First and foremost, I apologize for the lack of posts lately; my life has been flipped upside down this past week, and I barely have time to do, well, really anything besides work. While this is not a bad thing, I have yet to really blog about my experiences with classes ending, finals, and the final phases of my student run business – the Butler Bed Buddy. I have personally been working endlessly on closing out our business for the current semester, and it has been insane.
We actually received a full order of 1,250 units of bed buddies, which are a pillow / stuffed animal modeled after Butler Blue II. For those who don’t know much about it, check out my other blog here about it. Anyways, 1,250 units is A LOT, and we ended up using pretty much the entire RBE “War Room” as storage. It’s known as the “war room” because that’s where all students in the Real Business Experience program meet as teams in order to form & run their businesses.
- The war room….AKA the Butler Bed Buddy storage room for now..
These bags (each filled with about 100 bed buddies) came in last Friday, and I have been working relentlessly in order to get out all current orders for people who have preordered online all semester. As of today we have gotten rid of about 4 & 1/2 bags, and we’re estimating to get rid of the rest of the half-full bag by Saturday, which is when I actually move out.
All in all, this has been a really great semester. I have been really pleased with my RBE team as a whole, even though we weren’t as organized as I would have liked for us to be. Here’s to hoping that next semester is better! I will blog more about the finals I have tomorrow night, so say a prayer or just hope I do good!
