Behind the Scenes: October Goals

Part two of our Behind the Scenes series takes a look at what kinds of goals we have set for our first month in business.

One of the most important parts of owning any business is setting clear goals. Some goals are long term, while others are more immediate.

While I won't bore you with all of the many goals we have set, I will give you a firsthand look at our goals for this month of October. I don't like to set too many, as that can be overwhelming, or too few, as that is "underwhelming" and not motivating.

So here they are:

1) Put Together a Grand Opening (DONE!)
2) Attend the Buy the Big O Show (will be completed Wednesday)
3) Sell 20 Tshirts (14 to go)
4) Sell 20 Totes (18 to go)

We have a little whiteboard in our office where we are "keeping score" of what we have accomplished, how much more towards our goals, etc. Of course, you can always help out by purchasing one or more of our fun items! Just today I added two more Halloween shirt designs that would appeal to many people.
