Here is another glimpse into the life of small business.
We are closed today, and I thought to myself "oh man I'm going to get so much product made because we sold out at our event this weekend and the shop was super busy! It's going to be awesome!" Fast forward 8 hours. So far I have had two meetings, and I have made 11 stops to run errands and purchase things for the shop. And I have made virtually nothing.
A quick inventory of my SUV, and it contains 3000 candy containers, 30 brand new custom chocolate boxes (with an announcement forthcoming) , 150 lb of chocolate, other miscellaneous candy packaging, a case of shopping bags for events, to online orders that need shipped and my rent check, Christmas decorations, random ingredients, two fresh pomegranates, my uneaten lunch, and my hopes of getting a lot of production done today... Thank goodness that I don't have to get my kids today because their car seats are full of chocolate and the weather is shit and I don't want to unload my car.
