happy monday all! i hope you had a lovely weekend. saturday was a gorgeous 70 degrees and my husband took the girls to the park. sunday, it was snowing. typical spring in colorado. the snow is actually good because we need the moisture. i am thinking of planting my very first vegetable garden this year even though i have no idea what i am doing. colorado gardens are finicky so i am crossing my fingers.
feeling a little bit frustrated this week. i spent a ton of time recording video for my e-course last week and now i can’t get any of the videos off my phone. hopefully my geek of a husband can get it worked out. otherwise, looks like i will just have to start over on those videos.
goal setting has been on my mind a lot lately. i have been amazed at how simply making a goal can actually open doors for it to happen. it is strange actually. in fact, i have had several goals come true without doing the work to get there. don’t get me wrong, i think it is important to have a plan to accomplish your goals. but sometimes, things just happen without any planning whatsoever.
with that being said, i thought it was time to set some bigger and loftier goals. i have somewhat outgrown the ones from last year. good problem to have i suppose. it is time to set my goals even higher. so here goes:
goal # 1- get my art licensed. this goal seems totally crazy to me. i have no idea how to make it happen either. i guess this is a somewhat controversial thing for many artists. but i think it would be awesome and i would love to not be in charge of the production side of products.
goal # 2- hire my own assistant to do all of the things i don’t want to do, packing, organizing (that sort of thing). wouldn’t that be awesome? this is definitely a ways down the road, but hey a girl can dream.
goal # 3- attend one of those large national art shows (like CHA) and actually have some of my art in a booth.
goal # 4- get paid to do what i love best, creating. i know this one sounds a little obvious, but it is true.
goal # 5- write a book about my story and how art has become my therapy after suffering from a brain injury.
goal # 6- meet some of my favorite artists in real life. i had a dream that i met kelly rae roberts and it was a great dream.
so there you go. some of my lofty business goals. just putting them out there. because you never know what will happen.
