Job stress can quickly cause individuals to become burnt out at work. It affects an individual's physical and emotional state and causes mental exhaustion. Wholesale liquidation and closeout liquidators are not immune to burnout, and according to a 2018 Gallup poll 2/3 of workers experience burnout. They will begin to feel self-conscious about their ability to manage work and what value they bring to the workplace in general. Buying and selling closeouts is challenging and those of us who sell excess inventory for a living can agree it has become a challenging and often stressful occupation.
urn out at work can extend to an individual's family life and compromises their health. No one symptom can determine job burn out as the factors that brought individuals to this point are varying. Closeout liquidators have been forced to deal with huge supply chain issues and are adapting to new ways of buying closeouts and handling the liquidation process. Companies that need to sell excess inventory often search online for closeout buyers who can help them reduce inventory and get rid of dead stock. The entire closeout process has become more challenging during the pandemic and If an individual is not respected in the workplace, or is taken for granted, this can cause strain. The pace of their work may be taking energy from them and causing tension in their body. If a workplace isn't managed properly, many colleagues may also have a negative outlook,
Most of us have days when we feel helpless, overloaded, or unappreciated—when we know we have a large closeout presentation we aren’t prepared for, or we’ve been working on a large wholesale liquidation deal that falls apart.. If you feel like this most of the time, however, you may be burned out. Liquidation companies that liquidate inventory and help other businesses with inventory closeouts are under pressure all the time to keep their supply chain moving. Overstock wholesalers are programmed to consistently buy closeouts and have new liquidation products for their customers, and this can lead to long hours and more stress. Burnout is a gradual process. It doesn’t happen overnight, but it can creep up on you. The signs and symptoms are subtle at first, but become worse as time goes on. Think of the early symptoms as red flags that something is wrong that needs to be addressed. If you pay attention and actively reduce your stress, you can prevent a major breakdown. If you ignore them, you’ll eventually burn out. Closeout wholesalers are at risk of burnout because their jobs require long hours and the wholesale liquidation business has become very competitive.
It takes work to successfully help a company sell excess inventory and make room for new products. Closeout liquidators can also help businesses shut down their 3PL warehouse or move warehouses so they have more room for new inventory. This closeout process takes time and energy because selling closeouts during the pandemic has become more demanding. When you reach a point of extreme burnout, you’re there because you’ve been overriding your body’s message to slow down and rest for too long. It sees no other way than to stop you dead in your tracks and make you listen.
It is imperative that you make the conscious decision that you are going to listen to your body, and make your health your number one priority from now on. That means calling vendors first thing in the morning to discuss their wholesale liquidation and how to sell excess inventory will have to wait. Not just until you feel a bit better so that you can get back to your ‘normal’ life… but literally from now on. This is a wake up call. It’s time for you to create some fundamental shifts in your life and prioritize your health. No more taking your health for granted… it’s time for a real change.
