A new business
In my last post I talked about how I want nothing to do with the complicated computery bits of online sales, but I also don’t want to deal with the expectations of Etsy.
Well, I spoke with my friend, Jono, and we rekindled an idea from a couple months ago. It was to start a business called These Men Are Professionals. It’s a name meant to allay worry, you see. Who can be trusted more than professionals? This is a rhetorical question, of course.
But the website exists. I registered the domain, I set up an ecommerce website, I committed to an ongoing draw on my funds. Now I just have to put some more stuff on it and get it sold, which means I need to do some photography. And some more making, I suppose. Hopefully somewhere I draw in Jono, lest it be the website of a professional man. This Man Is A Professional doesn’t have the same ring.
When I began this blog I committed to not using it to make money. It is with great trepidation that I post the URL. Please forgive me, my conscience. My motives are pure-ish.
