Creating Vision...

Lately, I've been involved in the process of promotion for my Etsy shop, thinking of ways to branch out and create more exposure & not to mention, I'd like to have fun while I do this -(which I am!) But, I've realized that this only works once you have created a vision for yourself. And I don't just mean a plan. I mean visualizing yourself doing what you want to do and creating that reality, on your own terms. I recently took a weeks vacation and instead of going away, I stayed on the homefront to help out a family member with some issues she was having. (Hey, my sister needed me and I am pretty good at playing shrink too). However, I had a bit of free time to play in the Bluepie Studio and I realized that's where I belong! That's where I am happy. That's where I thrive. It's my passion. It's also me, creating my own reality, creating my vision. So, since then I've been super busy spending all waking hours planning, thinking, sewing and dreaming. But I am also taking action. I joined the NJ Etsy street team today (yeah!) and decided to ship international too. Tomorrow I will think up some other new ideas to move things along. (I think in my sleep too. I know that's not good since I need those brain cells to recharge at night, so I am working on that too.) So- the last few weeks were pretty good to Bluepie too..I had some sales and great feedback from buyers who are happy with my products and customer service. Yup- it all starts with a vision!
to be continued.....

You are so right! The best laid plan will only get you so far, but it's the ACTION that counts the most! I really love reading you blog. Big ups to you. :)
