Finding Work/Life Balance

green-meditating-silohette-hi

This in an important part of life & there are so many suggestions on this topic, so many are good but not necessarily the right fit. I work from home, which presents a large set of difficulties when balancing my work with having a life.

A lot of people suggest unplugging for a while to promote relaxation, but I don’t find that to really work for me. I enjoy using some of my personal time gaming & video games do not function well without power.

I try to use a simple strategy & maybe it will work for you too:

Organize: Plan out work time, family time & personal time with the understanding that a certain amount of flexibility is a prerequisite to make it work out.

Meditate: I try to meditate at least 5 minutes every day, it helps to sharpen my focus & keep me from having a stress melt-down.

Play: Critical that play time happens, seriously what is the point of living if there is never time to enjoy it.

Focus: When work time rolls around I put most distractions to the side & get it done. I say most because I come from a large family & I will go crazy without TV or music in the background. Growing up in chaos has conditioned me to do my best thinking with a chaotic background.

Reevaluate: As with any plan, every now & then it needs to be looked over. This is the time when I eliminate anything that isn’t working & develop new strategies if needed.

Boho with the Dominique Necklace

Okay, well I admit it, the skirt adds a bit of steampunk flavor. I put this ensemble with only 1 of my jewelry pieces, going for a touch of minimalism & again I went with some favorite selections from The Pyramid Collection, because I love their eclectic clothing.

Reviews and Social Advertising

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

It’s very important to write reviews for your products. It can help your customers visualize how they might coordinate the pieces into their wardrobe & just generally assist them to decide which treasures suit them best. The reviews are limited to 200 characters so it is critical to be concise when capturing the spirit of the item.

Equally important is the sharing your thoughts about your offerings across the social platforms you’re a part of. I personally like to use Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ & Facebook. Regular communication with your audience is vital to stay in touch with your existing customers & to attract more people to your boutique. Twitter has a more restrictive character limit, Pinterest allows more words than the review & both G+ & FB allow many characters, so it can be important to tailor the review for the various platforms you intend to post on. I post one review a day with the exception of the occasional Saturday, though I also post sales as soon as I am aware of them.

If you have the skills with video you might even consider vlogging about your jewelry selections as well. The wider the audience you reach, the better your business will do. I am not especially skilled with video so it is a marketing strategy I have never employed myself.

All the internet marketers suggest using a blog to attract attention to your shop. I’m still very new at this particular aspect of marketing so I am hesitant to make specific suggestions about it at this time, but it is another obvious way to maintain the lines of communication with existing & potential customers.

It’s free to sign up for you own boutique, if you’re interested check out my boutique Orbb’s Fashion & work with me. I can be reached easily by email as well at orbb80@gmail.com.
