Okay, cool! I'm glad you're still going... after reading it all last night, I feel involved in your process! haha

What about the part about your manufacturer wanting you to sell at a higher price, or he was gonna stop supplying you. Was that your Chinese guy? What do those guys even care about prices!? And who was pressuring him... I was very confused about that part!
Yeah I logged on the yesterday and saw 50+ notifications and was like "HOLY COW WHAT DID I DO?!" :rofl: Much appreciated!

The Chinese guy was the one who was trying to control my prices. Why? I have no clue! You would think he would make more money if I sold more... Maybe his other customers (my competitors) were complaining? His loss. Fixed that by getting new custom designs made that I own all the rights to and by getting a USA manufacturer.

Honestly though looking back, that was one of the best things that ever happened in my business. I had been trying (unsuccessfully) to design my own custom products for months prior. However, it wasn't until the Chinese guy tried to cut me off that I figured out a way to get those designs made.

I mean, who were THEY, to him... why in the hell was he letting them persuade his decisions. Just a weird situation... lol

Video converts really well. Since I dont know the first thing about making videos, I just got YouTubers to make them and then just put them up on my website.
This. is. brilliant.
