Where the Funny Farm is headed this year.

After all of my experimenting last year with different ways to try to bring in income the good news it not all of them were flops.  We have decided what areas we will put more effort into this year to try to make more successful.  I sat down and wrote down my goals for the year so I thought I would share. 
See I am not intending to make a living off of these "projects" of mine.  My goal is to bring in at least $2500 over the season that my services are viable.  So it is not much but I consider it alot knowing I am starting from nothing.  We decided to take it in two main directions.  Pony parties and summer camps.  So I wanted a clear plan as to how those ideas will be turned into reality.

First the pony parties.  My goal is to do a total of 10 parties over the season.  Which is between 1 and 2 parties a month.  Last year I did two so I have some work to do to get them booked.

Next the summer camps I plan to go two ways with these.  The farm camp was a success so I plan to continue those.  But I also plan to start a horse camp.  Most kids love horses and almost all little girls would love to go to horse camp.  So my goal is to do 2 farm camps and 2 horse camps.  Each with 10 kids.  So I need a total of 40 children to sign up.  That seems like a reasonable number.

Now I did not set my goals incredibly high because I wanted them to be attainable.  And my goal for advertisement is to get flyers to every elementary student in my entire area. 
Next to accomplish is to design flyers and contact schools, get prices on printing and turn these plans into reality!!


  1. That sounds like so much fun! Good luck!!

  2. i am a part timer at a vet clinic and also work for my hubby. I feel that the clinic is a temporary thing, but that I'm supposed to be there for I'm trying to learn as much as I can. And trying to figure out what I will do next.
