Have you ever thought about what you need to stop doing to succeed? We all derail ourselves with what are essentially habits that don't serve us. Learn about creating your personal "Don't Do List" on the blog: http://www.creativeartsprofessional.com/weblog/do-you-have-a-dont-do-list?

Many people choose a “word” as a focus tool for the year. I have been doing this since probably 2005, when I drew the word "openness" from a basket at my yoga studio. I wasn't too keen on the word at the time. I went home, taped the word onto my computer, and let it be an anchor as I went through the year. Looking back, I know that this made a tremendous difference in my year. Read more on the blog: http://bit.ly/2inlPbj

How far have you gotten with goal setting for 2017? Looking at last year's wins, losses, and lessons learned is one step. A second step is to reframe the beliefs you had in place from those lessons, celebrate the new paradigms and be grateful. A third step is to create compelling goals. SMART goals are compelling and they make implementation of your goals easier. For more, head on over to the blog:

Many creatives find business planning beyond boring. It can be so black and white — after all it does involve looking at numbers. When you get right down to it, getting your dreams and goals down on paper and figuring out how to accomplish them is creative. Especially when you get out those colored markers and pencils. For some thoughts on how to more effectively plan, head on over to the blog: http://www.creativeartsprofessional.com/weblog/look-back-and-move-upward

Have you ever thought about how important it is to take time for yourself on a regular basis? Do you connect this with the health of your business? I, for one, admit that while I might give self-care attention, I can get wrapped up in what's going on and not make it the priority I should. And, when I don't take care of myself, I'm not at my best when I work on my business. If you are in the same place, here are some thoughts you can read on the ICAP blog: http://www.creativeartsprofessional.com/weblog/do-you-have-self-care-practice

How good are you at follow-up? You know, that is where the money is.
I was talking with a few of my clients who had returned from Quilt Market with lots of follow-up items. Some were clearly immediate, such as filling orders, and those got processed right away. The problem for my clients was they came back with all these notes that weren't really money related or where they couldn't see the clear money connection. Plus they felt overwhelmed getting back in gear. And, the follow-up is in question.
What I have found through the years is that the when I pay attention to following up on a consistent and timely basis, it lets me build better relationships, which is really my goal, and that means adding to my business bottom line. Here are some ideas to help you with follow up.

I got back from International Quilt Market in Houston on Monday. Quilt Market was founded in 1979, and I've been going since 1994. That's a long time and I've seen lots of changes in the industry over the years. The industry continues to change with the times. We've seen times of prosperity and times of adversity. Yet, quilting continues to thrive. I came back inspired and optimistic about where our industry is headed. Here is just a bit of what I saw. http://tinyurl.com/jnho2hl
