Today I have a short list of things to think about when creating your list of goals/plans for 2013.
This list is to help with the general frame work for your plan, so it's OK to be vague in the ideas you list. Think of this list as a brainstorming guide to start your planning process.
What are your general goals? Do you want to create a new line? Double your income? Sell wholesale? Do more shows?
Review your monthly income. What months were more profitable? Why? Are there things you did one month that were better then others? Do you see any trends for next year?
Crunch your numbers, find out what did really well and what might need to be retired.
List any events, shows, vacations, and launches you would like to have in the new year.
Make a list of other makers you would like to communicate with or maybe meet in person.
It's easy to make a list of things you want to accomplish in the new year, but taking the time to brainstorm things you want to achieve will make the process of creating your goals easier.
Do you have some big plans for 2013?
