Midwest Furfest... [Oct. 20th, 2009|11:46 am]

Hey guys!

I have, as usual, a rather large suite reserved at Midwest Furfest and am gauging interest on a social networking party on Friday night...  I don't think there are enough business-owning furs to constitute an effective gathering, HOWEVER, I believe that using the power of Linked In, I could gather enough professional furs to make it worthwhile.

What are your thoughts?

Hey guys!  So, how was your Anthrocon?  Hopefully profitable all around!

I couldn't make it, my business partner wanted a 4th of July off for once, and since he's worked the last three for me, I figured I owed it to him.  We had a decently busy weekend, big 4th of July sale...  Much fun was had!

You?

Hi guys

My name is Valentina Caicedo and I run Mixedcandy the costume company with my husband Adam :). We have been in business for a few years and it has been a big roller coaster ride. Currently located in Florida and love it. Running our own business, and being able to juggle social life has been the biggest challenge. I am still trying to respect "me" time while not going crazy burning myself out.

I love being able to run something myself and being able to set my own rules. Being your own boss has a lot of perks and I would not want it any other way.

Yay for all nighters and con crunch ;).

Entreprefur Membership... [Feb. 16th, 2009|12:03 pm]

It's crazy how time seems to get away from me sometimes... As I'm sure you can ALL relate to, eh?

latinvixen02's recent post, commenting on something that whiteyfawks had said, in addition to a separate post from fenn, all made me stop to wonder why we're not having more such conversations HERE! Well... Heck, ANY such conversations here!

We're all, I think in very similar situations, dealing with the same economy and in many cases, the same customers! I think that, we all have plenty to share and plenty to learn from each other...

SO... First off... Let's see about upping our membership numbers! I don't want you to make a public post about the group, but if you know any furry business owners who aren't in here yet, send them an IM or email and ask them to join.  And if you've not done so yet, make a separate post introducing yourself and your business!

And... If you really want to help out, click HERE and check the "Someone posts a new entry to entreprefurs " box in order to get an email when one of your fellow furry business owners makes a post... And comment! This will never be a massive community with hundreds of members. There aren't a ton of us out there and we really should be taking the time to get to know each other!

Advertising [Aug. 17th, 2008|12:34 pm]

Hello everyone.

I has gotten so quiet here...
My question is: How much of your income do you regularly spend on advertising?
What kind of advertising works for you?
Do you target a specific clientele or just put it out for everyone to see?

Entreprefurs meet-up?

So...  For those going to Anthrocon...  When are you free, when are you busy and do you have any interest in meeting up at some point?

Thanks to woodychitwn for inviting me to this group :)
I think its a very nice idea to have a lj group for business owbers.

My name is Richard Nightfox and i run Black Paw Productions.
I started the shop back in 2003 together with Jaryic but he left the business one year ago.


The shops main purpose is to resell the sofawolf press products in europe.
Besides this i support german artists who want to sell their art and also the eurofurence products can be found.

Insurance [Jun. 3rd, 2008|02:45 pm]

Hello everyone,

somehow it seems like I am the only one posting here anymore?
I have one question: How many of you have an insurance for
their goods?
I have my stock in the -2nd basement-level and the strong
rain yesterday reminded me, that I really should get an
insurance against flooding soon. (That place was flooded
once a few years back before I moved in.)

Dollar hitting 1/1.6Eur [Apr. 23rd, 2008|01:40 pm]
Furry Business Owners

suranfox
Hello everyone,

I am curious. How is everyone here affected by the continuing breakdown of the dollar and the continuing decline of the US-economy (if meassured in gold or wares instead of USD)?

For me it gets cheaper every day to import my wares from the US but it has become nearly impossible to sell anything to them.
If entering the US had not become as unfriendly as it is now, the US-conventions would start to look really interesting.
