This Episode: A Simple Strategy To Get Different Results
Wishing for your business to grow isn’t enough. In order to get different, better results, you need to change. You have to change your habits and skills to learn how to get to the next level. It can sometimes feel unsettling to fall into a new routine, but it’s necessary to step up your game as a retailer. It may sound trite, but without change, there will be no change.
Do you agree with this sentiment? What is something you have had to change in your life to get where you are today? I would love to hear about it in the comments.
I have the opposite problem. I want to change everything, all the time. Used to drive my coworkers nuts. Over time, I’ve learned to slow down and really try to make each change count. To spend the time really learning the software inside and out, making all the customization stuff necessary, all the staff cross-training done thoroughly, etc. And on a personal level, reading more thoroughly on a topic (from a variety of sources) before flippantly making a big change in my diet or routine or whatever. So yes, I’m a big fan of change, but I think it’s worth doing it WELL.
You make an excellent point, Brendan. Your self-awareness is admirable! Keep making the correct changes!
Watched this yesterday and really let it sink in. Today, I’m putting it all on paper to see what I can tweak and what serves my business and what doesn’t so I can change! I’m not a brick & mortar, but love listening and learning from you!!
Thanks, Kathleen! You know what I say… If it ain’t written, it ain’t real! Good for you!
We made a couple of small additions to our business and retail sales went through the roof.
Thanks, Dixie! You’re living proof of the value of embracing change and implementing! We’re grateful to have you as part of the WhizBang! Retail Training community!
Great message to embrace change. You have a positive, realistic viewpoint. Thanks
Thanks for your comment, Lori! You’re welcome!
It’s like you were talking directly to me – it’s just what I needed!
I purchased the Retail Mastery System at Quilt Market and am excited to get the books!
Susan, I WAS talking directly to you! Can’t wait to hear how much you love your Retail Mastery System. Thanks for attending my class at Quilt Market!
I purchased the Mastery Program at URA! I have been reading and reading! It has opened my eyes to things I do and don’t do! Trying to make a change at store everyday! This week a lot was done on visual merchandising as I get ready for Christmas! A couple of quotes have really resonated “Your store is not a museum” and “Stack them high and watch them fly!” have given me something to work on!
Kimberly, thanks for attending my session at URA and investing in YOURSELF by getting the Retail Mastery System. Excited to hear more about how you apply the strategies. Great work!
This is just what I needed to hear this morning! Thank you!
You’re welcome, Elaine! I love to hear this kind of feedback!
