Hello, October! I am so excited that the weather is finally cooling off. I actually wore pants yesterday, PANTS! October brings with it harvest festivals, pumpkin picking and lots of family fun and outdoor activities. My kids have school break next week and I'm taking a vacation from work to spend much needed quality time with them. I am very much looking forward to our "staycation".
All right, now that all my excitement is out of the way, I can get down to my Meet Up biz goals. I swear I was busy the whole month of September however, I am not able cross anything off my list - not one thing! Why is that? I think my goals last month were just not in line with what I was actually doing. So, what was I actually doing? Well, I started a second job teaching drawing 3 times a week and with that lost 6 hours a week that I had set aside for Creative Stash. In addition, I have been working on a freelance website and picked up a logo design client. September marks my little boy's 4th birthday and my wedding anniversary so, we had a lot of celebrating to do. I also decided at the last minute to set up a table this week at a local craft sale for the first time in 4 years so, I have had some work to do to get extra stuff made, booth displays, signage and handful of updated biz cards.
So, for October I decided to really think about which goals I need to work on for the upcoming holiday and save some of the longer term goals for later. I also need to add a bit more balance into my schedule so I'm posting 4 biz goals and 4 personal goals for this month.
- web site client
- logo design client
- promote custom magnets for the holidays
- promote monthly sale & test out renewing Etsy items daily
- family staycation - woo hoo!
- make Halloween decorations - kids want more spooky stuff!
- reacquaint myself with the gym
- cook up some real food not all the processed stuff we've been eating lately (I blame it on coupons!)
