So this business thing. I announced it on a forum, on Twitter, and now here…
I’m now running an all new shop at Absinthe-Shop.com. There was an absinthe shop there already, but it’s gone, mine is in the final stages of development, and I’ve throw a quick splash page up for the continuity of relevant content. It’s all very exciting!
The launch is going a tiny bit slower than I wanted as the shop is in association with a company in Germany, and they have to get certain things sorted on their end before my stuff can launch, but all in all I’m extremely positive about the whole thing. I don’t miss the old part-time job at all (I’ve even been too busy to miss people much!) and I’m working my ass off on stuff I love.
Absinthe + web = happy girl.
I was aiming to get the site launched by next Friday, but the guy taking care of certain stuff is on holiday and won’t be back in until late next week. I could be frustrated with this (especially as I didn’t know he was going on holiday during, what I consider, a critical time) but I’m cool as anything. I’m looking at it as a little extra time to get everything just right. The whole business opportunity came on like a whirlwind and it’s not going to hurt to have a few extra days to smooth the edges and knead out any kinks. I probably could have launched on my original schedule, but this way is going to get me more sleep.
So, I shall launch when I launch, and it will be ready when its ready. I have plenty to keep me busy until then. 🙂
