Sometimes it’s the little things that can make all the difference, a tweak here, a nudge there, or a complete light bulb moment! We asked some of our favourite brands what their top tips are for working smarter and not harder!

What is your top tip to work smarter and not harder as a creative entrepreneur?

My top tip to other creators would be to work in batches. Get more work done in less time, and perform a repetitive task only once in a while. That way you save a lot of time, which you can use for other important tasks!
As an entrepreneur, you need the attitude of an athlete to keep going on. Work hard learning what you don't know, being patient and conscious about the process of growing your business. Take your time to take a deep breath for feeling confident and brave. Enjoying the wind in your face when you are overtaking and being aware that when you fall, you stand up to finish the race, knowing that you will be stronger tomorrow. You don't give up. Try it again and don't wait for perfection to leap at a chance.
Don't be afraid to 'say goodbye' to products that don’t sell. They distract your focus and that of the customer as well ánd bring your overall collection down. Remove them, so that your shop is running on only bestselling items. Saying goodbye once in a while, will free time and energy to work on future projects that need some extra focus.
Remember that everything takes time! It takes time to grow, and eventually, you will get there. Unfortunately, there is no cookie-cutter formula on how or where to start. However, if and when necessary, ask for help! When I started my own company, I was not ready for it. I had no choice at the time, so I had to start, but if I had more time to plan out what I wanted, it would have been so much easier.
