I am pleased to report that made my target of 5 infinity scarves on Saturday…and made two more this morning. I must confess that I thought it was going to be an easy target but they actually took longer to make than I thought. I had to push myself to keep going on Saturday. And I am pleased to say that I stuck with it because I’m a businesswoman! I’m back in business and have inventory now.
I made up that schedule I mentioned so that I can keep the “distractions” under control. I started it yesterday and it has worked beautifully so far. I’m so glad. I’ll continue to test it during the week and I’ll post it here when I know it works.
Another great development has happened over the last couple days: I do believe I am turning into a businesswoman!
Symptom #1: I am collecting my own market research information. I logged the fabric and dimensions of every new scarf I made this weekend in a journal. AND remembered to take pictures of them. This is so that I can keep track of what sells or not, and how long, and to what type of customer.
Symptom #2: I had to run a personal errand this afternoon and I took the new scarves with me just in case I ran into an opportunity to sell them! I’ve never done that before.
See, I am turning into a businesswoman!
Gotta go because now I’m off-schedule and should be in bed. More tomorrow.
Wow! This is pretty cool. I’m sitting here wondering what to write for my first post and I have a feeling that a fringe benefit of writing a blog is that it will make me a better writer.
Okay, on with this adventure. I just wrote a nice blurb in my profile but I didn’t say what this journey is about. This journey is about creating the kind of life I want — once and for all. Not just dream about it, not just hope for it, not expect it to fall in my lap magically because I’ve been a good girl — but actively create it! What a viewpoint, yes?
Personally, I don’t believe you can accomplish anything great without first having a clear sense spiritually of yourself and the world around you. I’m delighted to say that I have gained that through my studies of Scientology and the writings of L. Ron Hubbard. It’s been a gradual process and I need to put more of it to work. It’s one thing to learn things and feel good about them and feel good about yourself. It’s quite another to put what you learn to work and use it to change your life and the lives of others.
My goal with this blog is to document, target and be accountable. I want to document the steps I’m taking so I can look back at the end of my journey and remember exactly what I did, and help others to do the same. I want to record here what targets need to be accomplished so I don’t lose sight of the goal, plans, etc. And I want to be accountable to someone (all you guys reading this) because I work harder when I do things for others than when I just do something for me.
The first area I want to change in my life is my career. I have always considered sewing to be a hobby, but it’s really a passion. I just LOVE it. It should have been my career after high school but I was unwittingly influenced by other-determined goals (goals not set by me) at the time. So my blog to start is mostly going to be about setting up my own sewing business. I currently work as a legal secretary so, as you can see, there is a transition involved here.
The next area I want to change in my life is to get married again. (More on that later after I know you better!) Call me crazy but I believe there are a lot of great guys out there looking for someone great like me. I just have to start looking.
The next area of my life I want to change is to help other able people to achieve their goals. It can be very frustrating to know you can do better, to know you can achieve more and still not know how to go about it. I have big plans to share my wins with others so they can have wins too.I hereby declare this blog to be started!!
