Ask the maker

From time to time we will ask people to post questions on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

@VeradaleGuy via Twitter asked: What was your biggest difficulty in getting started in the business?
Thanks for your question. The biggest thing to overcome is money. I started out small, making a line of kitchen tools. That start meant a low overhead, small shop, limited amount of tools and machine needs. Over time, I could expand the line. First came a stool, then a chair. It has been a balance of slow and steady growth, keeping overhead small, and persistence.
