the simplest answer is to act

Good Monday Morning to you!  I hope your weekend was just what you needed to fuel up for another week!  I spent some good time with friends and family at a baby shower, cleaned up some parts of my house that I haven’t touched since Christmas (ouch!), and had a really fun dinner with a few of our favorite people.

As I get amped up for this week, I have a lot of things on my to-do list that are a little more, shall we say, abstract? One of my biggest goals for the next month is to grow my business, which is so broad, but luckily, I watched a few business videos and listened to a few podcasts this weekend that gave me just the direction I needed.  That being said, my goal for this week is to reach out to 1 new shop each day about carrying my product line.  It seems so simple – one shop a day? But the research and investigation that goes into vetting out the potential shops takes a good amount of time while actually finding the right person to contact isn’t always straight forward.

On Saturday, my husband, Matt, and I were eating some won-ton soup trying to fend off the sub-zero temps and my fortune cookie said this, “The simplest answer is to act”.  Knowing about my goals for the week, I couldn’t have had a more fitting fortune.  I did a little watercolor of the phrase and thought you all might also like the reminder for whatever is on your plate this week.  So, you can download them below!  There is one version for the desktop download and another version for the iPhone wallpaper.

I hope you enjoy this, and I hope you achieve whatever is high on your list today!
