"Always keep an open mind."
What I have learned in my years of corporate retail is that it is easy to get complacent after years of service especially when you are having a hard time making goals or quotas. The best advice I can give in these instances is to step outside of your own box and try to inspire your self to try new and creative ways to make your goals.... This not only is exciting and enjoyable to the staff but it creates a community of customers and staff alike who are excited to come to your store just to pay a visit sometimes which ultimately leads to more sales.....but the most important part of keeping an open mind is it always allows for a refreshing look on the Same issues we all face in corporate retail but it keeps you from becoming bitter defeatist and complacent which is the biggest store killer of all.
