Sharing some of the Enza Living products today. The on-line stores has been an adventure that’s taught me way more than I anticipated. Finding the balance between bootstrapping and getting the right technology has not been easy but like everything it boils down to the right person. I have been looking for someone who will become part of the project as we develop and listen to what people want, but mostly someone who has actually built ecommerce sites is key. I think I’ve found that person, time, again will tell but for sure I’ll be reflecting on this experience and post a ‘lessons learnt’ blog to help anyone I can avoid at least a few of my mistakes.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts
