Here's the link again. The way I wrote it in the last update added a period to the end, so it didn't go anywhere.
Hi Backers (and friends)!!
I know it's been forever. Like, 6 months forever. But I've been a busy lady! I've moved into a fancy new kitchen, and have an even fancier, BRAND NEW kitchen waiting for me. Well, I'm waiting for it. But I won't get into that, it's a long, boring, frustrating story.
But as most of you know, I quit my day job! Started full-time self employment May 1, 2013. Yippeeeee!! And I've been working my tail off since then. Have gotten up to 30 accounts from 10-12 at that time. And just contracted with TWO sales reps (one in the Bay Area and one locally), so that number should be climbing!
I got my website live, and the website selling my goodies online went live a couple days ago. Woot woot! Cheers to Humboldt Beer Works, not only for being my online retailer, but because they're pretty incredible people. http://www.humboldtbeerworks.com
I am gearing up for a bridal show at the end of this month, and making holiday baking plans. I'm also hoping to do a major (international, what what?!) trade show next spring. For that, I was going to run another Kickstarter.
Buuuuuut then I got accepted to Pave. Pave is basically a cross between crowd funding (i.e., Kickstarter), an investment, and a loan. I won't try to explain it all, because they do a killer job on their website. Anyway, it's super innovative and very intriguing. I'd suggest you all have a look just to check it out, but I also thought I'd start spreading the word about it in case anyone is interested in becoming a Backer over there. The rewards there are strictly financial. No, not as fun, but definitely more practical. Here's my campaign: http://www.pave.com/campaign/5214dfb6afe8f920b8a68349. From there, you can explore the rest of the site, too! Feel free to pass the link around, too.
I'm hoping that with that amount of money I'll be set with equipment purchases (which I've already received a loan to cover most of), working capital, and dealing with growing pains (lots of those lately — YAY Boujie's growing, but OUCH!!!).
Anyway, that's what me and Boujie have been up to! Hope all is well with all of you lovely people.
Love, beer and brownies,
