It's Saturday morning in Miami and while the majority of the country is still trying to thaw out from the Polar Vortex, we're visiting family on my birthday weekend as we get ready to kick this thing off.
There's been so much hard work from my family and friends. Once we get to the point of finally making the site live, I'll definitely thank them all by name. The most difficult part of this process now is letting go...meaning, I feel as if things are ready with product, shipping supplies, printer, etc. but being a perfectionist, I'm still going through things and tweaking them on a daily basis.
I like one picture, I don't like another. This one is too bright, this one is too dark. Should I use a comma here or just take it out? It may not seem like a lot to some but it's those little details that wakes me up in the early morning hours just so I can stare at a computer screen and make the final decisions. It's my motivator. Looking at my family at the dinner table and seeing their excitement as we talk about this project and knowing it's all about to come to fruition is truly the most rewarding aspect.
We don't know what will come of Big Fly Gear. As anyone who's ever started a business knows, you wish for the best but plan for the worst/unexpected. We truly feel we have a wonderful story to tell with our products. We also feel our products are made with top-notch fabrics your entire family will enjoy. Either way, if you're reading this, we hope you enjoy the journey as much as we have...
