Since I announced Biscuit a few weeks ago I have received many encouraging emails and comments and calls, and I so appreciate the support.
A lot of people have expressed that this is their dream too, and how did I do it (even though I realize I haven’t officially done anything yet), and what the process is all about, and I think this video best expresses what it feels like:
In that analogy I am clearly Bruce.
Comcast, texas water service, government regulations, company agreements, finance, web development, landlords, LLCs, quickbooks, The Word ‘No’, business plans, contracts, contractors, leasing agents, POS systems, etal are Ms. Trunchbull.
Actual design work and the bedding is the cake.
And you are all my auditorium full of Matildas.
Now back to the cake. It is delicious, and I love it and I want it, but sometimes you don’t want to eat the whole effing thing.
Stay with me here.
I love designing, I love that I am working with my best friends to bring this product I completely believe in to market, and in our own store, it’s an incredible honor and opportunity…But sometimes you just want to say: someone else, can you take a bite out of this cake for me? And when you are starting a business, the answer is usually…No.
Ewe’ll ‘urt Cooks feelings.
Or something like that. So I (and Isabel and Christina) am/are eating the whole thing. And I know in the end when we stand triumphant with chocolate on our faces, it will be worth it, but sometimes it is just like blegh.
That is not posed…that was just me taking a maybevomit break over the sink. Which is so sissy because SweetPete did the toilet for me.
And I know that is just a little bit, but all that progress means I can move into the back office space tomorrow, that is a HUGE bite out of our cake.
And each comment, each follow on Twitter, each like on Facebook, each of you who sign up for our opening announcement…Y’all are all sneaking some nibbles of the cake out from under from The Trunchbulls watchful eye and I am SO SO grateful for that. I know Isabel and Stina are too.
Thank you kindly, and please keep tuning in.
BRUCE! BRUCE! BRUCE! BRUCE!
