No, not a sports league draft! Instead, I got the draft of the Letter of Intent for my the potential space for Zoe on Friday! When I saw the title of the email, I prayed, took a deep breath and then opened it. As you would expect, I had several questions, comments, additions, and changes. I made those to the document and sent it back to the broker at around noon. No word from him yet but I expect to hear more on Monday. It was scary reading it at first but as I started to think about it and apply what I've learned working at Commercial Real Estate companies, I began to feel more comfortable and confident.
Last night, I also sat down with the illustration of Zoe Girl and with Lisa's portfolio from her website and wrote down all of the thoughts and ideas I have about the future of Zoe Girl. I sent those to Cori in a bit of a free form manner with the question "Am I making any sense? Can you artistically determine what on earth I'm try to say here?" If anyone can, she can!
As I wait to see what will happen with the leasing process, I'll be continuing to contact wholesalers next week. It is a rather challenging conversation at this point, since I don't know yet when I'll need to purchase stock but as long as I get on their lists and approved, that is a big hurdle. It is a lot of fun to "Shop for the Shop!"
