    @Bean_counter are you getting away from making pens? What are you into now?

    Hey Ray Im not getting completely out but there are 2 main reasons I’m selling off.

    1. Every year my pens sales go down and this year has been no different. The only thing that is moving here locally are gun pens which I will still make. Everything else moves really slow now. I have a large inventory of made pens which I need to sell off. I am keeping a few of my favorite kits to make here and there. My main focus is going to be bowls, forms and art pieces. I’m not very good at it but I’ll focus on it and become a pro haha

    2. I have a large inventory of unmade kits and blanks. My wife and I took Dave Ramsey’s financial peace university and we have really buckled down on debt. The only thing we Have left is a student loan I have which will be paid of this month and then we have hers. Besides our mortgage we hope to be debt free by the end of next year. For us his class has been truly life changing. By selling off inventory that I don’t need we will get to that goal a lot faster.

    Pen making is fun and I still enjoy it

    Gatsby is a great pen.
    Dave’s teaching has made a huge difference in our lives. It isn’t always easy to stay with it but the rewards are unbelievable. Good Luck and stick with it, you won’t be disappointed.

    I’m glad you are vouching for it as well. From everyone we spoke with that have stuck with it, they all say it truly works. Live like no one else so later on we can live like no one else.
