Hello Readers,

Well just an update on my wood working business, been quite interesting so far. Starting a business with minimal capital is definitely a challenge, but so far I think it has been a successful adventure… of course until Uncle Sam takes his share, but such is life. So far I have made a few sales, which is encouraging for sure. My goal right now is to basically turn over the profit for product line investment and expansion. So far I haven’t raised any money through my crowd-sourcing campaign (added some updates and gallery photos), but I believe through hard work I will get to where I want to be.

Nothing happens overnight. Stay patient. Keep working and it will come.

Ethan – quick question – which legal business entity did you choose? LLC, Inc. etc? I want to start something myself, small, but am not really sure on the ins and outs of filing. If you don’t want to talk about it on LJ you can PM or, if you’ve covered it in your blog let me know and that’s where I’ll start.

Don’t want to hi-jack your blog so I won’t provide too much detail about what I want to right here.

Appreciate any insight you, or any other LJ’s have.
