A while back I posted that I was starting to plan my 2022 goals. Well, I spent the last week putting the finishing touches on them. I spent the last few days working on my content calendar for the next year as well. A lot of my goals will become content as I accomplish them so stay tuned for that.
Here’s a rough recap of what I want to do in the next year:
- Participate in a monthly photo challenge
- Go out with my camera 3 times a week
- Grow my blog and other social media sites
- Learn how to run a business
- Create multiple streams of income
- Focus on my mental health
Participate in a Monthly Photo Challenge
I’ve got a few ideas for these lined up. I’m also looking for more ideas, so please hit me up in the comments below. I plan on blogging about each one as I accomplish it. I’m also going to ask my Facebook group for suggestions.
Go Out with My Camera Three Times a Week
I just started a new job last week, so I won’t be able to go out for sunrise nearly as often as I have been lately. But I will be able to catch sunset every night if I want. And my new schedule will allow me to be done way before sunset even happens, so I can go out in the middle of the day and photograph scenes around my house.
Grow My Blog and Other Social Media Sites
My 2022 content calendar is all set up for the entire year. I have blog post ideas, Facebook content, Instagram posts, and Pinterest all figured out. I just have to write the content and take the photos. I’m also on TikTok and going to post there as often as I can depending on what my other content.
Learn How to Run a Business
I’m trying to get better at running the business side of Quade Photography. I’m not necessarily good at that aspect, which is why I am planning on changing that. Santa brought me a few books this year which I plan on reading and incorporating into my life. I also plan on reading more articles and bouncing ideas off of my accountant.
Create Multiple Streams of Income
Speaking of my accountant, I’m going to be looking into different streams of income. So far I’ve got craft fairs, blog ads, products on my website, and Etsy. I’m signed up for 11 craft fairs next year so far, and I still have room in my schedule for a few more. I’m going to be adding more products to my website in the next couple of weeks as well.
The one thing is, I’m considering leaving Etsy. I’ve been on it for over a year now, and I haven’t really sold anything there yet. It might be time to reevaluate. Any suggestions for how to grow my Etsy shop? Or do you think I should remove my inventory from there to my website?
Focus on my Mental Health
This last one isn’t business related necessarily, but it does impact my business. I’m going to do what I need to do to focus on my mental health. The past few years have been rough, and I’ve had enough of it. I’m taking Vitamin D to help with my mood. And I just started doing yoga again.
What are some of your goals for 2022?
