February Goals Review

February was another great month in the world of Memories for Life!


One of the things I am most proud of is that I've been creating and adding lots of new designs to my shop!
I blogged about my Wall Words in February and finally got my first set listed on Etsy. These have been very well received and I'm so excited to see a new product do well :)
I'm also focusing more and more in wedding items. Weddings are a big market and I have SO much to offer in this category! Look for many new things in the wedding department :)
Here's how the month turned out:
Blog Goals:
I am far exceeding my goal of blogging 3-5 times per week. In February I blogged 27 times...only missing 2 days the whole month!
As for followers, I want to reach 325 by the end of the year. That is an average of 6-7 followers per month...and I only have 5 new followers for all of 2012. Falling short here...but lots of time to make that up :)
Shop Goals:
For this typically being the "slow time" on Etsy, I can't believe my shop is staying so busy! I really contribute this to all the new ideas I've been coming up with and the variety my shop has to offer :)
My goal is to average a sale a day in 2012. In February I had 28 sales...only one short of my goal! How exciting!
And my goal is to have 750 shop hearts by the end of 2012. That is about 11-12 new hearts per month. In February, I had 17 new shop hearts...another great accomplishment!
Other Business Goals:
Nothing new to share in the advertising area. Still working on that one!
I purchased some inventory software that I'm hoping will help me stay more organized. I'll be blogging about that soon to give my far so good :)
And I did send some samples of fundraiser options to the local Booster Club. They really liked the samples, but they don't have a specific idea in mind for them yet. I may go ahead and send fliers to other schools and see what happens.
Personal Goals:
I'm still doing great with my jogging. I didn't jog 5 days every week like I wanted to, to Feb. was a busy month! I have increased my mph on the treadmill and am only .2 mph away from my goal. Now I need to start adding longer jogs at the same mph to reach my goal. I'm so ready to get outside and jog!
I am also really happy about our personal finances! I paid off one loan and only have one payment left on another! In order to quit my full-time job, our personal finances need to be in order. This just gets me one step closer to my make that my DREAM! And the online bill pay is working really well too!
How is 2012 shaping up for you? Leave me a comment and let me know :)
