When I started Bubele, I intended on doing everything myself in order to save money. I am finding this incredibly difficult as I watch other companies grow who have a bigger budget. I am starting to wonder if I should look for an investor for Bubele who can manage the marketing/sales so I can concentrate on designing and producing.
Taking on an investor would probably restrict me in ways, and would probably increase my prices because I use high quality materials, even higher quality than major brands, but I keep my prices competitive.
On the other hand, an investor could manage things that I am having a hard time with.
This decision will take some more thought!
