April Goals Review

April was an amazing month for Memories for Life! I never imagined I could be this busy! There were several highlights this month.

*I was featured on the front page for the first time ever! And not once, but twice!

* I sold my first set of Wood Wedding Invitations...and my second and third!
*My Carved Tree Guest Book was featured at the first Etsy Wedding Event!!!
*I am THIS close to being able to quit my job!!! I had set a goal of January 2013, but I have a feeling it's going to happen much sooner :)

Blog Goals:
I sort of felt like my blogging was slipping this past month. But looking back, I blogged 27 times in April...only 3 days short of a full month. I gained 7 new followers this month taking me to 268. Welcome and Thank You to all my new followers :)

Shop Goals:
Every month, my shop amazes me at what it is capable of! I thought last month's record of 47 sales was pretty awesome. But April's 70 sales blew March out of the water!!! My goal was to have one sale a day on average and at 70 sales, that is more than 2 per day!!! I'm still a little in shock to be honest!
I'm also almost to my year-end goal for shop admirers! I gained 49 new admirers in April bringing my total to 715 against my year-end goal of 750! I may reach this goal by the end of May!!!

Personal Goals:
Jogging has officially been put on hold. I can't keep lying to myself saying I'm going to find time right now. I'm basically working two full-time jobs right now and I just can't seem to set aside the time for exercise. I have changed my eating habits and this has seemed to help a little. I'm definitely in no shape to be putting on a swimming suit, but that's why they make cover-ups, right :)

And in case you missed my post...I got my diamond this month as well. It wasn't really one of my goals for the year, but it has been something on my "wish list" for quite some time. I still can't stop staring at it :)

I hope to be back next month with more great news about my shop and maybe even some super exciting news about scrapbooking and lasering full-time! Keep your fingers crossed :)

How did your April go? Are your goals on track? Have you set your goals for May? It's never too late to start setting monthly or year-end goals :)


  1. I am so proud of your for all of your sales successes Edi! And you know, personal goals will fall in line once you get your work life straightened out.

  2. Amazing month Edi! You have completely exceeded your goals. That is so exciting!!! You offer so many unique, customizable items so I know your business is going to keep growing fast.

    If it makes you feel better, I have fallen out of my yoga routine due to busyness as well! I make sure to focus on healthy eating and getting enough sleep since exercise is difficult to fit in!

  3. This is so amazing to hear! I don't doubt that you'll be able to go full time soon. Congrats on everything!!
