2013...More of the same

Once a month, members of the EtsyMetal team are given a topic or question and then are requested to blog about it simultaneously. This month's topic is:
New Year's Resolutions?!
A new year, a fresh outlook, new ideas... what are your plans? New goals? New disciplines? Old disciplines and goals you want to try again?!! Recap this past year and what you've learned, where it's taken you, where you would like it to take you in 2013.

This topic reminds me of a the New Year's post I wrote 4 years ago--- "looking BACK so I can look AHEAD...2008 to 2009."    It seems silly to say, but, WOW! Times were different then---in my personal life and in my business! So much has changed in those 4 years!

But I digress, I'm not here to talk about how things have changed in 4 years.

2012 was overall a good year for me---different but good. You can read about it here: "ch-ch-changes..."

Many of my business goals for 2013 are to continue what I started in 2012.

  • Continue to develop and promote my Make your own Wedding Band Workshops
    • Continue to develop my new Ridge Collection
    • Continue to develop my bridal line
    • Continue to "clean out" my older work (Selling it off and then discontinuing it)
    • Implement marketing tools and techniques that I learned in 2012 (psyched!)
    • Get more organized!
    • Learn new skills---this year I'd like to learn CAD
    • Try to make a Brooch-a-Week for the whole year (yikes!) Follow my progress here.
    Ridge Earring #7: Sterling, 18k gold, blue chalcedony, diamonds

    My personal goals are also to continue what I started in 2012.
    • Spend more quality time with my family
    • Get more organized!
    • Continue on my fitness journey (I've lost 30 lbs in the past year, gained muscle and am in the best shape of my life at the ripe old age of "over 40"!)
