Nathan and I have started to make some pannier prototypes. We plan to make about six different prototypes, then take them out and get feedback from everyone we can to determine which ones we want to put into production. So far we have begun work on four of them. See pictures in this post!
As of Friday, April 29th, we’ve had over 260 hits on the “Logo Designs – Vote!” blog, and 35 people have taken the survey (that’s about 1 in 7 who took the survey). Thank you so much to everyone who looked at our logo options, took our survey, and gave us feedback! We are proud to present Natril Gear's official logo(s)!
We almost have a logo for Natril Gear! This post has our top three logos from the graphic design company we're working with and our top three logo ideas that Nathan has developed. Take a look, and then fill out our 3-question survey to let us know your thoughts. Thanks so much!
Nathan and I were meeting with one of our trusty business mentors for lunch the other day, and we started talking about some of Nathan's new logo designs for Natril Gear. Our mentor told us to be very careful with our logo, because he said it could wind up being more important and recognizable than our business's NAME. Woah!
The lawyer I spoke with who told me about profit-sharing partnerships also suggested a second idea that could help us get professional help and also save money: offer a retainer.
Recently, someone recommended a great and creative solution to the dilemma of forming a team when you don't have much money, and I want to share that solution with you.
Nathan and I have been getting an increasing amount of feedback about the way we are starting our business…or NOT starting it. While some people are applauding our efforts, others are scratching their heads and saying, “Why haven’t you guys started yet? It’s been over a month now.” So I wanted to talk about our business start-up strategy so you can see our reasoning.
Finances are an area you don't want to play around with because there can be very serious repercussions for even honest, innocent mistakes. A CPA is a fantastic counselor to have on your team. Even though they have a relatively high hourly rate, they will add immense value and take away the stress of having to make financial decisions on your own when you're not ready yet.
