What a month! August was simply a great month for me overall. Summer was here I was able to enjoy being in nature and enjoying summer more than I ever had before. I was able to go to my favorite beer festival and spend tons of time with family & friends in the Adirondacks. It was really a moment for me this month when I realized how awesome being self employed really is and how happy I am that I took a chance and started this new venture. Even though I did all these great things I still had to make time for my business and realized I can shift my focus to different areas depending on what is happening with my life.
I honestly only put effort into two areas of my business this month:
- Merch by Amazon- I was able to get over 200 new designs up this month after switching to Adobe Illustrator and it gave me a massive growth opportunity and you will see in next months report how massive I was able to push sales even after almost doubling this month!
- YouTube – I was able to work on video in bulk then and and release when i was away from my home office. This was great because I was able to address many of my Subscribers questions that I have been logging and I received a ton of great feedback.
With eBay all I really did this month was ship items that sold and because my inventory was around 600 items I was able to have a pretty good month!
