  • Public shaming

    I have to tell you this just to shame myself into trying to be a bit more clever and business minded.

    Basically, I went to visit a friend last night to show her some things Id made.
    I showed her a range which I really like but wont make me much profit, and a newer range which I like and would give me 3 times the amount in profit.

    My friend had to point out that it would probably be better to make/sell the newer design as it would make more of a profit!!

    My head was in the clouds, I really like the first range but Im so stuck in the mud that I just couldnt make myself see the potential of anything else!!

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how much of a numpty am I?

        I think your being conservative,I would have said at least a 10 maybe even 1,192 out of 10!!!!

        I really need to step out of my blinkered ways.

          Its more like a virtual tomato throwing after I voluntarily put myself in the stocks.
          Its the only way I can get over my stupidity.

                Couldn't you put up the price of the first range so as to make more from it? Or am I being mean?

                    Oh MY GOD!!!!

                    Ive been trying to get a TOTAL price from a box supplier, theres been about 8+ emails and they wernt giving me the info I wanted always leaving out vat or surcharges etc.

                    I was getting fed up and emailed the full emails to my friend with an added message something like 'Chr*st allmighty, how difficult is it to get a price' etc....

                    I didnt just send it to my friend!!!!Guess who i sent it to...

                        hehe, yeah.
                        I always assume things are my fault as Im bad at explaining what Im after.
                        I got the distinct impression they were just trying to get a sale from the inquiry, they just kept pushing without giving me the info i was after, which peed me off a bit.

                              Yep, they gave me the informatio(finally) that I was after, they charge tax on everything!!

                              Seems they may not have got the message,but it was the most horrid feeling Ive ever felt when I thought Id sent it!
