Year in Review – 2015

Wow, what a year.

Here is a list of some of things I learned about this year:

  • WooCommerce
  • Facebook Advertising
  • Teespring
  • Shopify
  • Amazon FBA
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Affinity Designer

Teespring dominated my year. Last year it was writing books for Kindle. Here is the breakdown month by month.

January

In January I continued advertising one of my ecommerce sites. Struggled with learning Facebook Ads. Put the ecommerce site on hold as I was not getting enough sales from advertising.

February

February worked on new book. Did a lot of research and started draft but never completed it.
