Where am I going in 2013? No idea...but I have a few thoughts for the first quarter:
1. Be more visible in social media
I'm not just talking about Twitter & Facebook. I think those are strong areas for me actually. In 2013, I'm getting off my site a bit & reaching out to other bloggers. That will mean commenting more on other blogs that I like/love & forming a plan on others to approach as media partner.
2. Be more visible on the market scene
2012 was great at confirming what I thought in the back of my head all along - my cards will sell well in person. It was tough to get started, but I think I might be hooked. Connecting with your customers, hearing & seeing what they like on your table is THE BEST feedback that I can get. AND!! It drives online sales, duh.
3. Learn it, love it, letterpress it
First quarter is about 2 things - picking some spring markets & getting to know my new letterpress.
I wish I could layout the whole year for you right here, right now. Past the 3 things I've mentioned above, I'm kinda stuck. For the first time I do not want to set goals for the year. In the past, those goals have gotten me to February or maybe March. Then I tend to forget them or loose track of how I'm keeping them going all year. That makes setting them feel pointless & like I'm setting myself up for failure.
This year, I'm setting goals/plans by quarter. I need smaller bites...
