I am so happy to announce that Amazon, the largest web store in the world, have bought my Bag-all bags. So today Micke and I worked on shipping them out to Amazon. It is really hard to understand how to do everything the way Amazon wants it to be done, but I guess once you get a hang of it, it works smoothly.
Today we shipped out Bag-all's new 4-packs. I am doing four different 4-packs. The first one is a Women's Travel kit with the Hair dryer bag, the Wash me! Please, Ballerinas and Lingerie. These will very shortly be available here at bag-all.com. Will keep you posted.
This is what it looks like behind the scenes when Micke and I work. He takes care of most of the paperwork. I am so grateful he does it as there is nothing that more effectively kills creativity than receipts and book keeping.
Last night Micke and I had a night out. First we went to one of our favourite places on the Upper West Side, The Smith Restaurant. They have amazing seafood and on mondays they have pork that has been cooked for 24 hours.
Then we went to "The Tuesday Club", an event organised by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for entrepreneurs held at the über cool Swedish pr agency Mother on 11th Avenue. This guy is guarding the entrance.
The speaker of the evening was Fredrik Heghammar, a swedish guy who is a Senior Executive Producer at Google Creative Labs. A super secret place where a bunch of people try to think up the most mind-blowing ideas for the future. Fredrik of course couldn't talk about most of it, but he shared the story of his life and how he got to where he is today. He ended his talk by concluding:
* Chase your passion. So true! Whenever we do what we are passionate about it doesn't even feel like work.
* Be true to yourself. Only way to go!
* Be brave. Do it even though you are scared!
* Embrace opportunities. I think hard work makes us open to recognising opportunities when they appear. If we aren't prepared I think we might miss them.
Keep your headphones protected with our new Black headphone case. The bag has a bottom so it stands up by itself, making it perfect for storing the headphones at home in-between uses.
To make it even cooler, add a monogram to the bag, or maybe a line from your favorite tune?
The case is lined with a stylish red and blue striped fabric and if you prefer letters over pictures, fear not! We still have our old Headphone print in the my cases collection.
