Are We There Yet?

In August 2011, both of our companies will officially (legally) be 3 years old. In general, we started printing t-shirts in December 2005. Since we've been doing this for some time now, we tend to forget how much we've been growing. Sometimes it just feels like such a natural progression that we don't notice that our warehouses are getting larger, or that the amount of jobs we print are increasing, or that we are steadily becoming more and more efficient.

Don't get me wrong, there is no way we will EVER forget where we came from. When you own your own business, you remember everything. Every dollar. Every extra hour of work. Every sacrifice. Every leap of faith and calculated risk. Every failure and every success. Everything matters.

As we enter our last couple months in our current office, we can look back and appreciate the things that we've done. At the same time, we are also focused on what is to come and the next major frontier for ourselves. Each time we've moved, we've collectively become less nervous and more excited because we know what's at stake and we are becoming more and more confident in our abilities. We know we can succeed and we know we're getting closer and closer to that American dream. Our mindset is that the time is ALWAYS now. Our time has come.

After months of searching for the perfect new home for our businesses, it looks like we may have found it. Keep your fingers crossed!
