I'm sure not all craft businesses are the same, but for me, the first few months of the year are quiet in terms of sales and activity. I think it’s really important to use this time to recharge your batteries and relax a little. Other times of the year can be very stressful and full of pressure and it’s hard to keep going if you don’t take care of yourself. My treat this year was to take an overnight trip to Galway with my daughter and it did me the world of good. Not just the fresh air and quality time with my girl, but also the change of scene cleared my head and gave me a renewed energy.
When you feel ready, though, these early months are a great opportunity to catch up on work that’s neglected during the year and to lay a plan for the future. I'm going to go through some of the things I do that help me later on when things get busy.
