The blog’s been quiet for a few days. That’s because I’m struggling to make some major decisions about which direction to take my business.
Running a storefront is a pain in the neck. Because we already work evenings it makes for really, really long days. There’s also the very real question of whether a storefront will fly in a really small community like the one I live in, where big-box stores are only an hour or so away. Add to that the lure of cross-border shopping and you have a really dicey situation in terms of retail.
So, for the next little bit, the blog is going dark. Well, more like unreliably intermittent. I’ll post things as I do them but I plan on spending a lot of time researching different forms of marketing and how to access a more global clientele. I shouldn’t be gone long, maybe a week or two at the most, and I’ll fill you in on which way the wind is blowing as soon as I’ve made the tough decisions. Back in a bit….take care of yourselves.
