Fresh Start

I Hope everyone brought in the New Year right.  I went to dinner with a college friend and hit the casinos.  I don't think it counts if you don't gamble though!  Plus, getting home at 10:30 reassures me I am completely lame.  Anyways, I don't know about you but I am stoked about the New Year.  

  • I am finally going to take the Dream Job E-Course from Red Velvet.  I opened my Etsy shop a year ago (a goal of mine for 2011), but now it's time to buckle down and get serious.  
  • I ordered the Handmadeology 2.0 Bookkeeping Spreadsheet so I can be legit.  
  • I have made my lists, wrote down my goals, and am ready to get busy.  
  • I'm going to start a new series called Thrifting 101.  I can't wait to share my knowledge and some of the tricks I've learned over the many, many years of thrifting.  I hope you enjoy it!

It's always been hard for me to use outside sources for help.  I majored in Marketing and always feel like I should do this stuff myself (ie. spreadsheets, marketing, promoting).  Like, I know what needs to be done and have visions of doing it, but never seem to get it together.  Over the years (especially this last year) I have learned to let go of some of the control and look to real professionals who are doing it now.  It reminds of working out now...vs. working out in college.  It's a whole lot easier with a coach yelling profanities and chasing me around with a bullhorn.  I need that...but for business.   Wish me luck!

If you feel like doing some good this year head on over to Meet Me at Mikes and read about her Year of good things.  It's such a splendid idea.  We all need more Do Gooders!

Here's to the best year ever!
