Some thoughts from the interview
“The online sales kinda started around five years ago when we went into a family run antiques shop and started selling online for them.”
“They didn’t have an online presence and we seen a niche that needed to be filled.”
“Very quickly it was apparent that it was a model that was going to work”
“So long as you’ve got the right attitude towards the work I guess it doesn’t matter what you’re doing.”
“The shops been full of unique, one off items and that’s not really the easiest thing to retail online.”
“To a certain extent the photography is the most important thing of all because the way that we work is we now have three or four different shops and art galleries will send us their items and we sell them through a commission basis so we’ll demand a product description and price but it’s the photography itself that really sells the item.”
“You have to picture every angle, every dent, every chip, every aspect of the piece to make sure that they can see it from the other side of the World as best as possible.”
“Over the last three years we’ve really made some leaps and bounds because we’ve been able to invest more in our equipment.”
“We decided with Amazon because we are one off items the nature of Amazon is more multiples rather than just selling one thing.”
“We give people enough time around the World to send it back to us if they’re not happy.”
“We have a large amount of packaging going out on a weekly basis and all of it goes fully insured and fully tracked.”
“You have to do what you can to protect your interest without costing yourself a fortune.”
“I’d like to spend more time on social media to be honest but seeing as there isn’t that many of us here I think social media could be a full time job for a person, just running it for one business.”
Best advice: “Make sure it’s viable Jordan Hicks Hat , don’t waste your time, your effort, your money unless you can see it paying off at the end.”

You're waiting your turn to make a speech, when suddenly you realize that your stomach is doing strange things and your mind is rapidly going blank. How do you handle this critical time period?
In all of my speaking classes, students ask me how to handle public speaking nervousness Derek Barnett Hat , fears, jitters, anxieties - and the physical symptoms these feelings produce. There is no single answer; you must prepare by anticipating your speech mentally, logistically, and physically.
Start by understanding that you'll spend a lot more time preparing than you will speaking. As a general rule, invest three hours of preparation for a half hour speech Jay Ajayi Hat , a six to one ratio. When you've become a highly experienced speaker, you may be able to cut preparation time considerably in some cases, but until then, don't skimp.
Part of your preparation will be to memorize your opening and closing -- three or four sentences each. Even if you cover your key points from notes, knowing your opening and closing by heart lets you start and end fluently, connecting with your audience when you are most nervous.
Go to the room where you'll be speaking as early as possible so you can get comfortable in the environment. If you will be speaking from a stage Fletcher Cox Hat , go early in the morning when no one is there and make friends with the stage. Then, during your presentation, you can concentrate on your audience, not your environment.
A wonderful preparation technique for small meetings is to go around shaking hands and making eye contact with everybody beforehand. For larger meetings, meet and shake hands with people in the front row at least, and some of the people as they are coming in the door. Connect with them personally Zach Ertz Hat , so they'll be rooting for your success. We as speakers are rarely nervous about individuals, only when faced with the thought of an audience. Once you've met the audience or at least some of them, they become less scary.
It's totally natural to be nervous. Try this acting technique. Find a private spot, and wave your hands in the air. Relax your jaw, and shake your head from side to side. Then shake your legs one at a time. Physically shake the tension out of your.
