March 2013 in review

Today marks the end of month number four for the Millionaire on Heels.

My key accomplishments this month included:
  • Building my value proposition and branding via new logos and designs for this site and my bricks-and-mortar brand
  • Enhancing my product offering and partnerships.  I researched and contacted suppliers and channels for my bricks-and-mortar brand, although one of them has not come back to me …
  • Making progress on my book – keep posted for more on this in April
  • Located designers for both product packaging and book illustrations
  • Opening an online share trading account with a large sum of free trades to play with.  I didn’t get quite as far as I’d hoped to on this, so that will be a continued focus in April.  Luckily the market has dropped back a bit, so the timing has actually turned out well
  • Discussing a rebalancing my portfolio with my full service broker
The absolute overall highlight was my speech at a large industry conference.  This was essential to building my bricks-and-mortar profile, and definitely exceeded my expectations.

Financially it was yet another good month:
  • The value of my share portfolio peaked mid-month, and then dropped.  Corrections are generally good opportunities for buying, though, so I will invest more in April
