Change Isn't Always a Bad Thing

Alright, I'll admit it, I don't like change.  If you believe in statistics like I do, then you'll know that over 77% of people (like me) hate change as well.  However, I have learned that sometimes change can be a good thing. One reality of owning an online store is that you really have 2 choices.  The first choice is to have an online store and leave it as is and never make changes to it.  The other choice is to have an online store that changes, grows and evolves with your business.  I have chosen the latter.  My store is always a work in progress.  If you're one of the first few people to have ever visited our online store, you...

My Summer Reflection and Back to School

I'm giving you a warning ahead of time that this blog may seem like I'm rambling.  Good reader, pull up a chair, a cup of coffee, and have a read.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

In my regular line of work (pilot) I make decisions all the time.  Making a decision is not always an easy task.  You have to look at the situation and gather all the resources you have at your disposal to make the right decision.  So when a customer  reached out to me last week and asked me about how I decide what products I carry in my online store, it gave me a chance to reflect on this subject and I thought I would share some of the factors that go in to adding new products into the online store.    In order to understand why I carry the products that I do, perhaps we should take a journey back...
