Goals Revisited

2018 has been a busy year, so far, for me.
            I started out January with a marketing workshop through my friend Susan Carmen Duffy at Create Art 4 Good. I set goals and went on my merry way. I started painting and attending workshops.
            Then came June and Susan sent me a reminder of my goals in anticipation of our upcoming Marketing Mondaymeeting. I have been attending these meetings regularly in an effort to better promote my art. I was pleasantly surprised that I had accomplished 2½ of my 5 goals. The last two involve doing something I should have done last year. I have a tendency to just paint and ignore the business part of my art. This has caused me to have a surplus of product and no online presence for sales.
            The following are my 2018 goals:
·      Paint more Norris’.
ü  As I mentioned above, I have been painting!
·      Research places to get my art visible outside of Rochester.
ü  I have been looking into shows outside of Rochester and galleries in areas where I like to paint. I’ve entered a couple of competitions and made a painting donation to the Provincetown (MA) Art Association and Museum.
·      Get my website running and consistently posting.
ü  My website is up and running. I’ve been posting regularly on my Facebook page but I have not been writing my blog on my website. I have not added any of my new paintings to my page galleries since November. This goal has only been half reached.
·      Sell online.
·      Get my DBA and tax number.
Now I need to accomplish the last two. I can’t sell online without a tax number and I can’t get a DBA without deciding on the name I want to have…forever.
This is why, while, even though I don’t like to think about the business part of being a creative, I continue to take classes, read articles and attend Marketing Monday meetings. These friends are the ones who keep me honest and gently push me in the direction I need to be headed in.
Along that vein, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that:
·      My Facebook page is Christine D Norris
·      My Instagram page is o2paint 
·      My website is www.christinednorrispaints.com
