Two Novices, Dozens of Boxes and Inventory September 26, 2012 12:51

Our first inventory session started off by Ashley and I staring at each other trying to figure out our first move.  It was about 10pm as we sat surrounded by boxes in our warehouse (also known as home).  This is the moment that everything we are doing became real. 

There is no reason to hide the fact that Ashley and I are new at this. We both bring important skills that are propelling this business forward, but at the end of every day, we are on a learning curve. 

This photo of our late night inventory session – where we counted and priced and documented every item in our opening inventory – is a perfect illustration of how crazy this ride has been. No fancy warehouse, no assembly line of employees. Just us, some wine, music and our amazing supportive mom to help us stay motivated to sort through and organize dozens and dozens of boxes.
