    Yes and when you are not conscious of this fact, nothing will ever get done until you are aware. Thanks for waking me up Neil!!

  3. As a perfectionist by my personality and nature, I, too have learned that I cannot push my products at MY expected level, or I would eat up my profit in my time. So… Your Lesson #1 spoke directly to me.

    For example, Editing Photos. I use photo editing software, and then I deep-etch those edited photos. I used to take over 50 photos for each item, and then select the best 12 for eBay…but I would still edit all of them. I learned to gain more time, and get my items listed quicker, I needed to 1) limit the number of pics I take of each item, while still making certain to capture all sides, and views that may answer questions for the buyer 2) NOT to be SO Picky…yet picky enough with the photo imperfections (shadows, angles, etc.) and 3) once I am down to the photos I like the best, THEN deep-etch them (again without “needing” them to be 100% perfect! Now I am listing MORE items, and in a smaller space of time! Thanks for thanks for the reminder, Neil, of this pitfall we all may fall into at some time or another!

    Many entrepreneurs just stay at home and collect their money without sharing.
    Neil your time is always greatly appreciated to take time away from your family to teach others.
