I feel like I am sitting on a pivot or a fulcrum. I know I will be changing directions or pivoting. I should also add time or a clock to the mix! The 'when' is the question.
The Pivot story started in May 2017 after my husband retired. We immedieately went on a trip to visit family and to vacation out west. The trip ended with me braking my hand and other bodily muscle pulls. Sewing tool belts was out to the question. At this point I had sewn nearly a thousand tool belts. It would be years to get my hand back to near normal. I am not one for production work anyway. Plus, I needed more playtime as my husband had retired. That fact forced me to pivot toward finding a new manufacturer, since the previous one was not working out. After much work or time, pivot accomplished.
So we nicely got started with US manufacturer number 2 and then came a halt in sales and manufacturing. Meanwhile, I am getting older and catching up to my husband.
This year I turn 65, the pandemic has turned a corner perhaps? We want to travel more. I want to focus my attention to other things. So here I sit on my pivoting point or fulcrum wondering which way to swing. I have sold out of the sewing tool belt my first design, the design that I made for myself over 10 years ago. Do I try to sell my business, or just sell out of my stock?
