Change is just a part of life, but when it comes to the internet and working online, I dislike anything to change. That is because I am slow to pick up on changes in technological stuff and my mind balks at the thought. Those of us who work at Zazzle have been informed that there will be a consolidation of our stores and we will be signing in using e-mail. I know this will mean adjusting to new things, and although it doesn’t sound so bad – actually it will be a good thing and SHOULD make life easier for us – I always have my doubts.
At one point, for some reason, my SS# had disappeared from one of my stores’ account section and by the time I had re-added it, my payment info had been disrupted enough that I had to wait an extra month to be paid from that store. Since we get paid once a month at Zazzle, that is a long wait.
I’ve long believed that the most successful people (shops) at the Zazzle site are run by more than one person. It’s a lot to do all by yourself. I have heard many people talk about their partnerships with a spouse or kids or whoever, and many times there is someone else involved. For instance, I have had to learn it all as an older person who never took graphic design classes or even has a college degree. It has taken me years to figure out what some people have in the spouse sitting next to them, or the son who does graphic design. And I’ve done it because I simply had to, to be able to improve and sell more. It’s my living and I have no choice. So I’ll learn to deal with all the new changes that take place and it will all work out. I won’t have to worry about having a stagnant mind in my old age. There will always be new things go learn when it comes to working online.
