Sorry to have been away, something really awful got hold of me and wouldn't let go all week. I am still on the mend, but at least I am back moving around in the world! Jess over at Epheriell Designs has invited a handfull of blogs to participate in a little year end hop. Topic: Creative Goals and Dreams for 2011.I thought this would be a really easy thing to write about. I know EXACTLY what I want out of my business, right? Well, turns out it is a bit more tricky than first thought. I have never been a good long term planner. My husband and I think we are the best team in the world because he does the long term, and I am the daily tasks master who can make the small, add up to the big. If you have picked up any of my ebooks, you have likely already caught on to this little tidbit about me. However, today and more deeply at the end of the month, I am going to challenge myself to take a look at the 2011 landscape as a whole. My heart will beat a little faster. I will be inclined to say, 'oh I don't have to worry about that now'. Yet, I am going to move forward, because that is what a grown up business owner does, right?? Ok, I know the answer is yes! :) I am excited about seeing my life and business through a wider lens. I have some deep digging to do on this topic yet, but here are a few highlights.
1. Make every decision asking myself "Is this right for my brand"?
2. Get the books in order. I am ready to face that I can't do EVERYTHING all the time. I am so ready to outsource the bookeeping.
3. Allow myself the time to explore different creative outlets. I want, need, am dying to paint. So why don't I just do it already?!
That kicks off the list. At the end of the year, I will asses fully, and come back to you with the highlights. I hope you will do the same! Be sure to stop by Trish Alan Designs today as well for her 2011 goals!
