When looking for an office to move my Reseller business into, I had three requirements
- I wanted it on Main Street, in the small town I live in. It was important to me to help revitalize the central part of our town.
- All utilities included. It is important that my office expense would remain the same each month, as my income isn’t.
- Storage space and packaging space was more important than the size of the office. In order for this business to grow, I must have a place to store at least 2,000 items
As you can see from today’s pictures and previous blogs, this particular office had what we required and more.
The large french doors coming into the office from the terrace bring in a lot of sunlight. We’ve put a futon as well as a TV with a Fire Stick. It gives it sort of “waiting room” look. Truth be told, it’s a place to ‘dump’ items that we’ve sourced and waiting to be sorted! Looks can be deceiving.
The long countertop with the cupboards underneath is our packaging station. I would love to get a Dymo printer, but we will be sticking with the dinosaur inkjet we presently have. The wall hanging above is an inked tapestry from India. It matches the colors of our business logo. Nice thing to have to brighten up the room and your eyes naturally go to it when you enter the room.
The other picture shown is the kitchen. It really is beautiful though we didn’t need anything as extravagant as this. I jokingly said we should rent it out to Tupperware or Pampered Chef representatives in the evening. I found a larger inked Indian Tapestry with greens and grays to complement the slate floor.
As of tonight, everything in the office is on hold.
I will be leaving town in the morning, by train, and be in Michigan’s Capital. No, it is not Detroit. I’ll give you a hint, it is below the middle knuckle of the mitten. If you are from Michigan, you’ll understand.
Stay tuned and I’ll explain tomorrow why!
