This Might Not Work

"I'm looking for something that might not work."  That is one of Seth Godin's favorite phrases, and I love it.  I have spent most of my life over-preparing in order to avoid embarrassment.  But I'm learning to just run through the fear.  So, here is my something that might not work -

I am launching a Spring/Summer collection on April 1

"You have been making clothes for a while now.  Why might this not work?"

Here are the reasons:

1.  I just set the date last weekend, and I don't have any patterns or fabric yet.

2. Instead of taking orders and custom making the pieces after the launch, I am standardizing my sizes and producing to sell on April 1.

Do I have enough time to do this?  I don't know.  But if I don't set a crazy date like that, I won't get anywhere.

And, to make it a little crazier and a little more likely to not work -

I am self-publishing a book on April 29

I can't wait to see if this works...
