I’m taking a 2 week break to visit some relatives and attend my little brother’s wedding.
The store opened up 2 and a half years ago, and I didn’t think I would be away from it this soon. After my brother told me he was getting married in Greece, last January, I panicked and took as many steps as needed to get the store ready for my departure.
I ceded more and more control to the new hirees and in July we achieved an all time high in earnings (the new X-men titles by Jonathan Hikman, House of X, Powers of X, helped by bringing many new people to the store.)
Last weekend at Flamecon reinforced my confidence in everyone. We had such a great time, and connected with so many new fans. A very common reaction was “I live in Crown Heights, I didn’t know there was a store there!” (which says alot about my terrible marketing lol).
Here’s some photos of the show courtesy of Sabrina!
But yesterday cemented that confidence.
I worked on a New Release Wednesday for the first time in months.
While I was catching up on last minute work, feeling guilty about not being attentive to the customers picking up their books, I glanced up from the computer to see how social everyone was. It was remarkable! It’s the kind of feeling your grandma has during Thanksgiving, when all the food is served and she can finally sit down to eat herself.
