When I came back to One Greek Store last year, I totally revamped our website. You can see it at www.onegreekstore.com. The new design and improved functionality was worth the 3 months of development. Within the first month, we saw a dramatic increase in sales! That trend continued through the course of the year and has allowed us to expand our business.
Recently, I created another website to attract more clients to our business. Although One Greek Store has been successful, the overall fraternity & sorority market would have a limit. The embroidery equipment that we have can service many more potential clients. Therefore, I recently launched First Embroidery to provide custom embroidery services outside our established Greek market.
If time permits, I hope to launch a few more websites within the year in an effort to attract new customers. Hopefully, the success we recently experienced with One Greek Store will continue forward :)
By the way, I know its been a while, but I’m still kickin’ it.
So I started this post several months ago… and some how forgot to publish it – DOH!…
After some serious time spent evaluating what I wanted to do in the next stage of my life, I finally decided to return to my roots; One Greek Store.
Although the lure of a secure 9 to 5 job with benefits had some appeal -especially with the swarming media about our economy- I couldn’t resist wondering what I could do if I fully committed myself to an entrepreneurial project.
At this point in my life, I’ve had the benefit of receiving incredible training from one of the world’s leading retailers. Could I apply these new real-world skills in something else? In terms of money, I recognize that I won’t be earning as much as I did at my previous job, nor will I earn nearly as much as I could with a “normal” job. However, unlike any job I’ve held, there is no cap to my earning potential. What if I made millions???? Highly unlikely… but possible…?
There’s only one way to find out. Leap of faith #2 – here we go…
