Steps Forward and Setbacks

Our attempts to solidify our trademark have hit a snag, so that will impact our forthcoming web page redesign, but it’s nothing that can’t be overcome and in any case won’t affect our business name. We also now have our post office box which will be noted on our web page, and with the receipt of our credit cards, we can now begin the purchase of equipment, supplies, and additional training classes in our organic design software.

As an update, we are continuing our research into payment services, a cloud file service for our digital record keeping, other advertising streams and we are also searching for a competent photographer for use in adding our finished models to our web content. Suggestions from our followers, our own constant web browsing and family and friends continue to keep us busy with many great ideas to include in our line of offerings. Some of these items could well stand on their own with a dedicated website, so we we are pleased that we have so many great ideas sent our way for inclusion to our output. It may be that we’ll have to whittle down our selection and incorporate a just few that we feel may be the most popular. It’s also possible that we will include them at some time in the near future, in the way of keeping a revolving, and interesting, product line.

At this time, there aren’t enough hours in the day to do proper justice to every aspect of reasearching, organizing, starting, managing and running a small business. Bookkeeping, purchasing, accounts payable, filing, reference books, shipping, photography, web design, payment services, file services, security protocols, licensing, permits, federal agencies, state agencies, packaging/ shipping/ mail services, transportation, to name a few of the areas of research we have been involved with. We take one to three areas each day, according to the complexity of the subject, and work to completion if possible. More often, we can only reach 90% of our goal in that subject or area, for example if we have to wait for another agency or research subject for completion of additional information, and then return to the initial area of concern to complete our progress. It’s a slow tedious process of organizing all of these areas until we finally have a solid foundation of strength that we can rely on as we step into the final mode of design and production.

Please bear with us and grow with us as we move forward, we hope the reward will be great!
