because they like to eat chocolate, so when I was a child grew up to be able to open their own chocolate shop, chance coincidence, I really realized a childhood dream. Now, I own a chocolate shop, imported chocolate and domestic chocolate have, recently also want to do DIY chocolate, is a relatively new industry. My wife is doing a clothing store, I still have a little experience in the shop. The following to share with you in the process of setting up some of the insights as the boss should have some ideas, we hope that common progress, said the wrong, we correct.
A, the boss to learn to listen, learn to analyze
either in the same industry, the same industry or not, whether employees, or their families, will give you some of his ideas, views and opinions. Sometimes these ideas, though not entirely correct, may be misleading, you have to wait for someone else’s advice, learn to listen, learn to analyze. They often view objectively, they will tell you: you are not placed in the corner; in fact, customers love nice packaging of imported chocolate; the family will tell you, first from the shop to start, don’t invest too much, so you earn money for rent and water and electricity charges management fees and support. A person’s ability is limited, good bad, always represent their views. When they get involved in a new industry, blind business, it is better to learn from some professional methods, skills.
two, and your good supplier
for the owner, the supplier is equal to you please the clerk, the boat can capsize. Sometimes we can easily think: because they are from where you purchase, you are God; so you can like some of your customers, are eligible to do whatever they want, not only for thanksgiving. You must keep a good relationship with them. For example, there are new products, they will tell you in advance; when the shortage of goods, will first consider you; even when you are short of money can be shipped, after the money. A good supply of suppliers, is absolutely the arm of your business.
three, we must work with
order of priority
do have weight, pay attention to clear things slow, anxious, light and heavy processing how to judge things slow, then from the analysis of the emergency? Things not dealing with future consequences. For example: utilities did not pay, Dove chocolate no center, store posters out of date, the day after tomorrow is Valentine’s day how to do publicity stores. I own a chocolate shop, imported chocolate and domestic chocolate have, in recent days also want to do DIY chocolate, is a relatively new industry. My wife is doing a clothing store, I still have a little experience in the shop. The following to share with you in the process of setting up some of the insights as the boss should have some ideas, we hope that common progress, said the wrong, we correct.
