So today my latest stock order arrived. Since I started running my art as a business in 2017 I have gradually needed to learn business skills. I have been over generous on orders of prints and cards previously.
Now I am improving and starting to feel that I have more of a business idea now as I look to move from a hobby business to one that makes more sense financially. I am lucky that I had some savings to start myself off.
My use of skills with IT means that all of my stock is recorded in an Excel spreadsheet and this helps keeping an eye on things much easier.
Nothing earth shattering in what I have said here. I do find the use of Excel makes my life a lot simpler than some friends who don’t seem to know what stock they have or haven’t go.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4104-61094bc118f0c' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4104&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4104-61094bc118f0c' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4104-61094bc118f0c'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
