It's been a very challenging week, and there's still so much more ahead of me. I've fulfilled all backlogged orders for the months of April and May - unfortunately, they're individual part orders, and I'm having some issues with inventory and free capital. A few weeks ago, I sunk my savings and maxed out my credit cards to make sure orders were fulfilled in a timely manner. I'm been slaving away on the site, and I absolutely need to consider last week's journal entry where I emphasized the necessity that hiring temporary contract workers, and someday long-term employees.
I haven't slept in a couple days, I know there's too much work to be done. My mind races, and the only thing I can think about is what the most optimal move I could make with my business at the moment. I'm receiving more orders and e-mails than I ever have, I'm strengthening relationships with suppliers and business partners, I'm building watches, shooting photography, preparing social media feeds, working with artists on future designs, there's so much going on right now. All I can think about is moving forward, developing, and expanding. Trying to balance the demands of my business and school simultaneously feelings like trying to drink water from a firehose. There's so much to learn and do, I'm excited for school and for my business. I'm early in my academic career - there's so much to learn and so many strong examples to follow. I'm so incredibly thankful that I made the decision to study business, even if I'm overwhelmed. The campus I'm attending has so many wonderful role models and sources of valuable information that are incredibly charitable with their knowledge.
The future's exciting, I've fulfilled a ton of orders and made a lot of progress this past week. Looking forward to what the future holds.
