So I’ve been bip-bopping along learning lots of new things. Sometimes, it’s been fun, sometimes it’s been overwhelming, and sometimes I’ve face-planted from tripping over some huge piece of information I didn’t know.
Here are three more rabbit holes I’ve been falling down (down, down, down). I’ll just talk about these three for now. It’s all interesting to me, but I’m not sure how long it will hold YOUR attention. You never know though. It’s getting easier and easier to start your own business, so you just might benefit from knowing these things some day. 🙂
So I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “the more you know, the more you know you don’t know”. Well, that is a great phrase for a new business owner. Haha – o yes it is.
After Nathan and I had completed our first prototypes, we needed to find places to set up some tables, show off our prototypes, and ask people for feedback about them. I thought this would be easy and wasn’t expecting to have any trouble. …As usual, I learned a new lesson. 🙂
The quality of your printed marketing materials can make a big difference in their effectiveness, so it’s important to know how to pick out a good printer! Nathan and I just purchased on for Natril Gear, and I learned some handy tips. 🙂
Back in July, Nathan and I went to our first events representing our new company, Natril Gear. It was exciting, we met a bunch of great people, and we learned a lot of things to do and things not to do that I want to pass on to you all.
My “education” all started when we decided to have an “official company-sponsored contest” as opposed to a more relaxed “ask your friends for some help, then pass out a prize” contest…
Open this blog post to see: 1)a great video of a little boy’s reaction to have just learned how to ride a bike, 2)information about 2 easy contests you can enter to win Natril Gear pannies, and 3)a quick survey to take that’s SUPER IMPORTANT, because it will help us determine the name of our product and our company tagline!
Get ready to partner up with Natril Gear! We want to build a great company together, and we need your help. To show how much we value our customers and fans, Natril Gear is giving away 4 pairs of free panniers – yes, 4! If you’re a biker, this rocks! If you’re not a biker, you can start out right with some great bags, or you can always give them away to a friend!
“…wait a minute. Natril Gear is giving away pa-what’s? What in the world is a pannier?!” Ha – we agree! Contest #3 below is a chance to RENAME panniers. Check out the pictures, and get ready to win!
I have some super-exciting news, and also I’d like your help on what could be an industry-changing expedition!
