Good day to you 2012
We've got a running list of things we'd like to change in the new year, we've been talking about it and tweaking it here and there for the last few months.
This last semester has been a bit of a doozy and both of us are hoping that we can make this next year a little easier on ourselves.
Professionally I need to make some changes.
(I KNOW that you hear this from me pretty regularly...)
I am constantly trying new things to make Janamade more productive, more interesting, more profitable...this is the biggest challenge for me. I am not entrepreneurial. I mean I AM, as I have a home based business, but I guess what I am saying is that I have not the best head for business. I am creative, happily so, but I have not been able to wrap my head around the practical end of things.
I need to work with someone I think. Or at least try some new angles to get things rolling maybe!
So I am working on a redesign of the website, the online shop and my manifesto.
WHAT IS IT THAT I DO really??
WHY DO I DO IT?
WHAT DO I OFFER?
These questions are rolling around in my noodle a lot these days.
So, for January my goals are these:
Get a small package of jewellery to each of my store connections.
It doesn't have to be huge, just a few pieces to get me out there again.
Get a Troop of Creatures out into the world.
This will make sense later.
I am not preggers.
Set up a Big Cartel shop??? Potential.
Reopen the Etsy shop for real. The single Bird Bangle that's in there now is a little lonely.
Carve out some regular studio time.
This will likely be evenings once The Kid is asleep. Toddler hands do not make for productive workmates.
Regular posting! WHAAAT? Oh I know, I'll believe it when I see it too!
But I am going to try for once a week.
We'll see how it all comes together!
Good luck 2013, I have faith that we can make you a good year!
