First of all I can't believe how neglected my blog has been this year and in all honesty my business as well. I new going into 2013 that I would be taking a step back as I was working to complete my masters degree in internet marketing and that between school and my family my business would suffer.
However I look back over the course of this year at many missed opportunities and it makes me a bit sad. I am making the declaration that 2014 is going to be my make it or break it year. What I mean by that is that I have several ideas in the works and I am currently creating a business calendar for 2014, and at the end of the year I need to have crossed of 2/3 of the goals on the list if this has not occurred Jane hancock papers will just become more of a hobby something that I still do occasionally because I can't imagine not being creative, but I will stop trying to push forward to make it a "real" business.
I think when you have a dream or a goal you can start treating it like a baby and you are afraid to put it down and leave it alone. I started Jane hancock papers in 2007 and it has been an adventure, but it has to blossom into the business that I have dreamed it will become. I am beginning to realize that sometimes hard work is not enough sometimes it just can't be done. So that is why today I make the declaration that 2014 is the year.
In January I will start back with regular post about what is going on with the business, things we are excited about it the world of design and all things pretty. I plan to do another post before the end of the year that contains some if not all our goals and hopefully we will be checking those off throughout the year. So stay tuned for more, more and more.
