monthly goal meetup

ok. so jena at modish and modish biz tips has this great idea called the monthly goal meetup. it's basically a way to make your monthly business goals public, so that you are held a little more accountable. i have really been enjoying jena's posts on her new biz tips blog, and i think this is a fantastic way to help me get going with my new endeavor. so here goes!

monthly goals :: april '09 :: smidgebox designs

1. design and print my product tags
2. create the rest of my desired start-up inventory for etsy shop
3. re-design and print new business cards [mine are outdated, need new address and url]
4. make up a press kit for online advertising/announcements. design and print shop announcement postcards [this one may run over into next month. it's a more involved goal!]
5. get an hour alone at the post office to research and figure out shipping options + rates
6. open etsy shop by may 1

i hope i can accomplish all of these by the end of the month. it'll be a tight timeline as the next two weekends will not yield any time for me to work. but if i'm disciplined enough during the week [ahem. less non-biz-related time online], i think i can make this work. i really want my shop up and running for may. wish me luck!
