If I crafted every day....would I still enjoy it as much if I depended on it for my livelihood?
I imagine that if I were able to make a sustainable wage from crafting, I would be at a point where my products were more than my custom albums....like having my own product line.
So today's how do you know question is:
"How do I know I can't be the next Martha Stewart?"
I mean, honestly....this woman now has a product line available in all major craft stores AND she has a new pet product line! All things she loves....and she's figured out how to make a living from it.
So what's my first step in all of this?
Well, I'm going to have to take a step way back to the beginning --- to before launching my business....
I need to first actually write a business plan for my company! Can you believe I never did this? I literally opened my company for the tax incentive/benefit of being able to charge clients and write off business expenses.
I need to seriously sit down and figure out what my vision, mission, and goals are for my company. I have a lot of ideas for things I want to do, but I need to really flesh out my direction and strategy for achieving them.
During the month of February, I will start off by determining my vision, my mission and my top 3 goals. Ha! Let's see if 1 month is enough time to narrow down my thoughts.
