Its time to make the coffee...

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

I changed my profile info, this is what I changed it to, I don't really have time to rewrite the stuff so I'm cheating and re-posting it as today blog!


Getting up everyday at 5 am is not really that fun.

My husbands alarm goes off and he says:
"You going to make coffee?"

YES! Yes I will get up and make the coffee because if he makes it its too weak!

I would like to have it start by itself but our Bunn coffee pot has no automatic start, but its worth it, the coffee is that good! I also have to get up and "go" to work.

My days of doing what ever I want are gone. I now spend from about 6 am to 10 or 11 pm working on my online book sales.
Amazon, eBay, the website, adding books into inventory, learning how to use Anthology (my inventory & POS),
packing books to mail, adding inventory, adding inventory, repeat, repeat.

Its crazy, I can't believe how much work is involved and I feel like my head is going to explode with the amount of new things I've had to learn, and am still
learning.

But this is what I've been working toward the past three years. Getting the bookstore running. We decided to get the online sales cranking, then next year open the actual store. I'm so glad we did!

The learning curve is tremendous, even for someone with e-commerce and website building and marketing experience.
I sort of have help. My mom is great at finding more books to sell, and my daughter is supposed to be helping with the online store, but she's been having a bi-polar episode, which she's slowly coming out of.
So I'm working my butt off, only exercise is walking the dog 3 times a day, which is about 2 miles total. I will get back to regular scheduled walking once I get my stuff under control. But my eating is great because I'm so busy I have no time to over eat, and I don't buy bad food so there's no bad food to eat!

Here are the links to what I'm working on

Amazon: www.amazon.com/shops/ret
aledbooks

ebay: www.ebay.com/sch/retaled
books/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=

This is the website, but as my daughter has been working with it its not finished I add stuff here and there but I have other stuff to do: www.retaledbooks.com/

So between all these things, my life is crazy. Plus cooking, laundry, food shopping, I'd add cleaning but that's been hit and mostly miss LOL
So back to adding inventory!
