Deep in the summer, and pushing the limits.

* Excalibur Brothers – 2 products completing production, 1 launching on Amazon (polishing cloth), and preparing a cohort 2 program for Blimp Method.
* Finance / HR / Management – with all these projects and changes, staying organized is key.
* GFA Kids – still struggling on how to optimize Chinese payment / booking / teacher scaling.
* DWebASAP client launching store and Fock hat ready to ship.

Many more – but those are the top of mind.

For those who want to hear the full week plan for Shadstone Limited, Mike’s company (removing sensitive info) – here it is:

Week Plan July 3 – 9, 2022 Shadstone Limited

Happy July Fourth – the American independence day! I often reminisce the days in USA having beach parties and BBQs on this holiday.

But we are pushing ahead and Monday is a normal work day – got plenty of calls and plans packed in to discuss. Such as Blimp Program expansion for cohort 2 with Aubrey, and pushing limits on various projects we have.

Last week we did quite a bit – and Thursday was Flamingo Handshake morning auction and then evening Shadstone monthly team call (intense day!). Plus pushing hard to get 2 new products production completed for Excalibur Brothers (dealing with QC issues!) and processed payroll with GFA kids income balancing with teacher payments and factory payments.

We are truly doing international and cross border business more than ever before. This is our strength, and while it is challenging (to be honest I’m exhausted just typing it up) – the hard things are the valuable things.

Akitai brand is back and new products are being shipped to Amazon.
Excalibur Brothers polishing cloth launch (with various softwares), and flask/leather glass case QC / packaging finish.
Blimp / Excalibur Brothers We are planning cohort 2 (new group of franchisees) in July. Podcast / Webinar / Email strategy worked well last time, alongside having some products ready to show new franchisees to get them the interest to lock it in.
NowShenzhen deal making, David is talking to some new initiatives. Also the kombucha sales campaigns and events.
GFA Kids – growing more and adding to the team, need to find more teachers and streamline the booking system with the payment system.
Fock hats and product line – dwebASAP products are also ready the fock hats were received by our warehouse and now ready for sale. Community seems to be ready for launch, need to finish up web store, and make high res photo /video to get the last bits ready for this client project.
Indigitus – more product development discussions.

Then the corporate stuff
Financials – cash flow on these cross border payments as we scale up.
HR – finding more designers, more teachers, need more to grow.
Management – working on more training so that the team can make tasks in portal and help bridge the systems and the team.
