Risks and challenges
First off, there is relatively no risk at all. Unless for some reason both me and my helper die, then I will definitely put in my will to refund your money. We have no plans on dying anytime soon but rest assured if it did happen you will not be at a loss. I do like lilies if you'd like to make flower donation to my grave.
As for challenges, aren't there challenges and obstacles with everything? I could have a certain crate in mind and the company could stop producing them. I could go to the post office to deliver your packages and they could be close due to one of her 765 holidays a year they celebrate. I could be on my way to my laptop to check for orders and trip over the obstacle that I call my cat.
Please have the utmost confidence that I can conquer all of those obstacles and then some! I can order new boxes! I can come back the following day to the post office! I can step over my cat! This is life. Things come up. I'm determined to make this work so I will find a way.
Here are some possible/realistic problems that could occur:
An item that we were planning on purchasing is no longer available- Buy another one. We have many different suppliers to buy from. This might affect the cost but we will deal with it. We will do the same thing if the cost of an item rises. We have built in some wiggle room the purchase items. We don't think we will need to change the prices of our Date-Crates higher anytime soon. (Working on lowering the prices actually!)
Delay in shipping items to us for the Date-Crates - We have about a 3-4 week window for finding, buying, and receiving items for the Date-Crates. If for some reason we haven't received all the items in time we have a window for shipping. Instead of shipping on the 7th maybe we push back to shipping on the 10th or 12th of the month. We aim for packages to be received by the middle of the month. As long as we can meet that deadline we should be fine. If we can't, we can supplement the missing item for something else that we can receive in time.
