Another Day

Still working on keeping this blog of mine updated. I’ve decided to look at it more as an online journal of sorts relating mostly to my professional side. We’ll see how that goes! Haha!

Anyways, project cropping up: I’m going to be finding a venue for the Emmett Yo-Yo Club to meet at weekly (probably on Saturdays from 1-2) I’m looking at and hoping for the Gem County Recreation District in downtown Emmett since it would be easy for people to find. If I actually go forward with the club I’ll need to either bring a stock of my own yo-yos or contact some of the online stores that indicated they help new clubs and get their yo-yo club ‘care package’.

Additional Project: Going to be working on creating a county/city bonfire, would have music and other entertainment, a fire of course, and vendors (food, drink, and other). The goal is to provide a safe fun and consistent place for teens-young adults to hang out, enjoy music, the first, and good food. Other benefits are that by having this event small businesses from Emmett would be allowed booth space. Not sure yet if this is something to be charged for but the background goal is to provide a venue for these small businesses (like mine and a few owned by friends in the community) to market their products.

Finally before I go to bed, the last project: I need to put together a catalog of all the DTIndustries clothing designs, develop wholesale options, and services and package everything together in these catalogs. The next phase is to get a few stores to carry my shirts. I’ll start with the catalog and go from there. 🙂

That’s all for now, I’m sure there’s more but I need to get to sleep, my old boss asked me to come in for a day so I’m gonna be helping out at Copy+ in Emmett tomorrow.

In the words of TechN9ne…

I’m surely a slacker! I’ve essentially disappeared from this blog for the past month. Don’t get me wrong themikemonty.com, I do love you, I just have to make money and keep my other projects alive! Haha, all jokes aside I’ve been a busy little boy, or so I say.

I’ve held two contests for DTI in the past month, one was a yo-yo video contest where I had the entrants put the DTI company logo at the beginning of the video and the website address at the end, doing cool tricks throughout the video to win a free shirt if I picked theirs as the best. I had three entrants for the contest and picked the winner earlier this morning, so see that stuff check out http://dtistore.com/julyvidcontest/.

The other contest was for how many fans Double-Take Industries has on facebook, for each level of fans I reach I decided to give away a certain quantity of t-shirts, the ultimate underlying idea being that if I have more fans I’ll have more shirt sales thus more shirts to give away to give back to the fans that keep my company alive. As of this post I had 168 fans for DTI, just need a little under a hundred more fans to giveaway two more shirts at the 250 mark. If you aren’t already a fan of DTI on facebook you should be, I mean, who passes up the opportunity to win free stuff, especially edgy shirts? 🙂 To become a fan click on this convenient link: facebook.com/dtindustries. I was especially excited about this one because it had been a long while since I’d recorded a video for any of my projects so I recorded myself having the drawing which you’ll be able to see on the fan page.

That’s all I can think about right now, there has been a lot more but I’m trying to keep this short and sweet. Hope you’re all having a great summer!
