Reviewing this Year Before Planning for 2018
Filed under: 6 Pillars, Community, Planning & Goal Setting, Your Plan

Before we start planning for 2018, it's important to review where we are now.  It’s December of 2017.  And everywhere we are turning, there are two main topics.  One:  The Holidays. Two: 2018. I love the potential that a new year brings, feeling like you’re starting fresh every year.  However, while we are planning for 2018 and what we want the year to encompass, I also think it’s important to take into consideration everything that happened this year, ask ourselves some questions, and build upon them as well.  So today, I wanted to give you a few questions to go through to reflect upon for the year, to ask yourself before setting your goals for 2018.   One:  What were some of your favorite memories within your business that happened in 2017, and what did you enjoy doing the most this year? It’s important to reflect on your favorite memories - what…

  Hey, happy Monday!  How are you feeling today? If you are a maker, an artist, or a designer, and you had an offer or sales for this weekend, how did it go? The answer to that question may go one of two ways.  It may go positively, like “oh my goodness, this was our best year yet! It was so busy, it had such a great response, and it was worth all of that hard work to put everything into place! Our phones were cha-chinging like crazy!" Or, it may be experiencing the opposite emotions.  You may catch yourself thinking or saying, “well, it wasn’t so great.  I didn’t get nearly as many orders as I was hoping for.  I found myself working last minute, wishing I had done things differently, or flying by the seat of my pants, frazzled and thinking “why isn’t this working?!” with nothing but…

Filed under: Conference, Your Marketing, Your Plan

A look back at our 2017 Creative Founders Conference... In early March of 2017, 20 women walked through the doors of the Lee House for our 2017 Creative Founders Conference.  They were excited, nervous, and walked in knowing that so many things for their business were about to change. The next four days that transpired were some of the most memorable for the year, and it has been incredible to see them grow in so many different ways. Below is our Day Three Recap of our 2017 Conference. Day 1 is here, Day 2 is here, and Day 3 is below!  If you were an attendee, we hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane today, and if you're interested in joining us for 2018, register here.  Enjoy!   Day Three was perfect.  It was a bit less intense than Day 2, with more breaks purposely built into the day. …
