Start a Business, Sell Cool T Shirts, Make Lots of new Friends!
One of the things I enjoy about my work with Lost Bay Trader is the opportunity I have to meet lots of new and interesting people on a daily basis. I do much of my work online and via e-mail, so I am never far from a computer or similar device. The phone rings all day. One would be inclined to think that the T-Shirt business would be somewhat mundane, if not downright boring. One would be wrong.
I find it truly amazing how so many people will give of themselves so freely to a complete stranger that is honestly no more than a bunch of letters coming from a keyboard. Nearly everyday I become involved in online conversations with folks from all over the world. These individuals start out simply as customers, but somehow after a few messages back and fourth we become friends, and in some cases that friendship lasts beyond the business transaction.
I hear stories about who the customer is buying a T Shirt for, and why that particular Lost Bay design is special or important to them. I get requests to bring back a design for someone that has long ago lost their favorite shirt – sometimes there’s a picture, sometimes I have to imagine the design from their description, which can be quite fun actually.
I get involved in online and phone conversations and chat about the weather, the news, TV shows, whatever happens to come up. I try to stay away from politics. I hear family histories, war stories, medical woes, birthdays, and upcoming events in peoples lives, whom in most cases I didn’t know were alive before the phone rang. Some send pictures.
The truly impressive aspect of the whole thing is that in every case, I find some meaningful connection to each and every one of them. The world really is small and Lost Bay Trader has become my New Front Porch!
