Sorry, it’s been a while since I last wrote about my business conception; it’s been rather exciting and busy. But I finally have the whole process of importing nearly worked out. I say nearly because as soon I do comes the big slap in the face!
It’s easy for things to go wrong, and all the planning in the world doesn’t mean you will actually get things right. But it’s a learning process and the journey has been exciting, stressful and rewarding.
Baby Cots Online was born on July 1, 2010 to proud parents Quirky Gal and Quirky Guy.
We have been very excited since our new “baby” has come into the world.
The only one not happy is Mr Fergus, my furry child, who at times gets very cranky that the laptop gets more attention than him. He has had to do some adjusting, but he now has a new friend, Wayne, the chauffeured dog walker.
Wayne picks Mr Fergus up every day and takes him out with 10-20 other furry friends to all different parks.
Mr Fergus has also lost some weight by socialising…who would have thought!
Like any new parent we have experienced lots of sleepless nights and days filled with nothing but crap. But overall I wouldn’t change it for the world. It certainly beats owning a traditional business any day.
QuirkyCo now has some employees to help with Baby Cots Online: Kellie, Leigh and Carolyn.
Kellie takes care of all the important eBay things like loading templates, copywriting, website development and social media activity.
Leigh is my right arm when I go away – he steps in and makes sure all the items get sent out, emails get answered and the courier turns up.
Carolyn is the bookkeeper that has to put up with my mountains of paper and lack of bookkeeping skills. It takes a few people to keep the Baby Cots Online afloat, but you can’t do it on your own!
Stay tuned for my next adventure, when we are off to China to find lots more exciting things to buy and sell back here….Very excited….
