSISTENCY will make your reselling dreams a reality on Poshmark or any other platform.
I've lived this advice for the past 11 months now and there's no way you're going to catch me on the sidelines if I can help it. If something needs to get done, I want need to be there. If there's nothing to do, then find something to do. But let's be real, there's always something to do! This reselling journey is a marathon so don't think you will make it by cherry-picking what days you want to show up and what days you want to go into your shell.
Separate yourself from the mediocre crowd by making it a point to always get up, get dressed and add value to your reselling business. Not doing so will eventually build poor habits and you'll wonder why you're not where you want to be.
Count Down From 5
If there's ever a day when you don't feel like showing up, just count down from 5 and GO! If you're in your bed, try this technique, it truly works! Slow sales or no sales will happen and it can get really demotivating, I've been there. Again, just count down from 5 and start doing something to take your mind off of the rut. It's amazing how much your incremental growth will have when everything is added up. If you can even pump out just 1 more thing a day, whether it's a listing, picture or new item, you're adding 365 more growth units by the end of the year!
Another day that goes by without you showing up is a loss that you're going to have to live with. Nobody will know but you will. Get up, get dressed, SHOW UP and do something!
