|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).
