It’s Probably a Good Sign…


when you go to open a business checking account, and the employees at your bank tell you that they think that your business is going to be huge… and that they want extra business cards to pass around… and that they’ll order candy bars for holiday gifts.
Sorry for the lack of posting recently — I’m dealing with administrative and packaging stuff that’s little fun to do, and even less fun to try to write about in a creative way.   And it’s taking a long time.  But I will write about it at some point… for those reasons… :)  And it’s so close to being done!

    I cannot wait to buy one of your bars! I live not too far away from you in So. Cal, so maybe I will come and buy a truckload 🙂

    Cyndi – Haha That would be fantastic… and would make for an amazing pic on the blog. 🙂

    Nivedita – I never thought that a visit to the bank could be so much fun!

    Tina – Oh, thank you! I definitely will. I’d love to sell them in Napa… and have a reason to go up and visit whenever I could. 🙂

    FattyPR – Thanks, dude 🙂

    G – Yeah, Whole Foods has been a on my mind a lot recently…

    A business checking account makes the whole thing seem very real, no?

    OMG, yes… That, and sending in the deposit on product liability insurance!

    There certainly seems to be an awful lot to consider and get lined up. I admire your thorough and disciplined approach. I wonder how many have the kitchen and the business cred to get this all pulled together.

    It’s very exciting to watch this develop into something. I join your bankers in thinking will be… What is the word for something small enough to retain it’s artistic and personal quality while big enough to be profitable and justly famous??? Anyway, that’s where I’m sure this is going!

    Go git ’em, girl!

    Rainey – 🙂 THANK YOU so much!!! Those are words that warm a burgeoning entrepeneur’s heart. Some people have advised me on how to build it up and develop a large distribution network, but really, I’d just be thrilled to build the business into a nice store (with some kind of river of chocolate that people can have their bars freshly double-dipped into, of course) that’s a special place in LA for locals and tourists to visit. The artistic and personal qualities of this enterprise really are what interest me. Chocolate’s fun, and I enjoy sharing that happiness with people more than anything else.
