Well, I am happy that I did not waste those first two days. I made a new bag with a new pattern, and have been working on doing some of the unfinished projects that remain from the previous and yes, I confess several years prior. I think I will make that my first plan for success.
1. Address past projects. I will evaluate if I really will finish the project and decide if I am not, accept it and move on. But there is no room in my craft room to hold it just in case. And I plan to do that during the month of January. If I plan to do the projects I really need to get them done within a time frame. Seriously, It will either be inventory or a gift for a family member. So, I think that a month of hard decisions will be a great beginning.
I always seem to find a distraction that is not sewing. I always feel like I do not have enough inventory to really succeed at the events that I attend. My last event was amazing. I sold half of the inventory dollars that I had. HALF! I felt amazing. And I want to feet that way more. So, my second resolution is to get that feeling more.
2. Attend more events in 2016. That is really going to make me have to sew and build inventory. 2015 was two events. 2016 will be 5. Wow! Just to type the number makes me get nervous. I have to stop standing in my own way. By making it my mission to move into the success factor, I know that I can get to the point that I will be making enough sales to cover all my expenses with sales and be able to build savings to get closer to doing this full time.
My last mission to build success is to get my store and my easy store full of inventory. This is probably one of the biggest ways I stand in my own way. I get things done and then move on without taking the time to take the picture and post on the pages.
3. Post new product every week. I will be able to see my progress and be able to get new product in front of my customers faster.
I plan to make ten resolutions for my personal life. And I think the first five will be the same as they have always been (lose weight, workout more, you know the drill!) but the last five are going to be amazing, Now to end this blog and figure them out.
Happy New Year to all my friends and family!
