Monday: Subject Matter Expert
Have you ever had one of those days when you just screw up. Welcome to my last week Sunday.
I was mad at myself for this… The yellow is suppose to be white. UGHHHHHH
If you’ve followed my blog for a while, I have mentioned that I create personalized dog collars. Well, Shyloh, wanted a new collar.
It’s a great vibe collar with a yin-yang. I created the layout, programmed the machine, and started stitching.
You know what I did… I broke my rule. I walked away from the machine before double checking the stitch color. By the time I walked back to the machine, less than one minute, I noticed my error. And I couldn’t fix it.
I was out of blank blue collars so I needed to ship it. Today, I received the replacement blank and I was able to recreate it…
This time I did it the right way… well, here’s fun twist.
Do you remember my post Episode 593 – How I Saved 50% by Listening to My Gut – But I’m Still Hungry? I wrote about my drama in trying to buy new back drops for taking photos of my products. I plan to revamp my website and update the look on my Instagram.
Well… LOOK! I was able to use Shyloh’s collar and photograph it with the new backgrounds.
This is important because the design of a yin-yang is a great example of my “cute design upsell”
I like to mention my failure, past and update on Subject Matter Expert day because it’s important to keep up your skills and continually improve.
It’s easy to stay complacent. Especially with technical and design skills. I mean look at the black background collar. It’s fine. It works. It features the product nicely.
But look at the color backgrounds. They give Shyloh’s collar an entirely different vibe. The store has a fun, hip, vibe… and as a result your dog will be hip and fun.
Today, elevate your skill level. Look for that class, read your magazine, take a seminar. It’s easy to be stale… but the group your leading needs your best.
Tomorrow… come back for my episode “Content & Consistency”!
