We all are entitled to an opinion, right? But lately it seems to me that some people know everything about hm frankly everything… you know how you get the best advises from people, who haven’t got kids and those who don’t work know everything about the workplaces, etc..
Over the last few months I had to learn a very important skill (that you absolutely must possess in a business) – a resilience to silly comments, feedback, usually totally irreverent and based on no evidence…
For instance, a business must be advertised on Facebook, or you have to constantly have sales on your website or at least add something free to your product, if not, a free shipment,et.. I find it amazing how much people, who have never had a business, know about it…
Don’t get me wrong – I have come across a number of smart, constructive criticism, comments which significantly improved the way I do things today (I really need to mention my lovely partner here, who is an absolute rock, mentor, supporting and encouraging me all the way). I must say though the irrelevant opinions/judgments/ tips from God knows where are the total winner. We all have a need of feeling useful but sometimes it is better to keep your opinion to yourself.
I actually now enjoy listening to those ‘experts’ who knows I won’t even sell even one pair of Gucio shoes. I have a smile on my face as I already have proven them wrong. Gucio shoes have got attention, more than I ever expected at this stage of my business (3 weeks from launching website and over 400 unique visits and ).
The journey so far has been so educational and so interesting, and I love every bit of it. I’m excited about the unknown that I'm sure is waiting just around the corner.
Next time you want to comments on something, think twice – do you really have anything useful to say? If not, better not to say anything. Trust me – you will save yourself an embarrassment.
