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

It's miles alaming kingdom of rely for me to see how humans have been looking ahead to the Sunday sale. but after checking the essay writing it made me clear that that is feasible as the human beings have raised earnings of the shop through the purchase of liquor.
