I had another tough week, where I took more new orders than I managed to ship. As I said before, this is because I have started to ship the older, larger orders. They can take a full day to put together all by themselves, and some of them will take 2, 3 or even as many as 5 days to fill. One order is for $1,700+! Guys, that is a HARD week of work to ship 1 order!
Still, I am plugging away and, if things go well, I should be caught up to about the first week of October by the end of today. I will still have a few older, much bigger orders, and I will email those customers, but at least I have a plan for shipping them. As for the rest of you: I am going to start shipping as much low-hanging fruit (i.e. easy orders) as I possibly can starting Monday. The goal is to ship as many old orders as possible with as many easy orders as possible in the few days I have after Thanksgiving and before I start my December break.
I’ll update you again on Dec 2. After that, you’ll hear nothing from me until Dec 31.
