January Wrap

There are a lot of different ways to define success. I’m not exactly sure if I was successful following the 30 Day Challenge, but I definitely feel like there were some successes because of it.

Pinterest has started to generate traffic, like it or not, so once I get Etsy going again the combination of the two could be very good. I’ve started gaining followers on Instagram that just find me of their own accord. And I finally was able to wrap up the Facebook Follow Giveaway.

I took time to think about goals, I signed up to be part of craft events as a vendor I might not have otherwise, and I really looked at and read about different ways to make my business more successful this year. I didn’t push my boundaries too much, but I could very well be doing another round of this challenge in the future.

Overall, it was worth my time and a very good thing to have run across.

Of course, now all I will really think about for the next couple weeks is Valentine’s day… because I am still a florist. Hopefully I will manage to push myself to continue to do both. The next three days I have off and I’m going to do my best to write Tool Thursdays for the month and perhaps some Monday posts.

Beyond Valentine’s, I have Gardens and Gears on the 21st, which I did actually start making the mask I sketched to wear. So far it is looking pretty neat. I should also figure out what else I am wearing, besides a corset. I don’t think February is going to be the best month for the business, but my “day job” will more than cover.

How is the month looking for everyone out there?

  1. You set out to finish the challenge and you got through the whole thing even if you didn’t do certain days. You decided to skip those particular topics, not I forgot to do it and now I just give up. That’s an important distinction.

    Rest of the month hopefully looks better than the Blazer deciding reverse is for wimps.
