On the up-swing

After sitting on my hands, waiting for my manufacture to get back with me, SassaB™ is on an up-swing once again. That is what I have noticed...nothing happens for weeks and then all of sudden we are full steam ahead!

I have struggled for months with communicating with our manufacture in China so I am excited to report that we have hired a Sourcing Agent. This was suggested to me months ago but I wanted to give it a go myself and save money. Very quickly I found out that "doing it myself" was not an option. It's a relief that I can turn over the negotiations and order placing to someone whom understands the business and the language. It'll be worth the money, for sure!

We still do not have a logo...I'm almost in the frame of mind to type SassaB™ in bold black letters and slap it on the dye-cut. Of course I am kidding but some days I do feel like taking the easy way out. Here is where that word comes into play again...tenacity.

Unfortunately, we will be missing the "Back to School" launch but honestly, I'm just glad to be moving forward at all. I have learned that just because you have a great idea for an invention and the best intentions for making your invention a reality, does not mean there is any guarantee that it'll one day be for sale.


  1. Better late than never! Keep up the good work!

  2. Been keeping you in my prayers. It has been a tough journey, but I know you are inspiring so many.

    I have a bookshow I'm heading to, trying out some new technology for marketing...hoping you'll look at it and laugh along with me. I got some endorsements and then put it to music. Here it is:

    Keep on keepin' us up to date. I just can't wait to see what SassaB is!!!

  3. Hi Deedra, I just watched your video - very cute and catchy! I'll make sure to pick a few up when they are on sale so let us know where to get them.

    Thanks Anonymous above - I agree!!!

  4. Barnes & Noble or your local Christian Bookstore. :)

    PS do you think you can give us any little clue about what SassaB is?

  5. Hi Tracy, I have been soooo busy. I am glad you are getting there. Chin up, you will be selling someday soon! I have been working everyday on my product and I want to do a "Big" unveiling on Product X. It may take me some time though as you know it is a long hard road. MI

  6. Deedra,
    I want to give you (and everyone else) a clue - actually, I want to just tell what it is but I am working so hard on SassaB™ that the feeling of "YAY!" when we do launch will be somewhat minimized if I tell what it is now. Does that make sense? I promise, I'm not just being coy and I will announce on my blog the moment I can!

    MI, email me and catch me up! :)
