Open For Business

Monday, January 3rd. The first official business day of 2022. It was also the first official day as Doing Business As Wahbee’s Woodworking.

Wahbee’s Woodworking began as a hobby. I would occasionally build some jump standards for a friend. Word of mouth led me to work with a couple of other people interested in standards or cavaletti. Nothing huge. Nothing fancy.

Among the first of my builds as a hobby builder

As last year progressed it became clear that I might not be able to keep this a hobby much longer. Then I learned of a school interested in my work for the coming year. Yes. A school.

As of 2022 Wahbee’s Woodworking is no longer a hobby. I have my D.B.A. business account, and I will be conducting myself in a much more businesslike manner.

I am so daunted. But I am so excited.

This unfortunately means I may need to raise my prices. Will I still have customers? I hope so. I can get myself in trouble wondering the what-ifs and fearing every bad scenario. Luckily it is still my side business and I have a successful full-time career.

But on the other hand…what if things go well?

  1. Congrats!! Welcome to the world of small business!! Those standards look amazing and the OTTB jump is gorgeous!! As a small business, marketing is your lifeblood, if you are interested, look into the free Facebook/Instagram ad managing classes. FB is evil but there are a lot of eyeballs on it and you want to market where those eyes are at. I can help if you have questions. Best of look especially with show season around the corner.
