Well this will be my last blog before Christmas day so I want to wish all of my readers and blog followers a very Merry Christmas and hope you all get to enjoy some relaxing time with your families! I hope you have all of the things on your to do list almost done and are just finishing up last minute things. I’m glad to say that I have had all my decorating, shopping and wrapping done for a couple of weeks now. I know you last minute shopper’s don’t get it but seriously I don’t like the crowds and being in the stores once it gets really busy. Just need to do a little more baking or perhaps keep my husband out of the butter tarts, I’ve made two batches of them already! Add to that peanut butter balls, sugar cookies and candy cane bark! Tis’ the season!
I thought I’d give you a recap of my business Designs by Shell for 2012. This has been my most successful year ever. This December I reached my highest sales month since I started back in 2008. It’s been quite a journey. I’ve learned so much about networking, how to market my designs, what type of products sell the best for me and so much more. It’s been an exciting year to see my store grow and reach new heights. I fully expect 2013 to be even more successful as I continue to build my business.
As the new year approaches it’s good to set some goals for your business to keep you on track and moving in a forward direction. Smart goals, goals that you can think through and put into action are the way to go. The break down of SMART goals are: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. So know your goals, write them down, review them often. I wish you a joyous and prosperous New Year in business but also in your daily life!
Here are some of my items and designs that we’re popular sellers in 2012.
