For the past few months, I have had a tiny eBay venture called Jack Swain that I thought I could turn into an internet department store. In the time since I started on this, my free time has decreased dramatically, my ability to find merchandise that matched up with my original merchandising idea has decreased, and my interest in the project has waned.
It is simply the wrong idea at the wrong time, as previously conceived. So I have decided to pull my one item, close down temporarily, and focus on getting something in there that people want. The new Jack Swain has no definite timetable, but I’d like to do something a little more interesting and easy to store than just shoes.
I’ve also got to figure out a way to squeeze in something at night other than answering email, talking on the phone, and reading message boards. A little better time management would greatly help what I’m doing, even if I regress and just sell shoes again.
