My goals this month are going to be simpler and less ambitious than my April goals were. I am finally going to heed all the signs that I can't always rush feet first into everything, no matter how badly I may want to do so. Also, I have more personal obligations this month, so I'll have less than time than usual to focus on business things. So, without further ado, my May goals are:
- Build a light tent/portable studio. If I do only one thing this month, it needs to be this. I absolutely can not continue relying on nice weather to get great product photos. Especially in Minnesota!
- Sit down with an accountant/tax advisor and talk about best practices. Solicit advice about accounting software.
- Make 6 pieces of inventory; 3 for the Etsy shop, and 3 to start a stockpile of readily available inventory. Once I feel comfortable with my on-hand inventory, I can begin approaching shops and galleries (per my April goal) about carrying my stuff.
That's it. Three simple goals for May. Plus one ghost goal: I'm still trying to get my hands on my episode of HGTV's That's Clever! So please, dear readers, if any of you happen to have a copy of the April 20 episode (#502), let me know! :)
