lofty goal follow up
week 15 of 52 weeks: lofty goal follow up. during week 4 i shared some of my goals. my goals included: 100 sales in my etsy shop, selling my art in three little boutiques, teaching art classes, and reaching 100-200 items in my etsy shop. right now i feel like i am well on my way with all of these goals.
sales in etsy are up to 16 and i still have plenty of time to reach this goal. things have been a bit slow ever since summer started, but i am not letting this get me down. instead, i am focusing my energy on building a stronger online presence. i am building my brand through social media. and i am learning a ton by taking online classes that are helping me really understand how to better build my business.
i am still working on my plan of attack for wholesaling and getting my art into some boutiques. the number one priority for me is to get a website up and running. then i need to put together some catalogs and order form sheets. but, i now have a better understanding of all the pieces that i need before i step into the crazy world of wholesaling. and i feel like i will be prepared when i do walk through that door. yay!
now onto teaching a mixed media class… i feel like i am getting very close to accomplishing this goal. i am pretty excited about that. i just finished the altered book that will be the focus of the class. i have my material list in order and all the weeks planned out. just a few last details to iron out before i go approach some stores.
the only other goal i set for myself is reaching 100-200 items in my etsy store. i had reached 100 items in my store but then i scaled a few things back. but i should be back up at 100 in no time at all. and i am working on some new and different products to be available for purchase soon as well!
i am feeling very proud of myself for the ways in which i am tackling my goals. i am learning patience. there are days when i wish that things were going quicker, but i know that it all takes time. i am learning how to keep taking small steps every day that get me closer to all of my goals. and i can’t wait for the day when i can share even more successes with all of you. i am loving the community that i am building online and i just want to say thank you for all of the kind words of encouragement lately! they mean so much to me.
