Are you planning on attending the 2010 NARTS Conference in Palm Beach, FL? The Computer Peeps are attending!
Something I always hear from new store owners (and even existing ones), is whether or not they can afford to attend.
I think Kate Holmes will agree with us – if you’re serious about your resale business, you can’t afford not to go to Conference. Conference provides a way for resale store owners to attend classes, meet other store owners, discuss what works and what doesn’t … the list goes on.
“But it’s only me and I can’t close my store for 3 days!” Hey, we’re a small business and we know we can’t afford to miss Conference. It’s a little different for us since we don’t have a brick and mortar location to man, but where there’s a will there’s a way. What you’ll learn at conference will more than pay for the few days your store would be closed.
What do you do when there’s an emergency, or when you need a vacation? Do you have a backup plan, so to speak? Someone that can cover your store – someone trustworthy. You don’t have to take new consignments that week and if you have to, pay consignors before you leave or when you get back.
The point is, as a resale store owner, do everything in your power to get to the 2010 NARTS Conference!
