My new site design is almost finished.
I have to admit now that the date is getting closer and I am getting more and more stock in I am starting to get really nervous!
With the mooncup and cloth pads, it was quite manageable, because cloth pads don’t take up a lot of space and the mooncup sold very slowly (hard to get Malaysian women around the idea of trying it – even Tampons are not popular here).
But now, cloth diapers are over-taking my space! And also I’ve got two wholesale distributorships that have been offered to me in the last week. It’s very exciting, but it requires me to sink in a lot of my savings.. so I’m taking a huge gamble… I hope it pays off, otherwise I will really be stuck with a lot of inventory and wonder what I am going to do with it!
Of course this is in conjunction with my full time day job, which I have to keep on top of.
*Sigh* I hope it all goes well. My biggest wish is that Eco-friendly practices become such a part of Malaysian life that whenever someone takes a 1-use plastic bag in the shop, they get given a dirty look by others with their stylish Envirosax – like what happens in the major Australian cities. And also of course I hope to be able to set up some women to do some product manufacturing this year – create some small microfinancing.
Wish me luck! Looks like it’s going to be a nerve-wracking year for me – either I come out at the end of it with nothing in my bank account and a lot of cloth diapers (lol, think I can eat them?) or I will have a nice brick and mortar store selling CDs. Really hope it’s the latter!
