Having finished my 2016, year end inventory and accounting tasks I learned a few things from looking at the numbers. My sales from selling items and from teaching were down but my raw metals inventory went up.
I know that the teaching engagements were up and I was in THREE shows this year but did not sell much there or on-line. I also stocked up on metals since prices, at times, were lower.
What are my goals for 2017?
- Make more items to sell and use materials from my inventory.
- Enter at least 4 juried shows.
- Teach at least 3 multi-day workshop and a few private classes.
- Write at least 2 articles - having them actually published can be a year or more after submission.
Time to go start planning some projects!
