long and winding road to create the business

It's Time!

It has been a long time coming. In fact, it has been years in the making since I first wanted to work in the catalog mail-order business.  Yes, that's right, mail order.  I wanted to start a business in Canada for a retailer to store and ship product in Canada for Canadians.  That didn't work out and I spent the last (we won't say how many) years in financial services.  I moved to the US so this business starts here but I have visions of taking it to Canada one day to fulfil that old dream.   

All these years later I finally get to bring my interests into this wonderful business - ecommerce, pets and operations.  I haven't "worked" a day since leaving my job and focusing on this adventure as I love every minute of it.  But enough about that!

Then Tails and Tweed was born (can I say that for a website?).

The journey so far has been exhilarating, scary, and seen a few bumps and setbacks along the way.  I am sure there are still many challenges ahead, but I am looking forward to the journey and greatly appreciate all of the support I have received from family and friends.  I also want to thank all of the people who I worked with, and worked for, over the years who taught me so much which gives me the confidence to take this forward, starting small but planning big.

Here we go...
