- Visit your store once in a while
Although you have decided to operate your store remotely, never allow your staff to think that they call the shots because you do not drop by anyway. Visit your business in different times and schedules as surprise visits can generally reveal how and what your staff are doing when you are not around. When you visit, then make sure to check everything.
