Counting down

I’m in serious count down mode, and not it’s not for Christmas. I’m counting down till 5pm Friday when my day job finishes and I get a wonderful 5 days off!

Now these 5 days are going to be filled with cycling, running, cooking and of course Christmas but a large portion of them is going to be dedicated to 2013.

Why?

Well because I am determined to make 2013 the best year yet for my business and to do that I need some serious planning, some learning of new skills and some action plans put into place so that I can hit the ground running.

While everyone else is still in the post Christmas, New Year hangover I intend to be organised and making my business work smarter.

So during your holiday period why not set aside some time and dedicate it to your business? Make some plans, write some lists and get started on those New Years resolutions early!

Happy Holidays!

Christmas and how you spend your dollars

Christmas, not only is it coming faster and faster each year, the retail push to spend, spend spend is increasing.

But before you pop down to your local big name retailer this Christmas have a look at the alternatives. Namely people like yourselves who are trying to get their small businesses started.

A solid Christmas sale can mean so much to an independent label. Not only is it valuable money the morale and confidence boost it can offer is far greater.

So take a look at

etsy

local markets (the Sydney Morning Herald has a quick round up across all states here)

and your local independent stores. You will find individual gifts that can be so much more exciting than the bland big corporate offerings.

So take a look around and see if you can make this Christmas a handmade Christmas.
