Merry Christmas from all of us at Outlaw

Yesterday, we had our first real Christmas party. Every other year, we have had some kind of just-after-the-shipping-cutoff-standing-around-in-a-stunned-daze acknowledgement-of-the-end-of-the-craziness, because we were such a small team (usually just a duo) anything else seemed too exhausting. But this year, we had about a dozen people get together at the workshop for...

10 Good Reasons to Give an Outlaw Gift Certificate (instead of, for example, a cheese ball)

10. Your uncle is lactose intolerant, which means that a cheese ball is the absolute worst thing you can give him... ... and the fact that milk is in darn near everything means that he really could use a little olfactory air cover, if you know what I mean. 9....

Countdown to Christmas: Day 5 - The end is near!

Ah yes, that weird feeling of driving off a cliff. I remember it from last year. At some point, the Christmas orders slow down as people realize it's probably too late to shop for Christmas presents online. Last year, we set that date at 12/21 and updated the web notification (that bar across the top) to say we were out of town through the end of the year, and then we left. We drove off our own cliff. At least, until the new year...

Countdown to Christmas: Day 16 - Using all the brain cells, with varying degrees of success

HOO boy. This week has been one of the most intense of my career. I'm in Orlando right now, waiting to get on the airplane that will take me to LA for Renegade Craft Fair. I've been at a conference for Mozilla employees, contractors, and contributors. In addition to having this here fancy soap business with my husband, I also manage social media for the Mozilla Developer Network and the View Source Conference. Meanwhile, our business absolutely BLEW UP from the minute Russ dropped me off at the airport. Seriously, it was insane. That Yahoo article propelled us into a great month of sales.

Countdown to Christmas: Day 20 - Leaving for a week. Yes, really.

Mozilla, the makers of Firefox web browser among other things, is one of the early stage funders of Outlaw Soaps. I don't mean that they are buying shares in the company or anything, but the last several months (some of them quite lean) have been subsidized by my freelance job with Mozilla Developer Network. It's really fun work and the company is absolutely fantastic. I'm beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to work for such a great organization and also receive compensation for that. I used to work in tech and really miss the sense of humor and purpose-driven big thinking that are the hallmarks of that industry. (that's me giving a talk on customer-driven innovation for the View Source conference in Portland last month)

Countdown to Christmas: Day 23 - Stock alert! Unicorn Poop is critically low (on Amazon)!

The sugar is hitting the fan! (ok, that was a cheap Unicorn Poop joke) I imagined that I had sent all the stock we needed to send to Amazon for the entire holidays in early November. A couple weeks into November, it was clear that we would have to send more, so I sent another hundred or so bars. In the last month (Nov 3 - Dec 3), we have sold 309 bars of Unicorn Poop through Amazon.
