Shirts and Mistakes

I just put t-shirts on pre-sale for the Chalkboard Manifesto. And I have no idea what I’m doing. I put an arbitrary number of shirts I have to sell that’ll net me a healthy amount of profit. Or at least that’s what I’m assuming. I don’t really know how much shipping will cost, so I just decided to price it into the shirts and worry about that when the time comes. There’s a lot I don’t know, but I’m fine with figuring it out as I go. I’m okay with messing up.

I’ve already messed up. I accidentally set the quantity to 1, so my t-shirts were sold out after my first purchase, haha.

I figured that I’d learn more by throwing the shirts up for sale and learning as I go, rather than planning and planning. It’s like programming: You learn more by actually coding than reading. Coding and messing up and fixing things. Well, not to say planning should be ignored. Maybe I didn’t do enough planning, but I guess that’s something I’ll learn.
