But, alas, the bank account calls! So, I need to get back to work. I recently started to follow a great blog by fellow northwesterner, Jena Coray, called Modish Biz Tips — a spin-off of her main blog, Modish, covering beautifully designed handmade goods. Modish Biz Tips has been a great source of inspiration in terms of keeping the fire going to run a small craft business, a not always easy feat. But on Friday I found a great post waiting for me in my Reader. Jena offered her followers a way to find some accountablility to kick our butts into gear - a Monthly Goal Meetup!
The idea: on the first Friday of every the month, post business goals to your own blog for that month, then post a comment on MBT with a link to the post. The following first Friday we will all check in and hopefully what we will find is a bunch of crossed off list items and fresh ones to take their place! I love it... This is just what I need.
SO, here it goes, I am committing. My TO DO LIST for APRIL 2009:
- Create a blog editorial schedule;
- Create an image template for blog posts;
- Start going to the studio every Monday to print (starting next week!);
- Create an annual product release schedule
- Flush out six new wedding suite designs.
