Am I Crazy: Chronicles of an Entrepreneur Part 7

It’s been one year exactly since my last update on the quest to bring my new tool design to the world…and today is great news. Actually Friday was the great news…I received my first royalty payment from sales. Yes indeed, we landed our first two orders about two weeks ago with some larger US retailers and it has converted into my first earned income in over 6 months. Now I have a partner in Shanghai, an apartment an office, and we start shipping August. We will see this Christmas how the public likes kelvin. If all goes well, then 2009 will be a great year…which I think it will. That’s why I am playing this crazy game…because I am thinking kelvin.23 is going to be the next Leatherman or Swiss Army Knife. One Million kelvin’s…that is my motto for 2009.

And to top things off for my Monday morning news, today I landed a contract to design two snowboard tools for a snowboard binding company in Italy. I am super excited about it and a tad nervous. Can I come up with something cool???

So things are good financially…finally…for now. It was a close call. I had to sell my wife’s mountain bike last week just to have spending money to make it through to Friday. Now I can afford a beer at lunch this afternoon. Funny how things go. It will feel even funnier after a few cold ones.

To all aspiring dreamers…don’t give up! Fairy tales do come true.
