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. I've made just about every mistake there is when it comes to running a business.  However, at the same time, I have learned from many of those mistakes and I have adapted.  Earlier in the summer I ran a July 1st sale.  I didn't really do any planning or preparation.  A couple social media posts, an e-mail and voila....a sale!  What I didn't factor in was that this would be one of our largest sale events- EVER!  While the day started off well, about one hour into things, we lost power. ...

Keep on Grooming!

The other day I received an email from my cell phone provider.  They wanted to share with me what they were doing to protect their staff and me, their customer, during the COVID-19 Pandemic.   I sort of chuckled to myself because I really didn't see the value or point of their email.  Maybe I'm insensitive, but there comes a point where customers are inundated with emails about COVID-19 and quite frankly enough is enough- I get it- everyone is washing their hands.   This pandemic has certainly taken a toll on our country and around the world.

It’s Cold. But It’s a Dry Cold

February can sometimes lead to the Winter blahs.  But not for this wet shaver!  February is always an exciting time for me.  For one thing, I celebrate several anniversaries.   I celebrate the anniversary of my first date with my wife Stav.   I celebrate my anniversary at the  airline I work for.   I also celebrate the anniversary of our online store.  I’m not sure if I can say that Spring is right around the corner, but we’re closer to Spring than we were a month ago! Now where was I?  Oh yes February.  February in Winnipeg (or Winterpeg- if you must) can really damage my skin.  Locals will tell you it’s cold.....but it’s a dry cold.  We’ve been fortunate this year,...
