It's really interesting, helpful, and sometimes stressful to play both sides of the retail world. I am a manufacturer/wholesaler AND a brick and mortar retailer. This means, that I get to learn what is frustrating for both manufacturers and retailers since I have both roles.
I was standing in a barn with broken glass at my feet, my arm up a two foot high glass pillar vase and my jeans soaking wet from where I accidentally dumped a vase of water on myself. My friend needed some help washing glassware, so I was pitching in.
Sometimes I run across folks that think my business is cute or a glorified hobby. I'm not trying to pay for my soap habit, I am building an honest to goodness business. The day it becomes a glorified hobby I'll stop making soap.
