First, let me apologize for being so delayed in my blogging. We have had some recent illness in our extended family and with the new school year starting, I'm so off-schedule, it's ridiculous.
I have spent a decent amount of time recently, thinking about what the future of Basil the Cat will look like. Will I continue to grow the business myself? Will I take on employees other than the ancillary staff that I have now? Will I eventually sell the company? If so, who will take it over? As I don't have any daughters, there isn't a natural progession of this idea with the fantasy of me "passing it down" to a family member, especially considering my sons, as brilliant and amazing as they are, aren't really interested in artistic endeavors. What am I to do?
Flash back (or forward), to a few days ago (actually, at this point, it was probably weeks ago), when a very loyal customer contacted me and said " I wish you could see all the family pictures that my girls draw - in them, I am always wearing my letter "A" necklace." I responded that I would LOVE to see a picture and she sent me this picture (and gave me permission to share it with you).
So this got me thinking, THIS girl is the kind of girl that I need working with me! Please note, the drawing of this necklace constitutes intellectual property and is therefore copyrighted...so don't even think about taking this idea ;)
