    march goals

    Well, I’m here again to talk about my goals. I didn’t know if I’d share each month but I do think it helps me knowing that someone else out there knows my goals and just might check in to see how I’m doing (ahem, Leslie & Dave). February Goals: 1. finalize my new web design – for the most part it’s ready to go to my web guy to get started. I’m taking an 8 week business class starting mid-March so this might change but it’s set for now. 2. research a new technique – I’ll call this halfway complete. I really need to take a class for this technique…

Today I just wanted to encourage you all that have online businesses, no matter what type they are. I’m by no means an expert. It’s taken me over 10 years to slowly get to where I am – generating a full-time income for my family. I have learned some things along the way…

    february goals

    I didn’t originally plan to share my goals each month, and maybe this will be the one and only time. However, I’ve taken Hayley’s lead and have decided to share my goals for both accountability and inspiration. Amy’s February (monthly) Goals: 1. finalize my new web design – I feel like it’s time for a change again with the website. I want it to be clean, clean, clean. I want it to be a really enjoyable place to shop and also for the blog to be a beautiful place to be inspired.

    fear of success

    The last few weeks have been so eye opening for me. For the longest time I’ve told people that the only thing I care about regarding the business is that it helps pay the bills. I have never cared about it becoming this huge multi-million dollar business with hundreds of employees. For the last 10 years I’ve run my business by myself, basically in the same way for the last 4 or so regarding advertising and strategy (or lack thereof). It’s funny because I mentor two other business owners, and most of the time I feel like I learn more from them than they learn from me. I’ve been thinking…
