So I've never written a 'year in review' post before, and I'm not really sure how to go about it... but we'll see what happens :)
First off, I OFFICIALLY STARTED MY OWN BUSINESS!!!
Y'all really. It seemed so overwhelmingly daunting at the time that I couldn't really see it ever happening. But really it wasn't all that hard [stay tuned for an update after I've done my 2016 taxes, HA]. And that being said, hopefully I did it all right!
From picking a name and struggling to "brand" even though I know the importance of cohesiveness, I still have a lot to learn! After starting I was really just praying, "Lord, please send me at least one paid order." Prayer works people.
Total Orders = 89
Holiday Orders: 19
LuLaRoe Orders: 50
Workshop Attendees: 10
That's crazy to me. Did you see that last line? I taught my own Workshop! Which was fun, and I need to plan more --> good goal for 2017! There is lots to improve on there also! I keep saying there's lots to improve, but I'm not letting that overwhelm me... continually learning and growing is a good thing, not something to fret over.
For a little comparison, here is a really really early lettering piece next to a more recent one! Practice people, practice. It does wonders.
There is so much more I could share and reflect on, but from wedding signs, envelope addressing, custom framed calligraphy to LuLaRoe clothing signs, it has been a fun 8 months of business with Joy Unscripted!! And I feel extremely blessed to have met some amazing people through this adventure!! [More to come on that in a later blog post!]
Here's to a year filled with lots of mistakes to learn from, goals made and fun events! Let's get focused and make 2017 even better 💛
