Well hello there...it's been a while, huh? Yeah our last post was in (cough* Nov 2016). If your wondering why we've been MIA well, it's because last year handed our asses to us. Fer reals y'all. This was in part because Jenny and I took on a new leadership role as co-presidents of Etsy Dallas, and in addition to that all the other leadership members were new too, so we all rolled up our sleeves to tackle the year and that meant that we ended up making sacrifices in other areas of our lives. This blog was one of them.
That being said...last year was an amazing learning experience in so many ways. From stretching the reach of my skill set and learning new things to some hard learned self awareness that will help carry me forward. In the midst of all that was happening, I also got laid off and had to navigate the waters of deciding to change my career path into a new industry; which I had wanted to do for some time and just needed this push to do. Whew!
Now it's 2018 and time for a refresh! New career with an amazing company, new focus on tending to some forgotten things in my life (ie this blog, running, photography).
I'd like to kick off this year with some of our business resolutions and invite you all to post yours in the comments so we can all hold ourselves accountable this year!
Our main goal for Pig and Peacock is to grow revenue by 30% which may seem lofty but being stretched thin last year caused us to miss opportunities that we won't let happen again this year.
To help us achieve this goal we are going to keep up with all of our social media channels to really engage with others and build our brand.
In an effort to support goal #2 we are doing in an organization frenzy in our studio to make it more "photo ready" for sharing.
Scheduling, scheduling, scheduling. We are keeping an almost annoying level of detail in our calendars including reminders to make sure we stay on track with P&P and Etsy Dallas to-do's.
Many of these things are already in the works in some capacity-since we are energized from the new year (and lots of rest during the post holiday season). We hope you'll stick around this year and follow our journey!
Wishing you all an amazing 2018!
Sabrina & Jenny
