Learn How to Go from Being the Little Guy to Big Guy

Business, career, motivation, routine, Success, Tips

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 05:31:53 +0000

Sometimes in life we find ourselves being stuck in the hamster wheel of routine and habit. We often find ourselves doing things that aren’t good for us, remain where we wish we weren’t, and put ourselves through unnecessary suffering all in the name of comfort. The best people are those who are constantly challenging themselves, setting targets and escaping this tedious state of mind. Are you thinking of applying for that big promotion your workplace currently has available? Perhaps you are the newbie of the office and you’re looking for a way to impress your colleagues? Or maybe you want to learn how to successfully elevate your career? Whatever your reasons, in order to go from the little guy to the big guy you have to earn respect through hard work, professionalism, dedication, and a can-do attitude. Commit yourself to adapting these following business tips and soon your efforts will start to pay off: Quit Stopping They say that at the very moment you want to quit, you’re almost there. We go so far and then our brains take over telling us that the task is indeed too difficult. Whether that task is work, relationship or fitness related, you need to be 100% focused on completing that said task. If you keep stopping, that task will have consumed more work and time needed.  Surrender Tomorrow If you’re a person who regularly says “I will do that tomorrow” and tomorrow never comes, you need to surrender your tomorrows. When people are delaying tasks or are too busy procrastinating it usually means that they’re too scared to start because it means their life will change or they want the end goal for all the wrong reasons. Motivate Yourself If you’re waiting for other people to encourage you to go after your goals, you’re failing to show that you want success or are putting yourself on the path to find it. You must motivate yourself to learn and expand your skill set. The more knowledgeable you become, the more valuable you become to yourself and potential employees. Quality Over Quantity You should never confuse activity with results. Your performance should positively impact your company directly, therefore you must strive to be a pivotal piece in your company’s growth. To produce tangible results: procrastinate less and work constructively. Method and Management There are three main characteristics every great influencer possesses: a passion for work, a desire to become a crucial piece in his or her company’s advancement, and a determination to see projects through to completion. You must adapt these characteristics by having a clear and concise plan which prioritizes actions. Welcome Criticism All feedback, whether good or bad, should be taken into consideration. You should gladly receive all feedback and make the changes needed to improve yourself. By doing so, you will grow as a person and your career will heighten. Never Admit Defeat At no time should you lie to your co-workers. To admit that you are wrong shows real professionalism. You must openly admit your mistakes and offer solutions to these problems. It is essential that you strive to master tasks and never quit when the going gets tough.

Because most people judge a product by its packaging, any mediocre product packed in a fancy package would win against a great product in weak packaging. Instead of cutting corners companies are actually going beyond the conventional ‘shoe box’ by putting more time and thought when it comes to the overall customer experience. The designs you will see today are very well executed, interesting, and are the epiphany of thinking outside the box. We hope they’ll spark some neurons and deliver some good ol’ inspiration. Enjoy!

30 Eye-Popping Retail Store Layouts

Industrial, creative, design, Inspiration, layout, retail, store

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 05:50:59 +0000

A well layed out store can have a huge impact on sales. But getting there is easier said than done. To have a successful interior layout you have to tell your brand’s story, create an immersive experience, have eye-catching window displays, and focus on every tiny detail possible. You want to create a space where customers feel welcomed and comfortable. All of these tiny goals take countless hours of planning and strategizing, but in the end they’re totally worth it. When it comes to creating effective retail interiors, smart design decisions make a significant difference. For example, having a free-flowing layout gives merchants opportunities to spur impulse buying. You also don’t want to have a tall counter. Why? Because it creates an “us vs. them” mentality and sends the wrong signals. Continuously people may not be aware of this, but everybody knows that your subconscious mind is always at work. Another well know fact is that more than 90 percent of customers will turn to the right as soon as they enter a store. Therefore you should utilize this opportunity by placing a high impact display showcasing your newest, hottest, and best products. Enticing and arousing your customer’s attention at this time can make a significant difference in regards to whether you make a sale or not. A common theme you will find among the store layouts listed below is that they don’t force you down a narrow alley. Instead, they have large open spaces which create a much more comfortable shopping experience. It gives customers some room to breath and avoids the “butt-brush effect.” This term was coined by consumer behavious expert Paco Underhill. He discovered that typical customers, especially women, will avoid going after merchandise in an aisle where they could potentially brush another customer’s backside or have their backside brushed. Here are a few more short and sweet tips to keep in mind: Reduce your inventory losses by keeping shelves low enough to enable good visibility. Create a sensational entrance that will woo shoppers. Have a counter that’s big enough for shoppers to place their bags and/or personal belongings. Create interesting and engaging displays on the wall behind the counter. Encourage last-minute purchases by stocking items customers commonly need close-by. Encourage customers to spend more time in your store by incorporating some type of waiting area with comfy seats. Place merchandise outposts throughout the store to encourage impulse buying. Today we collected thirty beautiful examples of retail store layouts for you to check out. We hope the following examples will bring some nutritious inspiration to fellow shop owners. Enjoy!
