That's the question we set out to answer this past week! And it wasn't for click bait. It wasn't to sound cool or to get likes online. It was a LEGITIMATE goal that we set for ourselves!! You may think it sounds crazy, but that's okay, because WE DID TOO! But we wanted it to be crazy. Actually, we needed it to be crazy.... So all of this started with a bit of a thought experiment: We wanted to figure out what the max capacity of our little shop was. Why? Because we knew we'd
Welcome back to yet ANOTHER addition to the beloved serving board series!

If you’ve been following along with our 100 Serving Board series, you know that so far we’ve built 100 serving board/charcuterie boards to sell to realtors as closing gifts.
So here we are…in a new city (a HUGE city)…with our shop all set up and ready to go…but we know NOBODY! This may sound a bit scary or sketchy or intimidating, but it’s the reality of the situation. So where do we go from here? We need to find clients who have the potential to lead to more clients and who have good connections within the community.
