#FirstSales; I Challenge: 13 March 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

My plan to succeed in this challenge varies a little for both businesses.

For SMC, the challenge is in coming up with attractive designs that would pique people’s interest in making a purchase.

I plan to sharpen my Photoshop/design skills in order to create attractive t-shirt designs. I don’t think I can wait for my husband to enter school together. I’m better off diving into a Photoshop or graphic design course using MySkillsFuture credit to enhance my design skills.

For SG, the challenge is in securing a long-term supply relationship with clients.

I plan to ask local food businesses regarding their interest in having us supply them microgreens. I will start with one today, ask two more tomorrow, and then ask three the day after and so on. My concern is if I’ll run out of places to enquire. If I do, that will only mean Singapore is not ready for mass consumption of microgreens.

I have nothing to lose. If I’m not successful, I will not count it as a waste of my time and energy. In fact, I will be proud to have tried.

All the best to me.

I Challenge: First Sales

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

I know I am going to be super busy with my family for the next two weeks but I am feeling really upset right now and I think taking up a challenge to work on will make a good distraction.

I just don’t want to get too deep into my feelings right now. I just rather work.

So my #FirstSales challenge is to successfully sell a t-shirt for SMC and a tray of microgreens for SG.

I find that goal to be realistic. The challenge won’t just end there. The end game for the challenge is to eventually meet my #NH21 goals that I have set for both businesses.

But I’m not going to get ahead of myself just yet. I’m going to keep the focus on getting my very first sale for each business first.

Then, we’ll talk more.
