Wishing Everyone A Very Happy New Year!
I can’t believe it’s been 30 days without blogging. I used to wake up every couple of days and be so excited to post my thoughts and ramblings for you all to read. It seems like the last 45 days have been insanely busy! The gift basket industry does 50%-70% of its business in December, depending on which company you are looking at. So needless to say, doing that much business in about 20 days creates lots of activity and very little sleep – so that’s why the blogging has been non existent lately, that shall change!
So we came out with our Christmas collection and it was a success. We had our best month ever and our customers absolutely loved the products. We got loads of feedback on our service and products, it seems like just about everyone was really happy (there are some people you can’t please, no matter how hard you try – which is OK). Now that the season is behind us, there’s an entire fresh new year ahead of us. Here are some things I’m personally working on:
- Launching a new website (new market, new products, etc)
- Setting about 6-7 goals for myself to achieve in 2011
- Growing GiftBasketsPlus month after month
- Launching our new product lines (anniversary gift baskets, mothers day gift baskets, specialty gift baskets, romantic gift baskets, & fruit gift baskets)
- Becoming healthier, fitter, and in shape
- Some more business stuff…
- Some relationship stuff…
I love this time of year for several reasons. One because my birthday is in December. Two because I get to look back at 2010 and see if I hit my goals and achieved everything I wanted to. Unfortunately I can’t say yes to everything but I’m optimistic in the sense that setting my goals for 2011 should be a big success! I suggest you buy a journal, write down all your goals today, and look at them every single day until each & every single one of them is achieved.
I’d love to hear what you did for Christmas, what goals you set for the new year ahead of us, and what you’ve been up to. Please leave a comment below, shoot me a tweet on Twitter, drop me a line on Facebook, or just send me an email – I love hearing from you all. Here’s to an awesome, successful, and happy new year 2011 ahead of us
