Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales - Week 2

The beginning of the week started out great. I was beginning to think that I would easily reach this week's goal, but that is not the case it seems.

Although I am suppose to be repeating my personal affirmation each day, I have gotten very distracted over the past few days. I could say, I am feeling down, but that would not be the truth.

The truth is that I have something bigger on my mind than selling my jewelry. What you may ask? Well I am hosting my son's fifth birthday party on Saturday. And I have been so consumed with making sure this goes off without a hitch, that I have not spent a lot of time working on my jewelry and sales.

The part of my mind that is all about the business is disappointed that I have not spent my time doing the positive thinking I need to. But the Mom in me is frankly more concerned with my son's happiness, and you had better believe that Mom rules in this case.

So I am looking at it this way. He only turns five once. And I have the next four months to work on building more into my sales. But I will never get his fifth birthday party back again.  I am going to finish worrying about all the little details for his party: getting the rig set up to sift for gemstones, setting up the piƱata, cleaning the house, making refreshments, and all the other small details. I will give him a wonderful fifth birthday party with his friends, then I will clean the house back up after the party.

And next week. I will get back on the task of working on my sales.

Here is a quick pic of the cookies I made tonight for his guests. (Fossil Cookies)
