Goals

Modish Monthly Goal Meetup

"Soft Pink," 2009

I was bad and kind of forgot about this for the past few weeks. I guess moving around and vacation are good excuses for disorientation. Here's how I did anyway-

1. Stock up for South End Open Market (May 16 & 17). This is something I have been doing steadily but I need to speed up my efforts. I did this! And the weekend was a big success. Whew!

2. Continue reaching out to publications. Hmm...can't say I've done much of this. Must get back on it.

3. Organize/buy stuff for show displays. Yes! I'm pleased with my current set up.

So for JuNe, here goes-

1. Stock up on supplies. Why do I wait until I'm out to order more?

2. Get accounting stuff together. Something I should do on a regular basis but just have not lately.

3. Reach out to publications. Yes. Get exposed.

April Goals Revisited


I have been told it is now May so I decided to revisit my April Goals and see how I did-

1. To FOCUS on what I already have going for me product-wise. I did! I made lists and did not stray from them

2. Create a photo book to use as a portfolio of my work. Check! Thank you Blurb

3. Reach out to more publications about possibly featuring my work
(or at least research possibilities). I did this a bit but definitely will continue these efforts

4. Research online advertising options. Check, started a list with pricing stats

5. Figure out a workspace during construction
. Check, thank you parents for your entire dining room

Wow! I am pleased. So now for May...hmmm...

1. Stock up for South End Open Market (May 16 & 17). This is something I have been doing steadily but I need to speed up my efforts.

2. Continue reaching out to publications.

3. Organize/buy stuff for show displays.

Keeping it short this month, we'll see how it goes!

A Modish Monthly Goal Meetup


I think I've mentioned this before but I have become a big fan of the Modish blog spin-off Modish Biz Tips. One of today's posts suggests a monthly goal meet up-

**********

"So, this is the 1st Friday of the month. I propose that every 1st Friday of every month, we check in here with each other and announce a list of our monthly business related goals. Eh? Eh? We can meet each other and help each other meet our goals, yeah! :)"

**********

Sounds good to me! I can already feel my pre-show-season stress levels lowering. We have to come up with five so for this month, my goals are:

1. To FOCUS on what I already have going for me product-wise. I've noticed lately with the anticipation of shows starting in May, I am frequently brainstorming on new products I could come up with and hopefully sell. This is ok except that I already do have some that really work for me that I wind up neglecting. So this month, I am going to try to stick with those, build up my inventory and work on perfecting what I already have going for myself.

2. Create a photo book to use as a portfolio of my work

3. Reach out to more publications about possibly featuring my work
(or at least research possibilities).

4. Research online advertising options.

5. Figure out a workspace during construction (we are about to starting renovating our apartment and I have not as of yet determined a temporary place to set up shop).

Whew! Ok goals, see you in a month...
