July Goals Review

Holy it really August already!?! I guess it's true what they say about time flying when you're having fun :) I just finished my second month of self-employment and I'm still loving every minute of it! I have to pinch myself some days to make sure I'm really living my dream :)

Shop Goals:
It was another record breaking month for sales in my Etsy shop! Last month I doubled my goal from one sale a day to two...and I'm happy to report that I was well over 3 sales per day for the month of July! 104 sales to be exact! I about fell on the floor when I looked at my stats!
And I did my sales tax for the second quarter and am very happy with the direction my business is going. Getting to compare first quarter sales to second quarter sales really helped me realize that I made the right decision to quit my job when I did!

Blog Goals and Other Business Goals remain about the same. I blog 5-6 days per week and have still been doing great at scheduling ahead. I haven't had a chance to contact the wedding planners or venues that I've had on my list, but I did have a company contact me to run a special on their site. I'll have a review up about this when the sale ends. I'm still up in the air about how I feel about it.

 Personal Goals:
Another area I'm proud of are my personal goals. I've continued with my jogging and walking and even added some pilates. I jog on Mon-Wed-Fri and walk+pilates on Tues-Thurs. I've averaged 3-5 days per week again this month. And I've stepped up my jogging. When I first started I'd only go 1 mile...and now I'm up to 2! Considering I used to jog 3-4 miles per day, I still have a long way to go, but I'm happy to be where I am with my workouts :) Now if I could start to see some results in the ol' waist line, that would be nice!

I hope your July rocked and that your August is off to a great start :)

    I'm with you on the fitness goals. I've been meeting mine as well. I'm sure by now you know how good it feels physically as well as mentally. I'll be adding some Pilates to my workouts as well. It's my favorite way to workout. I like to mix it up with some cardio for an all around perfect workout!

    Keep up the great work!!!!!

  10. That is great about the fitness goals. I am hoping to add another workout day next month once I see how my new work schedule goes. I like the itty bitty progress I am making in that area but wish I saw a difference in my waist line as well!
