Do You Wear To Many Hats?


“If you are having trouble wearing all your hats, then try wearing one at a time.”

I found this quote in one of my magazines and it made me stop and think about this for a minute. We all wear a ton of hats as online entrepreneurs such as seller, social media, blogger, email and more. Then of course we all have the usual no computer hats for family, wife, husband, cook and that list is almost endless.

So how many hats do you wear in a day and should you think about only wearing a few or even one at a time? These past few months I have done a lot of thinking about all my online selling and decided to make some changes before the fall selling season started. I think my main one was to remove everything from all the places I had items listed to just focus on Ebay and Amazon. I know that for many that is not something you want to do but for me I have found that sales have really gone up.

Since I have been focusing on just listing and selling on these two I have been able to list more and also promote these two venues. I have found both Twitter and Facebook have resulted in sales so I know the time I spend on these helps improve my sales and is time well spent. I do think this works better for myself as an One of a Kind item seller then if I was selling brand new items or even drop shipping.

We each need to find what works best for us and maybe taking a bit of time to think about how many hats you wear every day will give you some focus and the very least will give you something to think about.

    Great blog post! I have been thinking through this also, about time management and focus online.

    Lately I’ve feeling like a walking hat rack. Got a lot of irons in the fire requiring a great deal of time to implement.

    I’ve already reduced my selling presence to Bonanza and Ecrater. I had considered Addoway, but simply do not have enough time to check it out.

    Not to mention to private hats I wear…

      Hi John you are feeling what everyone feels every day and it is hard to figure out where to best spend your time and money when you are an online entrepreneur. I think focus is the what we all need but oh so hard to accomplish.

      Hi I really don’t know why you couldn’t view my site on your Blackberry and wondered if you are having trouble with other sites or just mine?
