I am taking a break from my blog for a while. I am channeling my limited creative energies into setting up my new company, my 'top secret project', and as you can see from the archives list over there on the right, I have been unable to maintain a regular posting regime for a few months now. I simply don't have the time nor the focus for this blog... The new project is pretty much all I think about.
We have created a ''pre-launch site" and this will go live very soon (weeks, not months). It is a page where you can sign up for email alerts, and also access our facebook page and our twitter feed which I am using as an alternative to full-on blogging about this project.
When we have finalised our manufacturer and supply chain arrangements, we will launch the website and - fingers crossed - launch a really exciting business. The website will also include a blog.
Things just keep on falling into place for us, in the most incredible, serendipitous way. At some point I'll introduce you to the third member of our team, a really lovely woman called Shannon, and you will read that story and nod your head and start to suspect, as we do, that the universe is on our side.
Thank you for your patience and support and encouragement and love and everything. I'll be back to tell you when the pre-launch site is up, and I hope you will join me on this next journey.
UPDATE ON WHAT'S HAPPENING...
is now almost the end of October and quite a lot has happened behind
the scenes with the project. We have employed some very clever
industrial designers to work with us on fine-tuning the prototype, and
we should be hearing back from them in the next couple of weeks. We're
really excited about what they might have to say about our design, and
also about how we manufacture it.
spent some time with a marketing and branding consultant and we are
starting to focus on how we want to position ourselves in the market.
Meaning, who are we and who are our customers?
We have also been having some really interesting discussions with a friend who is a successful entrepreneur about how we are going to launch the product, and a new strategy is being considered. Therefore, we've held off announcing our website and linking to our facebook page and twitter stream.
So it's all still happening, just not online yet. People keep asking us when we're going to launch. I can't say for sure. We really hoped we would be up and running by the end of this year, but that goal seems to be a bit ambitious. BUT we're not ruling it out - if things keep falling into place as they have done all along, we might just surprise ourselves.
