In 2014, the switch to a new online store platform to help improve our bottom line did not work out as well. Much like cheap cinches, we discovered that although the upfront cost was a fraction of the provider previously used, the new host included hidden costs and technical issues which continued without resolve. In retrospect, the attempt to simplify the ordering process had been a good one, however, surprising rise in social media censorship that coincided with drops in materials sourcing quality brought me to recognize how I could be of little benefit to others without a sustainable operation. With the added pressure of the “Affordale-Health-Care” act, I was prayerfully blessed with a full-time position in another industry allowing a more scientific study into heirloom and organic gardening techniques with plans to further the cinch materials research and development in a sustainable manner.
