Let’s begin by acknowledging that Mercury is in Retrograde. That bastard is always retrograding like a mofo.
Let’s also be upfront and say Dalma (yes, I AM referring to myself in the third person) has consumed one glass of whisky – my latest obsession.
So there’s that.
But let’s get to the point of this message shall we?
Panty selling is easy.
I repeat, selling panties is E-A-S-Y!
Because let’s be honest, logging into a platform and reposting shit is not difficult.
You don’t need to be a NASA Scientist to send a few messages to guys or chat to them online.
You don’t need a PhD to take pics and post them or to wear panties.
I’m telling you the basic fundamentals of this work are soooo simple anyone can do them. Plus, they say that it only takes 20 hours to get mediocre at basically anything. And we all know that when we first get started selling panties online that we can fly through that 20 hours in about, well, a day! LOLZ
Anyway, where am I going with this?
I’m here to tell you that the things you have to do to sell panties online are easy.
But here’s what’s hard.
Showing up every day is hard.
Showing up when you don’t feel like it is hard.
Showing up when you haven’t made a sale in days, weeks or EVER, is fucking hard.
Getting into the zone when your entire body is screaming that it doesn’t want to, is hard.
Your mindset and your mojo is EVERYTHING in this business.
The last few days I’ve not felt in the zone at all when it comes to showing up, being seen or doing the work. AND I can’t even blame my period because I’m meant to be in the ‘UP’ part of my cycle right now. That’s why Mercury is so handy 🙂
I’ve shared this on the podcast so many times. It’s perfectly normal to not be motivated around your business.
It’s normal to not feel like it, to question everything or to feel like quitting.
It’s unfortunately part of the entrepreneur’s journey. Ain’t nobody to boss over you which means you have to be your own boss. You have to get yourself in the mood, get yourself showing up and get yourself out of the funk.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do.
You can join a group – being around other sellers definitely helps! If you aren’t in mine already, hit reply to this message.
Invest in a book or training to level up your business. (A lot of that shit is free online. Make sure you listen to the podcast next week as I’m talking about that with my guest.)
Exercise or take time out for self-care – I know, seems counterintuitive but it can totally help.
You can start a practice of journalling or meditation (or both).
Start to become more organised! I know, I sound positively circa 1987 when I say that a to-do list can change your life and get the momentum going.
If you want to listen to what I’ve been doing to keep myself going during this weird vibe time in my business, listen to the podcast. I’ve linked it below.
Finally, I just want you to know that you’re not alone. We all go through this and it’s really hard. Yes, the work is easier but the self-motivation and self-management and staying interested in your business is HARD!!
