Business Goals for 2013

I usually do not share my resolutions.  Since I don’t stick to them, I thought I would take a different approach.

By sharing my goals for Vintage Restyled, I am looking for accountability and a clear path. 

1. Participate in shows – this is a carry over from 2012.  I did my very first show in October and loved it.  I enjoyed interacting with customers and getting feedback and meeting blog followers. I will do a show in May and again in the fall.

2. Host Barn Sales – My plan is to host 2-3 Barn Sales.  I am considering adding vendors and will certainly have it on a Saturday this time!

3. Custom Work – I have done custom projects since I started painting 2+ years ago.  I shied away from this because I put too much pressure on myself.  After completing many projects in 2012 I realized with good communication and realistic pricing and turn around time, I really enjoyed it.  I am looking for ways to promote this part of my biz.

4. Blogging – A lot of effort goes into putting out 5 posts a week.  I follow some that do 10+ a week.  I don’t know how they do it!  I will continue to share projects and DIY tips on a weekly basis.  You may see more home projects, as I plan to focus on our new pad.

5.Heritage Square Antique Mall – In the two years that I have been at HSAM, I have worked hard, neglected it, tried managing 2 booths, shared a booth with a friend…  It seems we have tried it all.  While I cannot commit to being a vendor for the entire year, I am recommitting to my booth.  I plan to work it on a weekly basis as I have done in the past.  I also plan to work with a focus and style it accordingly.

When I look back on 2012, Growth is the word that comes to mind.  I pushed myself to try larger projects and to grow as a person.  I opened in Delaware and Tuttle and grew as a business professional.  I branched out and participated in a show and hosted a barn sale.  I learned something from every decision I made.

I know now that I want to grow in my work, not in the size of my business.  I want to continue to learn and push myself creatively. 

I hope you’ll stick around and follow along on my 2013 journey!
