    Graphic Design:  Ads.  Trying to wrap up the Cyclocross Magazine ad.  Deadline is Friday.  I like our idea; a bit different – as many of our ads have been lately.  Photosourcing challenges.

  • Sales Management:  Working on 2013 Plan.  This year continues to go very well at Seven Cycles.  Not sure if we’ll be able to grow by the same amount in 2013 but we’ve got so many great projects on deck that it might just be possible – projects that I can’t share in the TIAY journal; too top secret.
  • Note:  I had a long meeting today with someone about how to get a job in the bicycle industry.  That’s a tough one.  Every company is different, and every had different requirements.  One of the most consistent ways of getting a job tends to be previous experience in the industry.  A bit of a conundrum.  There are a lot of ways to gain experience without having past experience to get you in the door.  If you really want to work in the bike industry, work hard at it.  Seven doesn’t require past industry experience.  The Studio doesn’t either.  While it does help in orienting the experience, it’s not a requirement for most jobs.  We discussed some ways this person could prove interest and gain some industry experience at the same time.  And have that all happen in a relatively short period of time.  We’ll see if this person takes my advice to heart.  Time will tell.
  • Graphic Design:  The new Studio debit cards and club cards are done and we will see them at the Studio in about a week.
  • Time Marker:  “Rode” the Wednesday Morning Worlds ride.  At least part of it.
