Something is better than nothing.
Many entrepreneurs believe that if you don’t swing for the fences every time, then you are just wasting your efforts. Do you think that is true? Does every effort have to be a home run? What if you don’t have the means or the information to go as far as you’d like, should that stop you from trying? No! Too often business leaders like you believe the lie that if you settle for a good step, you’ll never make a great step. That thinking can paralyze you and keep you complacent! Even if you can only make a small step toward your goal today, it’s better than nothing! To hear Scott explain how this simple truth has played out in his life, make sure to listen to this episode of The Amazing Seller!
You only fail when you give up!
What does failure look like? Is it defined by how much money you lose? According to Scott, failure is when you throw in the towel! Your journey to building your ecommerce business will be full of highs and lows along the way. How you react to those low points is up to you. Will you let it defeat you and pull you out of the game or will you keep pressing forward toward your goal? If you have any hope for long term success, you’ve got to have the right mindset. Don’t let challenges and roadblocks distract you. Listen to this episode of The Amazing Seller as Scott expands on this important lesson; you don't want to miss it!
Why you need to get your products on multiple channels.
If you’ve been around the TAS community for very long, you know that Scott is passionate about helping sellers like you build out their brand and feature products on multiple channels. Why does it matter if your products are on multiple channels? Why do you need assets like email lists that are independent of Amazon? To secure a long term future for your brand! It is foolishness to put all your eggs in the Amazon basket. Give your brand a chance to succeed and look for ways to plant seeds and build out alternative channels early in your brand if possible.
