The Lovely Shop 123

I woke up early this morning to work on my ecommerce site using Shopify and added new items. It is a steep learning curve, but then you will save much from hiring a designer or programmer to do it. Then it was napping time before breakfast of Nestle Omega-3 glass of milk and I headed back to work. Did an invoice and was puzzled why the printing seems truncated. I had a scare and assumed it was virus as recently there was peer-to-peer connection. Anyway, cut the long story short, it was out of black ink and I changed the cartridge and everything went well again!

I was also trolling the internet when I came across The Lovely Shop 123, where you can click on the link to do online shopping. Valentine’s day is coming and it is time to get your special someone something sexy like lingerie for lovers, spouses, couples, etc.

Social Blade – Find Instagram Influencers

To find Instagram Influencers, you need sites like Social Blade which shows the relevant data. This site is useful, especially those doing Shopify or any other ecommerce sites selling online. I am still in the learning process and patience is a virtue. This is so true in any endeavours or venture you are doing – be it studying, business, etc and not get panicky easily. There is always a solution to every problem. You need to be persistent and not give up easily. There are so many apps that you can use and one can be overwhelmed if not focused. Don’t waste time going for karoake or binge drinking with friends till you get drunk.

Just Came Back from Down South

I just came back from KL by Firefly which is a small propeller plane for domestic flights. We were given a choice of curry puffs or peanuts and drinks like soya, sky juice or orange juice. Arrived there early in the morning to meet clients and for interview. Bought Business Today magazine and Focus as well. Had lunch at Fish and Co and dinner at Subway Sandwich. Feeling a little tired now but need to update this blog and perhaps if I am in the mood, look into my Shopify store. I messed up the categories as I was trying to remove the double menu and in my haste this morning, I make more mistakes. Later have to figure out how to solve this problem as I just changed to a new paid theme. The free Debut theme was easier and more user-friendly.

13 Reasons You are Not as Successful as You Should Be

The infographic is self-explantory, but here, I shall highlight a few of them. One of them is Laziness. Yes, most people wake up late and do nothing to keep their brains active or work with their hands to prevent poverty. It is easier to just tuck in bed under your silk duvet and turn on the air-con instead of trundle out of bed, have early breakfast and get to work! Most people dream of success, but the rich ones are the only people working their butts off. Most will dream of success and even envy the rich, but still they do nothing about it and prefer to laze around, expecting parents or the Government to feed them, while they merely exists.

The other one is Fear! I am also guilty of this; like fear of failure, etc. Don’t ever let fear come into your life for it may become a reality. God works by faith which is the opposite of fear. Have faith that you can do it and read up to learn new skills. Rome was not built in a day! It takes years of learning and practice to get to where you are today. Personally, I have a fear of programming because I could not troubleshoot. Hence, my challenge is to over come this fear and slowly pick up the pieces and put them into a jigsaw puzzle.

Stay away from Negative people who may put you down or destroy your confidence! They could even be your close friends, in-laws or relatives who feel inferior and try to put you down instead to feel superior and a sense of power over you. These parasites are to be avoided at all costs!

You need to set goals and resolutions for the year. No goals means no action taken and you will vegetate away. You need to set goals to keep yourself productively occupied and set plans, desires and purpose in life. Then only living for something or someone you love makes it all the more meaningful. You will enjoy the journey along the way.

Waste time is another factor of the reasons you are not as successful as you should be. Don’t be a time waster by playing games unless you want to destress for a while, but don’t play games to the extent of forgetting to eat, take a bath and play till you drop dead. This had happened to a few professional game players where they are so addicted to computer games that they forget the most important activities in life.

Using Google Trends to check Traffic

Using Google Trends to check traffic for certain keywords is useful. This is especially so if you have ecommerce store and want to scale up to next level. Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it. Proverbs 10:4 – A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. Proverbs 14:23 – In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty. These 2 verses also remind me to continue to work hard and not give up easily. Like in the case of my Shopify store, it is easy to just throw in the towel and give up. But I shall give it another shot and work at it diligently, sourcing for winning products.

Konversion and Turbo Theme on Shopify

I am considering of paying RM 500 to scale up my Shopify shop using paid theme like Konversion or Turbo which is double the price at $350. ZelloShop.com is very well developed, has a hundred products and makes USD 100,000 per month revenue with USD 50,000 profit. I might just follow the excellent business model shared by 2 male business partners with 2 Virtual Assistants helping them for RM 4,000 in total. My Shopify shop is already 4 months in operation but still hardly any sales. Hence, I need a mentor to guide me to scale up my business to even greater heights. As you know, most of the succcessful Shopify owners are men, very few ladies are in this business, unless they sell maternity stuffs.

10 Powerful Habits of the Ultra Successful

Above is an infographic that is self explanatory. One of the habits is networking with people smarter than you or successful ones. Birds of a feather flock together. Another is to diet and exercise like playing futsal, soccer, sports, tennis, swimming, golfing or cycling. I should also add, that one needs to have a hobby too like playing the guitar, organ, piano, flute, etc. Others include blogging, writing articles, or even moonlighting part-time by being a freelancer and bid for jobs. Craigslist.org is a good place to look for free jobs online and you don’t have to pay anything, unlike Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, even though these sites will always have constant jobs offers.

Tomorrow, on a short notice, I shall be going down to Kuala Lumpur with my married business partner due to issues in a condominium, visit other places and then head to Ipoh on Friday. We just put our pet Pomeranian puppy in a pet hotel for 3 days or so. The 2 white Holland Lop rabbits will be taken care of by the workers in another place. Such is my life of travelling and working. Sometimes, I wish to have a family of my own and not travel so much with someone special.
