    LOL! Yes! I left out the part about also being divorced because there's no way my husband would have lived under a bridge.

    But for Owen, I wanted to also commiserate with the crappy day job...

    Not to pile on, because I think you have a ton of great potential, but I think you need to get another paying job so you can pay your bills while you work out how to make your business a success. ...

    Ugh, so I'm now thinking I just can't afford to do this right now, or deal with the headache of it. I posted the same question in the "fulfilled by Amazon" subreddit and one person said this:

  4. question for people selling on Amazon or Ebay

    I decided that I would try selling my highest margin item on Amazon, so I signed up to be a seller. Then discovered that all products have to have an EAN, UPC, ASIN, or one of another product...

    Thanks Harold. I didn't have any problem with Chrome, either. But I'll take a look at the certificate.

    I'm not sure about reptiles but mammals and...

    I'm not sure about reptiles but mammals and rodents definitely need more than a cage to live in. Humans are pretty arrogant (as a group, not individually) in thinking that just because they're not...

    Really?! Ack, I'll investigate that right away. It shouldn't be the case.

    Harold, thank you for the feedback. I'll do as much of that as I can (which is a lot of it).
  8. Please review and/or suggest improvements for this product description

    One of my new products has been getting really high page visits ever since I listed it, but no purchases. A few days ago I tweaked the description to make it more appealing and customer-friendly. ...

    First, what does this have to do with small business?

    Second, as a former dog rescue leader/volunteer, I have a thing or two to say about stuff like this. It really, really depends on many...

    Okay, that was my original thought before I started doubting myself. Thanks, Harold!

    Something Special Pet Supplies is the name of the LLC that I registered in the state. I want to gradually change the name to Sit. Stay safe! from the branding perspective but from the legal...
  12. Need to file a DBA (or fictitious business name), how many permutations

    do I really need to cover?

    Sorry for the message spanning the title and into the body of the post. So I bought the domain sitstaysafe.com for my rebranded shop. I'm keeping the business...

    Ah, thanks Turboguy. I think that's the approach I need. I'll adjust my spreadsheet to track it that way.

    I was also wondering about discounting umoving items, so that's helpful as well.
  14. Okay, I'm recording cost of goods sold when I buy...

    Okay, I'm recording cost of goods sold when I buy merchandise, but only aggregated. I need to start keeping track of it on a per-unit basis. I can't use QB because the inventory feature is two...

    Hi Guys,
    It's been a while, I'm doing fine. My shop is also doing fine, still slowly growing and I'm in the middle of re-branding. I need some help trying to figure out a simple way to track the...

    Well, first of all, and I don't mean to be rude, but.... this is a stupid thing to think so get it out of your head right now. Nobody thinks this. Even when I launched my online shop, while I...

    For me as a new business owner, the biggest frustration is not having an easy way to identify a budget for advertising. It's very trial and error, but that doesn't help with picking your very first...

    Oh, of course I may consider that also. I do boosted Facebook posts every other month with a small budget. Once I finish my pivot, maybe I'll just increase my budget for those instead of a magazine...

    Great feedback, and it all kind of echoes what I've been thinking. Not echo chamber (bad) but confirmation of my suspicions. In this past show (that triggered the OP), I had three goals: sell...

    Sorry, those are good questions. I was ignoring the cost of goods, although I know that's inaccurate. I am perhaps idealistic but when I pay (say) $2000 booth fee for the weekend show, I would like...
  21. Selling at shows versus media advertising - seeking opinions

    I've done a few B2C shows and expos now and I'm seeing a track record that they are rarely profitable. You can't make back what you spent on the booth fee in the large ones, so if there's any ROI...

    I participate on lots of forums, generally for entertainment value more than information, but all the same. I know a high quality forum when I see one, and this is one. You did a great job with it,...

    The second Farrell's episode blew my mind. How can you take profits out of the store before paying off your debtors? That's finance 101, isn't it? I can see pulling profits from one store to prop...

    Oh, I need to go watch that one. I accidentally skipped over it during all the browser probiems.

    I think what is clear is that they do drive the business into being broke but they often prop it...

    They must have fixed something on their end because starting last week I could stream the show to my computer again. So now I'm caught up again.

    The second Farrell's episode made me catch my...
