Holiday Mission Statement for my ETSY store

I am participating in the "Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp" on the ETSY website. I would like to have more success on ETSY and sell more of my jewelry and accessories and I figure that doing something like this couldn't hurt. I think I do succeed more when I am accountable to someone or thing and this feels like a fun project.

My assignment for this week is to write a mission statement for the holiday season. Here is the written description..."So your second task this week is to write out a mission statement. Why are you working your butt off this season? What is your motivation?"
I am going to list some goals I have and reminders as to why I want to be successful on ETSY. I love lists, so obviously this will be in list form!

-I want to participate in craft shows this season. At least one small one and one big one.
- I have made 60 sales on etsy (and a few outside of etsy as well) I would like to be closer to 100 after this season is over.I am shooting for 20 more sales on Etsy and 20 more sales outside of Etsy (like at the craft shows)
- I would like to make enough money from Etsy to afford another trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
- I want to remember how much I enjoy creating. I want to carry this joy around with me even if I do not meet all of my goals.
- I want to feel happy with everything I produce and realize that my items are worth buying!

  1. I love your mission statement! AND I have been looking into taking a trip to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary for months now! I'd love to hear more about it. Maybe you chat about it on your blog - I'll go dig around.
