2011 Goals

Well, 2010 is rapidly coming to a close and its time for a quick look back, and to plan for the future. Today marks my one year "etsyversary". I set a small goal for myself after a VERY slow start to selling online. My goal was to sell one item a week, or 52 items total. I met and surpassed that goal and made 57 online sales. I also made another couple dozen sales to friends, family, and at craft shows. I did 2 craft shows this past year, with one being classified as an absolute learning experience!! It was an awful show other wise, but I gained a lot of information, and my next show was much more successful.

So my goals for 2011 are a little loftier.
1.  I would like to double my Etsy sales to 104 for the year. Thats essentially 2 a week, or 8 a month. In those terms it seems much less daunting.

2.  Participate in at least 4 craft shows. This will really help get my name out in my local community, not just the online community. There is one I wanted to do this year, but couldn't find how to apply. Well, I know what I need to do now to participate so that's one show down. And it will be back in North Carolina, at the beach I usually go to with my girlfriends. So It will be an awesome opportunity to get back together with my girlfriends who I will be moving away from shortly.

3.  My goals for creating products is a tough one. I will say that I need to dedicate 5 hours a week to product creation only. This can always be changed as my life changes. Right now, I may not be working after wednesday for the next few weeks, to months!!! Scary thought, but our life is in major flux and all I can do is roll with the punches. So I can use it as an opportunity to create like crazy.

More goals and ideas will surely come as the year rolls on and I enter a new phase of my life.

Good Luck to all in 2011!!!!
