My major concern in entrepreneurship is the manpower or the capability to sell my stuff. I have so many nice stuff and yet, i dont have the talent and the time to sell them because i am almost always busy with my own job! Haayyyyyyyy... Man! I wish i have someone who can sell for me! To the entrepreneurs here, how do you sell your stuff? Please take note that this is just my sideline. What do you suggest i do? Or should i give up?

One thing about being an entrepreneur is that you really have to devote a significant amount of time to your own business. And you are actually doing almost everything. You're the boss, your the salesman, your the accountant, your the secretary all in one. This is how entrepreneurs start. As your business grows, then you'll be able to hire people to do those things. But since you said that you don't have a knack for selling, the best thing to do is look for someone to do the selling for you and arrange a good compensation package for that person. Usually a percentage of the sales is okay.

i agree with you, i make jewellery and i started off just making basic pieces, now i make bigger and better pieces, it's been 2 years since i started and i have to say, it's soared, i am my boss, secretary, accountant, deliverer etc etc, i do everything, and it's paid off, we just need the dedication and devotion to keep going, once you make that first sale, it gives you the drive to do more, getting it out there is tough but there are places you can put this stuff and people do see it, it just takes time and patience, good advice my friend, i hope this lady does right and earns herself a nice little crust for all her hard work

Hi Graceewenx, What is it that you have to sell? I make incense burners and I'm lucky enough to work in a store that allows me to display them at a very low rate. I also went around to various shops and have them displayed there. If it is 2nd hand stuff that you have, I've heard of people having luck selling on e-bay and also craigslist. I've sold items on craigs list with good results and also through consignments stores locally. One important thing is to know the value of what it is you are selling.

i am with 3 websites right now and all 3 sell my goods for me, 2 are free, one i have to pay for, but it pays off in the end, i just have to do the donkey work, make the stuff, list it, then send, it's easy once the work gets out there, i hope you have every success with your burners and incense, if you want the links to the places i sell my stuff, please add me i am willing to share with you
