I’m scheduled to meet with manufacturers on Monday in Melbourne. It will be exciting to see their factories for the first time, as well as to meet the individuals that I’ve spoken to so many times on the phone already.
While there, I’ve also managed to set up a meeting with someone regarding my side-hustle idea. She’s a long-term expert in the industry, and I want to validate the potential demand. Plus, I can see some partnering opportunities where we might be able to help each other out.
Her feedback will give me a view as to whether or not it would be worth the time and effort to get this new thing off the ground while I’m waiting for my recycled plastic products to be made (which looks like November now at this rate).
