2016 Career Goals

This year, my career goals are pretty simple. In fact, all one but stems from the same goal. This year I would like to:
     - Get a Teaching Job
     - Research Starting an Etsy Business




Get a Teaching Job
I used My Goals app to break down finding a new career into manageable steps. I also places a strict deadline on each item so that I would get them done in a timely fashion instead of trying to rush through everything in a weekend. I need to:
     1. Write resume
     2. Write cover letter
     3. Have resume and cover letter
         reviewed
     4. Edit resume and cover letter
     5. Have resume and cover letter
         reviewed a second time
     6. Research school districts near me
     7. Submit resumes and applications
     8. Purchase new work clothes
     9. Get a teaching job!

I can't even begin to tell you how ready I am to find a job closer to home. I also can't express how much I want to be immersed in science again, teaching others about the awesomeness that is biology.

Research Starting an Etsy Business
I've been thinking of creating an Etsy business for years. I dabbled selling my paintings a couple years back, but nothing sold. It wasn't worth the time and effort I took to paint, photograph, edit, and post to make absolutely nothing in return, so I shut it down. Since starting a craft business still interested me, I figured I would spend more time figuring it our in case I decide to begin a business next year.
     1. Research shop ideas
     2. Research set up and fees
     3. Research marketing
     4. Research pricing and shipping of
         items

All fairly simple and fairly explainable. I am looking forward to all the changes that are going to occur this year along with the potential to make significantly more money than I have previously. It feels wonderful to be finally moving forward and getting my life on track!

What are you career goals this year? Remember, if you are unhappy or unsatisfied in your current job or lack there of, it isn't too late to change it!
