Be Careful What you Wish For…

Odd title I know, but I will explain as quickly as I can, you see I really wanted my own supplement company, and I mean my own brand, I wanted my name and my marketing and it was a vision of success and big cars, but the problem is I got it….

You see before looking into any other option, I simply found a supplier that had a low minimum quantity and purchased from them based on the lack of competition at their quantity level.

OK So How Wrong Was I This Time?

Immeasurably, I was so wrong I could happily hang my own head in shame, what I didn’t think about was the fact that I was starting with an unknown brand, no name no promotion already in place nothing.

The time and resource that is required to move a brand from unknown to big enough to supply the manager at wherever you work the bird and walkout for a better life is massive, and much bigger than I thought.

How I intend to Fix it…

I intend, and in fact have already ordered from a wholesaler that I found so that I can start selling mainstream products, those that people have already spent millions promoting, and I will use the profits from that to build my brand to a point where it can compete, exactly what I should have done in the first place.

Conclusion

I am a TOOL, simple as that, do yourself a favour and if you take no heed of anything I ever say at least follow this bit of advice, make sure that you really want to do what you think you want to do before you do it!!

Work Until you Die? or make a stand now ?

This article confirms what I have thought for some time now, we need to make a stand because for most of us the future is set in stone and it is cold, hard and very unpleasant.
