Are you ever shipping pallets just small parcel?

Are you mostly shipping nationally? As much as I like Shipstation, if you don't have a large shipping volume, you might get better rates by using a shipping broker to print your labels. The shipping broker will have access to much higher discounts than if you were using your own small volume accounts through Shipstation

Totally. I was just going to make a post about
This!

I use Shipstation and the shipping is literally killing my SMB. I need to do something fast.

Ok, I'm biased because I'm voting character this year. I think a good leader empowers people to do better and come together and has an empathetic voice that connects on a human level.

why govt is taking 30 percent tax man …. ??Still a developing country and want to tax their citizens like a developed country. Just giving two shots of Covid vaccines free doesn’t mean you can charge 30% tax.

I have heard somewhere that even indirect taxes that they take through GST is enough to run the government and country… I think 10 percent tax is more than enough on all salary brackets above 10 lac in india.

I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.

All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.

How should I approach her in the upcoming year?

I currently have 10% shares in a very small f&b group owns 2 restaurant outlets.

One of them have been hit with covid and we are suffering in sales. Our director somehow don’t believe in marketing and will not budge to allocate resources to hire a personnel. Our staff are underpaid so there are no incentives for them to go beyond their SOW.

What are some of the ways to drive more sales?
