My New Year’s Resolution: Start my Handmade Business


This year is the year I need to get my business started! I’ve been doing a lot of reading about where to begin, and on marketing and branding and blogging and small-business-starting and whatnot, but haven’t posted anything yet regarding my progress. This is because I simply haven’t made any.

So this year I resolve to cut out the crap and do what’s important:

• This year I will make an item every week to be listed on my Etsy shop, Shubette.

Starting today, I will dedicate each and every week of the year to making something worthwhile.
At week’s end, I will list the new item in my shop.

This exercise will force me to meet my own creative deadlines, find organizational balance while striving to meet my goals, learn the basics of selling online, and it will also help me to learn just what my own niche in the crafting biz is, since I’m fickle and can’t decide where I want to take things just yet.

So what’s your New Year’s resolution? Are you trying to take what you make a little further? If you’re a handmade business owner, what resolutions did you make for yourself and your business when you were starting out? Feel free to let me know by leaving a comment below.
