I’m a couple weeks out from being “caught-up.” I am back on schedule after falling behind a couple weeks. I mentioned in another post that it was the result of some supply issues combined with my own piss-poor ability to gauge my production capabilities.
It’s awesome for the checkbook to be slammed with orders. Everybody I know would love to be booked-up for weeks in advance. Except me.
I hate it.
Don’t get me wrong–I love my customers. It’s tough to say “no.” I just can’t get a grip on being committed for two months or more at a time.
In a couple of weeks I’ll have all my current orders filled. Hopefully, with happy customers–those are my favorite kind. After that, I’m gonna take some time to build what I want. No more advance orders. It just doesn’t agree with me. I’ll be adding items to the “In Stock” section of the website here and there, but I don’t see me taking any more orders.
