May Small Goals

Happy Monday, happy May 1st and happy small goals day! No new Mail Monday post for today, but I promise I’ll have one next week! Let’s just jump right into reviewing last month’s small goals:

  1. Hit our savings goal for the month – Check! It wasn’t easy, but we made it!!!
  2. Set up an Instagram account for Everyday Unicorns – Done! My only goal was to actually set up the account but I even posted something yesterday so that’s a double win!
  3. Design 4 new Everyday Unicorns shirts – YES! Okay y’all, around April 24th I thought this wasn’t going to happen, then last Thursday I kind of had a stroke of creativity and went nuts and designed an entire summer collection. Check out the designs below, and if you like them you can shop them here 🙂
  4. Add pins to my own Pinterest account – Done! I also scheduled out pins for the next 2+ weeks. Holla!

4/4?!?!?! I think this might be my perfect month, you guys! Feeling so great right about now, so let’s move right on to May’s small goals:

  1. Hit my sales goal for Everyday Unicorns – I’ve never set a sales goal for my business, but I’m one of those cheesy people who believes in “putting things out into the universe.” So I’m setting a goal and making moves to make it happen.
  2. Send out at least one newsletter – This goal has made my list before, but here it is again. I don’t even know the last time I sent out a newsletter. Yikes.
  3. Spend more time marketing – I recently read that you should spend 75% of your time marketing….wut. So I’m going to work on streamlining my blog posts so I can spend more time marketing!
  4. Work out four times a week – I have jokingly said “working out is my therapy” but honestly, it’s true. When I don’t work out, I find myself much more anxious and irritable. It’s bad for me. My gym, Kaia FIT North Dallas, is starting our new session today so this is a perfect time to kick it up a notch!
  5. Drink 8+ cups of water per day – My water intake has really been slacking but now that the weather is warming up I have to start taking it more seriously again. Cheers to more water!

Per usual, I’m linking up with the amazing Nicole from Writes Like a Girl blog, make sure to check out her post and posts from the other folks who linked up! Also, BIG news coming later this week, so stay tuned for that! For now, I leave you with wishes for a happy Monday and a wonderful week.

    1. Yessss thanks for your support, girl! I’ve been drinking water today and my bladder hates it so far but the rest of me feels great! haha

  1. 4 for 4!!!!!!! GO VALERY!!!!! Seriously, those new designs are so amazing. I may need to get the thigh gap one in a onesie for the little girl. How adorbs would that be?!?!

    1. eeeeeeek that one definitely needs to be made into a onesie!!!! But let’s be real, they would all be super cute on a onesie.

    1. I completely agree! Anytime I go more than a few days without working out, I really struggle. Those endorphins are the TRUTH!

  2. This is my first month participating in the small goals link up. (You can see my first post here: http://books.thetechchef.net/introducing-small-goals/) I almost put drink more water on my goal list, but every time I try to track any dietary anything life puts the smack down on me. But I did just buy myself a Britta water bottle (it’s even sitting next to me right now.) Hopefully this will encourage more hydration this month. Good luck with your goal for May.

    1. Ahhh I totally feel you, anytime I try to restrict my calories “life happens” and I fail miserably. I’ve been doing great with water so far just trying not to think about it…which is weird? Also just the hot weather makes it much easier to want to drink more. Best of luck with your small goals this month, Arwen! You’ll do great!

  3. I’m so excited for Everyday Unicorns! Kudos to you for working on building the business so consistently. I feel you on hydrating this summer– I need to work more on this too.

    1. Eeeek thank you Harper! It has not been easy, I won’t lie, but it’s very rewarding. I’m hoping to hit more of a groove in the next few months. Also, hydration is hard. Seriously.
