So if you've been following this series, you know I've been thinking a lot about the direction in which I want to take my business. For the past 2 years I've been selling print on-demand clothing featuring my own crochet designs, but I'm ready to expand beyond that. Now that I'm doing Snapdragon Brand full time, I can! And I'm so excited.
Based on my thoughts and experiments over the past month and a half, here are the goals I've come up with:
So, I've been at it full-time since late January. In that time I've created a business plan, decked out my studio where I work, and let the world know my intentions.
This last month or so was very busy as I completed three big projects:
1. I applied to be a part of the Finger Lakes Annual Exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery here in Rochester.
2. I taught an Inspiration retreat at Sewgreen (a recycled fiber arts store) here in Rochester.
3. I completed a guest blog post for The Hook Nook Life!
It's been a whirlwind first week as an Entrepreneur!

1. I need to re-vamp my Business Plan.
Check! I discovered a wonderful little thing called the Business Model Canvas. It made creating a plan so much easier for my visual style of learning. And it really helped me to understand the working parts of a business. I'll release...
