Sleepless in…Atlanta – Blame it on the Rain | Nitrile Glove update | Today’s COVID Update
Happily Dapily Wednesday! Woah, we’re half way there … Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Would you believe me if I told you I never went to bed last night? Of course you would. There should be a good reason, and I gotta blame it on something … so I’ll blame it on the rain. When I saw that this was titled “(Official Video)” I had to chuckle. For those that don’t know, this was a lip-sync scandal the likes of which music had never (to my knowledge) ever seen. The funny thing is I still like to listen to this song.
I indeed did not go to bed last night. I was working on sourcing Nitrile gloves like a maniac. I know how to source in China like the back of my hand (I often “beat” Chinese sourcing agents, finding things cheaper or faster than they can – muahahahaha.) But, for Nitrile gloves that is not the motherland. The motherland is Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam and a couple other places – before you get to China. It’s not that you can’t find them in China, it’s just that it’s not where the best prices are, or availability for that matter. Sourcing in new countries is a whole new skill. Fortunately I am a fairly quick learner, but sometimes at the expense of sleep.
On a positive note, I have some PO’s placed and will have some gloves on the way before you know it! Also, of major note, since I have found the big daddy factories, I have the ability to source any quantity needed. These factories don’t even want to talk to you if you’re not ordering 1, 2, or 5 MILLION gloves. So, for those of you that need 1, 2, or 5 million gloves I am here for ya![Read more…] about CEO Daily Update — 5.27.2020
