Don’t short-change your business

January 12, 2017

When I first started my plant business, Miskatonic Gardens, I felt bad about taking people’s money. I wanted to discount everything for everyone, which can beΒ BAD for business. There were a few nights that I set up at the Mangilao night market, a place where people love to haggle for goods. I can NOT haggle. I fold every time. It makes me uncomfortable to say “no” to people who are asking to pay less for my merchandise. I end up questioning myself–am I charging too much? Are my goods really not worth this price? Am I potentially getting ripped off?

It made selling to people face-to-face an unpleasant experience. Since then, I stuck more to being a distributor and selling my plants through third parties. I also deferred all of the large orders/special event inquiries to the sales manager. Disconnecting myself from the sales aspect of the business really helped to firm my resolve in pricing.

Fast-forward a couple of months. I run into a few entrepreneur friendsΒ in different scenarios that result in me using their services or buying their product. But each time, they discounted the services and goods for me, just for being a friend.

tl;dr don’t half-ass your dreams

June 9, 2015

I’d like to say that the spirit of entrepreneurship is alive within me, and I’ve been fostering it since my high school days. My first attempt at creating a “business” was a tech repair shop circa 2008 that specialized in tiny gadget repair and modification such as iPods and iPhones, PSPs, game consoles, laptops and PCs. It was named–and I’m embarrassed to admit–skyPod Electronics. I charged little to nothing for the repairs and shamelessly plugged my services into a variety of free outlets including MySpace, Guam Chat, and Craigslist.
