New year, new things



Well, it's a new year and you know what that means.  Lots of inspiration, energy, enthusiasm.  And then it's Jan 2nd and I'm all fizzled out.  I don't know why we put pressure on ourselves to turn a new leaf on January 1st.  What happens the rest of the year? 

This year I didn't make any resolutions.  Because I still had some leftover from last year, and when I think about it... I am making resolutions all the time!

I have a few that I've been working on for a while now.

I resolve to set up and use Quickbooks regularly.
I resolve to write my business plan.
I resolve to get my new website up and running.
I resolve to get 10 more wholesale accounts this year.

Whew, I'm tired just thinking about these.  But at the same time I'm excited now matter how much Math (Qbooks) and Writing (business plan) make me want to fall asleep!

And of course my resolutions include working on increasing my line.  I've got some new designs making their debut for Valentine's Day.  Then Mother's Day.  Then Spring.  And so on.  And so on.  New Years will come and go.  But resolutions go on forever.

What are your resolutions??

enjoyed your blog post - this year I'm continuing on some goals instead of making resolutions, but they're "secret" heehee

Great post, and good luck with your goals! I avoid making resolutions like the plague so made some goals too, but that was 10 days ago and I haven't even started any of them yet :)

Good luck with your resolutions.
My main one is to have a full studio set up at home (and always more sales and items). There, I said it, now I HAVE to do it.
