I have big plans this year. Again, it is still just a "plan". I had plans last year too but it didn't work out for so many reasons I don't even want to share. Not because of me but because of other people. Not because I couldn't do it or didn't put in enough effort but mainly because other people let me down so this year, whatever I set out to do, I need to do it MYSELF. Hopefully I will pick the right person to do it with this time.
I got a few things lined up this year and just thought I'd share it here. At first, I was thinking maybe I shouldn't share just yet because if it doesn't happen and work out, then it will be really embarrassing but I want to share this to motivate me to MAKE IT WORK so I wont get embarrass in the end. You know what I mean? Inside of doing it quietly and see if it works out or not, I think it is better I do it loudly and MAKE IT WORK! If it doesn't, it will be embarrassing but at least I tried, kan?
Here are my big projects this year which I'm hoping to achieve:
1. Public Personal Grooming Workshop.
My company is in talks on this workshop. Still in the early stage of planning and getting things together. We've done a proposal and now need to work on a few things to get it going. Basically it is going to be a workshop that focuses on young executive. About fashion (what to wear and how to wear it and what's suitable and what is not for business meetings/at work) and also how to put on make up, the right colours to use and basic skincare discussion on how to look after your skin. I'm also hoping to put in a slot on muslimah office wear which I think is pretty interesting as of late, you see a lot of hijabsters with so many different styles and some are suitable and some aren't when at work. I'm hoping to learn on this myself too. Who knows, Allah might open up my heart this year.
I'm quite excited about this workshop and I really hope we'll get it together. I need to have discussions with few speakers to discuss their respective topics and currently looking for possible sponsorships too. A lot of work to be done but I think I can do it.
Last year, I wanted to do a website for all my party stuff but that didn't happen. I blame myself for it because I didn't have time to sit down and really put things together. I moved home and with that, there's a lot to be done and I only managed to accept certain jobs and have to say no to a few too. I didn't mind losing the jobs because honestly, I was really tight too. And since this business is not exactly a money making business, I figured I didn't loose much. But having said that, I love doing it. I don't do it for the money because honestly, the money is pretty sucky. I do it because I enjoy doing it and I love doing it. So, this year, I'm hoping I'll get more time to do something with this little business of mine. I'm planning to do a few premade party packages and I'm planning to send out a proposal to a few party venues and see if we could work together. I have a few ideas on how this might work. It wont take that much of my time since the designs are already done. I think I can manage. Hopefully I'll get to tie up with some party venues so instead of just booking a place for a party (i.e JungleGym), you also have an option to take our packages which will include all the printables. Of course, some wont want the package since they have their own people doing printables, and that's fine but for those who don't, at least now they have the option. I just need to come up with good packages now and do up a few themes for people to choose from and I think that's good enough.
At the same time, of course I'm also doing custom made designs too when the request is there. We'll see.
3. Wall Posters
I started doing wall posters for my kid's playroom and I think I can start exploring the possibility of marketing these posters. I'm thinking of maybe selling it. I'm still exploring this but I think I can branch out to do wall décor. This is another thing I want to get into.
4. Children's T-Shirt
This is also another new thing that I want to get into. I'm looking to design children's t shirts. I'm currently looking for t-shirt suppliers/manufacturers. I found a few but I haven't met up or discussed with any of them yet regarding my requirement. I want my t shirts to be organic cotton material and it's not that easy to find suppliers of that. I've contacted few friends abroad who may be able to help me out on this and still waiting for their feedback. Hopefully this will happen this year as I'm quite excited to do this too. A good friend of mine who is in London suggested that I do this when I was complaining about what to do next and I think this is pretty doable too as the t-shirts are already made with fixed sizes and whatnot. All I have to do is just design the prints. Finding the right supplier is not easy and I'm hoping to find out that is suitable and most importantly, organic. I want them to be organic.
So there you go.. I've got 4 main projects this year. Im really praying that I get to do all I set out to do but if not, if I can only achieve one of this 4, I'll be happy. I must work on it. At least 1 project will keep me happy.
Wish me luck and please support!!!
I feel so motivated and bersemangat right now..... Love this feeling!
