Disco Valante has a manufacturer! This was the hardest obstacle in the development of the company. Language barriers, minimum requirements, lack of craftsmanship, and over pricing of labor were some of the issues that have made my dream a nightmare at times. Being a startup company with limited financial resources isn’t an attractive partner for many manufacturers. Many do not have the want to work with a company with orders that are not gigantic. However, after many months of searching and viewing samples, Disco Valante has decided to do business with the People’s Republic of China.
Now, I’ve got to brush up on my Chinese greetings and customs, establish a Chinese LTD, get a Chinese lawyer, and set up flight and hotel arrangements for July and August. I’m really excited! The next two months will be a whirlwind of traveling, production quality control, marketing planning and overseeing every facet of the business. I’m everyone from the president to the janitor in my operation.
I can now see that my dream is truly real and going to happen. I want to thank everyone that has read my blog, sent me an email or wrote about my efforts. It has meant so much to me. Thank you!
