Efficiency & Organising your Work Load

Organisation list

An organisation list is a handy way of staying on track. This will help you prioritise products that are low on stock, products that need to be ready for up and coming launches and any product development that needs to be completed. 

To efficiently do this whilst keeping up with order demands, your list can look a little something like:

  • Products and scents that are low on stock
  • Urgent top up scents (these are the products required to complete orders)
  • Supplies, have an adjacent list of what ingredients are required, how much will be used and what will be left over (this will help you order more in before you run out)
  • Launches, get ahead if you have a quiet moment by starting to prepare these in advance
  • Product development, this can simply be trying new scents for future products and launches
  • Problem solving. Don't forget that you will inevitably experience "hiccups" along the way, so if you have any time left in your day/week, use it wisely to find solutions to any issues with your products.

It's always satisfying checking off tasks. It gives us a sense of accomplishment and encourages us to keep expanding our knowledge and experience. However don't leave out those tasks you rather not do.

Problem solving

This is an important side task that should always be factored into your working week. And yes, it can be time consuming, especially if you are not aware of how to solve any issues, but allow yourself to do this. Quite often we have a tendency to put off the tasks we're not too sure about how to complete.

But in business this could result in you missing out on opportunities to sell your products to customers that are hopeful to purchase off of you again.
