My Adventure in Mail-Order-Land

I used to own my own business, KLW Enterprises. I designed and sold buttons and bumper stickers to the pagan and new age markets. It was an experiment in running a small business, and was successful in that it confirmed some theories I had and disproved others (even though as a business venture it was a flop).

Some things I learned the hard way:

I had fun running KLW Enterprises, and I'm glad I did, but I think I'll wait for something more lucrative and/or more satisfying before I jump into my own business again. Perhaps I could have made it a relative success if I had been willing to devote more time and energy to it, but it would have quite a high bar to jump over to beat software QA on an hour-by-hour basis.
