-Store infrastructure is almost set up and is currently being tested.
-First batch of prototypes is at the paint shop right now; once they come back we'll know whether our paint spec and finish is where we want them to be. This is one of the last physical hurdles, and it opens the door for us to start selling stuff!
-Many of you have been reading along and messaging me regarding our current in-development project, and I'm very glad to see a real reaction from the community. We're sharing this one publicly as an experiment, and it's gone quite well. Expect more "From The Labs" segments on the other items we're working on.
-Store launch: I won't have an exact date until we get our painted parts back in-house to evaluate, but I'm hoping it will be before the end of the month. We have certain items in stock already, but for some of the big-ticket gear we will open for pre-orders first. This is important because it allows us to make a larger order from the factory all at once, which keeps cost (and prices) lower. Once things get rolling we will have a steady inventory of products and shouldn't have to do this again (maybe when we introduce a new item but hopefully not).
Important! We need your help! The only way the whole pre-ordering thing works is if people know we exist. Now is the time to start building up steam; tell your friends, tell your coaches, tell your coach's friends. Like and share us on facebook, drop us a line on instagram, come here to the site and say hello! We've got a pile of neat product ideas we want to share with you and it only happens if we can get this train rolling. And that's not to mention all the resource and video content in the works--did you think we'd forgotten? Nooo come on, we wouldn't do that to you. That's in the works but we've got to get the dang store operational to keep going there. Apparently businesses need to have income. I know, I know, weird, right? But still. Spread the word!
And as always, Keep Earning It.
