The first thing to do each year is make a working plan for the year, if you didn’t get it done in December (which I didn’t last year)

So, I did that and here it is:

1 Triple the number of items available in my Zazzle shops.
2 Increase sales.
3 Develop a website and three feature blogs in addition to blogging regularily on my personal blog
4 Add another shop to Zazzle
5 Develop a 72 design series

Of course there are more specific criteria for each of these items, and time frames for implementing each goal.

Now that I am nearly two weeks into this plan, I am finding it challenging, but doable. I have found solutions to a couple of issues that were puzzling me and am continuously learning things to help with all of these goals.

So far I have:

Increased products by 100
Developed four designs of the 72 design series
Developed three awesome new fractal designs
Developed my website, two new blogs and three weekly blog features
Added the new shop, though it is not open yet
Sales have been slow the last two weeks, that should improve as we really get into the swing of this fantastic new year, 2011.

How are you doing with your 2011 plan and implementation?

You can’t reach your destination if you don’t have one!


  1. I am glad you have sure a well constucted set of goals!

    Most of the time I just 'think' what I want to do and never set it in stone, or write it down. So most years, it gets forgotten, passed over, or becomes an undisclosed success I don't bother sharing.

  2. I meant to say:
    "I am sure glad you have a well constructed set of goals!"

    Adding to my list for 2011: "SPELL CHECK REGULARLY"

  3. "You can't reach your destination if you don't have one!" Good point. Are you by any chance the Energizer Bunny?

  4. I hear you about not reaching goals that aren't committed to Shannon. (and the spell check thing too, lol)

    Here's to a year where we all move closer to achieving our dreams! :)

  5. Brenda the 'energizer bunny' in me took off in 2003, but I'm hot on it's trail, lol

    It's all about consistent focused effort one day at a time :)
