Resting Phase Complete…Begin Activity Phase

By | Deep Thoughts | No Comments

logoOne thing I’ve noticed is that I will get into some new project that gets me really excited. This leads to a massive spike in production while I experient with all the different ways I can tweak the new awesome thing I created. Then after a bit I run out of steam and suddenly my awesome thing has become a chore and it takes more and more effort to get over the hump and produce more now only kinda awesome things.

The solution to this is to skip to a new thing when I tired of the old one and keep my momentum up. Then after awhile the shine comes back to the old dull thing and I jump back to making the older thing again. That way I can always be getting into new things while keeping the tried and true ones alive.

Getting the new job took a little bit more out of my Burgleteens momentum than I had planned but every now and then its good to take a break and re-fill the creative juices. After awhile I get to the point where my brain is all rested up and starts getting antsy to get back into the studio for more thing-making.

I’ve noticed random cool things happening the last week or so which probably means its about time for a flurry of activity. I’ve been checking out micro-controllers lately…the lightboxes are about to hit another level!

 

October Update

Started cooking at a new place here in town called Bruncheonette. I needed something steady during the day to pay the bills while I work on growing Burgleteens into a full fledged brand. Got the coloring books back from the printer and they turned out awesome! CRAZY high quality. I’m glad I went all out because you can feel how legit they are the minute you hold them in your hand. A couple stores in town grabbed a few and I’m sure they will do well.

I’m still getting used to the new schedule but it looks like it will work out and I’ll be able to keep grinding on Burgleteens at the same time. Over the next few days I’ll have some new plush sprouts ready to put up in the store and then its on to more lightboxes!

Coloring books will be on the way tomorrow! Super shout out to everyone who pre-ordered! Enjoy the free stickers! I could not have made it without all the support!

Today is the day

By | Deep Thoughts | No Comments

My Creative Enterprise classes are wrapping up and tonight is the big presentation. There is going to be a couple hundred local business leaders in attendance. I’m pretty nervous but I’ve been going over my speech a 1,000 times today so I’m starting to feel like I got this. Luckily its hard not to smile when you see my stuff so I know everyone will at least be interested in what I have to say. Im going to read through my speech again….and again….and again…

Taking the plunge

By | Deep Thoughts | No Comments

Well last night was the opening orientation for the Creative Enterprise Program. I’m still very nervous about the whole thing but in a good way. It seems like lately I have been able to finally get Burgleteens out there enough to get the whole thing rolling. I can feel it picking up momentum and I’m very focused on keeping in control of the beast. The next month and a half I’ll be getting some amazing guidance from local business leaders and the program seems super polished. That said, I have an elevator pitch to make for Thursday night’s class. I’m not horrible at public speaking but its not my strong suit either. But I got this!
