Winners are Grinners!

You can read more about this on the Trade Risk website, but I just wanted to share an awesome achievement.

My team at Trade Risk was a finalist in two categories at last month’s Insurance Business Awards, and we came away a winner!

Above: My wife and I (centre) and two of the team.

We won the Best Customer Service category, which consisted of insurance brokerages of all sizes from all over the country.

We beat some pretty big competition, so it felt great, but also felt ‘right’ since we know we do such a good job when it comes to service.

In the past we’ve made the finalist cut for a few awards, but this is the first we’ve won outright.

I love what we do and what we’ve built at Trade Risk.  There’s so much more to come…

2018 Update

I don’t know if many people read or care about what’s happening here, but I should probably give an update about some of the things I’ve written about in the past…


So first up auDA.  I wrote a lot about auDA in the past.  Not so much about auDA itself, but just my candidacy for the board, and other candidates who I’ve supported over the years.

I have zero interest now in being part of the auDA board.  The whole organisation seems (from the outside) to be a complete mess, and not something that I’d want to be associated with.

My membership is paid up to 2019, but I doubt I’ll renew beyond next year.  Given the turmoil they’re going through, they might not even be around in 2019…

I sold my beloved business earlier this year.

I still love number plates, and I still believe the site had great potential (it was profitable as it was) but I needed to focus my time on my main business.

The new owner has plenty of enthusiasm and big plans for the site, so I look forward to seeing the next chapter.

Last year I acquired a nice low Queensland number plate (Q139) and I think that was the point where I felt I could move on from running the website.  The sale of the site partly funded the purchase of the new plate too!

I still run the separate heritage plate Facebook page, but I’m looking to move that on too.

There are some great memories from my time running the site, including my two television appearances, in particular my interview on The Project!

Trade Risk

Outside of my family, Trade Risk is everything to me.  We’re doing okay, but I won’t go on about that.  Check out the Trade Risk website to see what we’re doing over there.

That’s really it for now.  I don’t expect I’ll be posting much here anymore, but it’s here as my little record on the internet.

auDA Elections

After stepping aside in the race for a directorship at auDA this year, I’m super pleased that my replacement, Ned O’Meara, was elected to the board this week!

In further good news, Nicole Murdoch was also elected.

As auDA demand class members we couldn’t ask for two better people to be on the board as elected directors.

They join Tim Connell as demand class directors, and will presumably be soon joined by a fourth director to replace the departed Simon Johnson.

As previously stated it was a tough decision to step aside this year, and I only did so because I knew Ned would be a good replacement.  And here we are.  Job done. 🙂

Back to business, no more auDA

After a great deal of thought I have decided not to run for the auDA board in 2017.

I had announced that I would be running again, after missing out by just a few votes in 2016, but that will no longer be the case.

There are a few reasons for this.

First up, my company, Trade Risk, is going through an exciting period of growth and needs 100% of my focus right now.

My mindset towards the business has changed a little over the last little while, after seeing how much we’ve been able to achieve.

Instead of simply wanting to be great at what we do, I now want Trade Risk to be the best at what we do.

You can’t achieve that without 100% focus.

Outside of business I have a young family to look after.  If I’m putting so much into my business, the rest needs to go to my family rather than sharing with auDA director duties.

And finally, I’m just sick of all the politics and rubbish that is going on at auDA.

You could argue that is all the more reason to run, but I just don’t have it in me.  Business and family is more important by a long way.

The great news, and the reason that my decision was made so much easier, is that we have two fantastic candidates for the two Demand Class directorships.

Nicole Murdoch was already running, and now the domaining legend Ned O’Meara is stepping up.

If we as Demand Class members can help to get Nicole and Ned elected, it’s going to go a long way to returning transparency and integrity to the board.

A great face for radio

Shane Moore on The Project

Last month I travelled to Sydney for the record-setting auction of the NSW number plate ‘4’.

I was quoted in a Fairfax piece about the auction, which I thought was pretty cool.

The auction went brilliantly, and a record was indeed set, with the plate selling for $2.45 million under the hammer.

The next day I was on my way to the airport with my wife, when I received a message via Facebook from a producer at The Project.  She wanted to have a chat about the auction.

So I called her from the airport, and she asked what I was half expecting (and dreading!) – would I be happy to appear on the show tonight?

Appearing on a TV show like The Project is so far out of my comfort zone, but sometimes you just have to say yes and go for it.

Shane Moore Ten Brisbane

After landing back in Brisbane I had to head straight up to the Ten studios on Mount Coot-tha, where the interview was recorded around an hour before it went to air.

I made it back home in time to watch it with the family, and to be honest it was pretty cringeworthy!

That’s not necessarily because of how I performed, but because of the stupid questions the panel asked and the way it was edited together.

I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything different, but the whole piece was more about taking my wife to a number plate auction rather than anything to do with the auction itself.

They seemed pretty unimpressed that I’d drag my wife along, but you know, I don’t think she minded a few days in Sydney…

Jessica in Sydney

Overall it was a great experience, but I’d have to think pretty hard before agreeing to appear on that show again.

Here’s the video.  My part starts around the two minute mark.

Nominating for the auDA board

Shane MooreI am no longer running for the auDA board.  See my latest post here.

After narrowly missing out on the board last year, I’m pleased to announce that I will be nominating as a demand class director again in 2017.

A lot has happened since the vote in November last year, and despite our optimism at the time, much of it has been negative.

There were high hopes that auDA was heading in the right direction after what we heard from the Chairman and CEO, however communication and transparency have since suffered.

This culminated in the Chairman standing down prior to the Special General Meeting this week.

Earlier this year I declared that I would not be standing again, but the environment has changed dramatically, and as a result so too has my decision.

This year, we have the opportunity for two new Demand Class directors to join the board, and I believe the best options are myself and Ned O’Meara.

Despite the negativity of 2017 so far, I’m still incredibly optimistic about the .au domain space.

Direct registrations are still very much in play.  Following the AGM last year I felt there was no turning back, but as more time passes, more doubts are raised.

Will they happen?  Should they happen?  How will they be implemented?  These are all discussions I would like to be involved in at a higher level.

Personally, I am against direct registrations, and my stance has not changed since I wrote this piece last year:

We’re at such an interesting and important point in the .au domain space.  I love being part of it as a small business owner, and I hope to contribute in a more meaningful way as part of a stronger board.

Getting more media coverage

Thanks to my business I’ve managed to become a bit of an authority on number plates.

This has resulted in a few media appearances and quotes, which is great for the site’s SEO and also nice personally to have my passion recognised.

The latest contact came from a Fairfax journalist who wanted to chat about the upcoming auction of the single-digit NSW ‘4’ number plate.

NSW 4 number plate

I actually enjoy talking with journalists about plates, but I have to be so careful not to say too much, which is difficult when it’s a subject you’re passionate about!

I’m lucky in that a lot of owners of very significant and valuable plates (including single-digits) have been generous enough to share their time and information with me.

Often this includes information about how much they paid for certain plates, which is very sensitive to them, but they’ll share with me because they know I’m a locked vault when it comes to this stuff.

So anyway, it was a good chat, and the article was published here:

NSW licence plate with the number ‘4’ on the market for between $1.2 million and $1.4 million

This follows my first TV appearance earlier this year, when I was interviewed for the ABC, and appeared on their national news and business news programs.

Going back a few years I also had my first radio interview, which was regarding the sale of another single-digit number plate; Qld ‘7’.

That interview resulted from an article that appeared in the Brisbane Times, and was syndicated across other Fairfax properties including the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

That article included a link to my site, which was very appreciated from an SEO perspective!

Hopefully there is plenty more to come.  Doing interviews is way out of my comfort zone, but that’s generally a good thing long term.

PS.  That NSW ‘4’ number plate is expected to sell for around $1.5 million.  My flights are booked to head down to Sydney for the auction! 🙂

Not impressed NRMA

Last Thursday on my way to work I took a call from my wife.  She’d been cleaned up by a truck on the highway!

Aurion Crash

The photo doesn’t do the damage justice.  The doors were pushed quite far in, which isn’t surprising given that the car was pushed around 100m down the highway pinned to the front of the truck!

Nasty stuff, but at least she was okay.  Our beloved family car was not so well, but we had a good insurance policy with NRMA, so I wasn’t too worried.

I don’t insure with NRMA because they’re the cheapest.  I choose them because they have a good name, and it’s also where I started my own insurance career back in 2001.

NRMA’s online claim process is awesome.  The forms work so well, and being into anything involving ‘insurance’ and ‘online’ I was super impressed.

That’s kind of where it’s ended though…

Since then I’ve had nothing but broken promises.  Every update so far has come from me calling them, not the other way around.

And when I do call them, I definitely don’t feel looked after.

The person I just spoke with kept questioning what I wanted to know about the claim…

What do you think I want to know?  I just want to know what is going on because you never tell me!  Up until this morning I didn’t even know if the car was being repaired or written off.

It seems all NRMA want to talk about is the liability side of things.  As I keep telling them, I don’t really care about that.  We know it’s the other party’s fault.  They’ve already said they accept liability.  I’ll pay you the excess upfront if that’s what we need to get things moving.

So they have an awesome online system to get things going, but don’t appear to have the customer service side covered to follow it up.

I’d like to think we’re the opposite at Trade Risk.

A lot of our interactions start online as well, but our customer service staff enhance the experience rather than detract from it.

If people love Trade Risk’s online side, then they’ll really love our human side.

NRMA seems to be the opposite at this stage.

Anyway, just a little rant given that insurance is my ‘thing’.  Hopefully the claim process improves from here.


I received a call today (7/08/2017) from a very helpful assessor at NRMA.  She gave me a thorough update and answered a few tricky questions for me.

Unfortunately the repairs are going to take a few weeks, but I feel far better having spoken with this person.  Heading in the right direction now! 🙂

V8 Supercar Ride

I finally had my first ride in a V8 Supercar yesterday thanks to Steadfast.

If you’re into insurance you’ll know who they are.  If not, then the logo on the bumper below might be the first time you’ve seen them…

Nissan Nismo V8 Supercar

The ride was absolutely brilliant!

I’ve driven some pretty cool cars on the track, including the $400k Porsche 911 Turbo and a Formula Ford open when race car, but this was something else.

The acceleration didn’t blow me away, but with 650hp it’s obviously no slouch.

What did make a serious impression was the cornering, and especially the braking.

At points on the track where you think we should be braking, the driver (Dean Fiore) is still accelerating hard!

Nissan Nismo V8 Supercar

He then stomps the brake pedal and the car pulls up with incredible force, pushing your body hard into the belts.

The car then navigates the corner at speeds that you’d expect should have us spinning off into the gravel.

All this and he’s probably only pushing at 8 tenths of what he could do.  Maybe even less…

Of course being a follower of motorsport for so many years I knew how capable the cars were, but it’s not until you get into the car with a professional driver that you realise just how brutal they are.

Overall a very cool afternoon.  Thanks to Steadfast, Nissan Motorsport and carsales Racing.

PS.  I’d love to see my Trade Risk logo on one of these cars.  One day…

The story of was a business that I started in 2015 and sold just a year later.

It was a brilliant learning experience, albeit a rather time consuming one!

Along the way I posted about some of the journey on a private forum.  Now that the site has been out of my hands for a while I’d like to share those posts.

This is by no means the entire contents of the posts.  Just the ones that I think have some value.

26 June 2015

If anyone has hung around on car forums (like me) you’ll be familiar with the “build thread”. Basically it just follows the build of your car.

Well a few months back I started building a new e-commerce business from scratch, using the domain

I figured I’d document some of the “build” here if anyone’s interested…

So I picked up this domain from a forum member back in November 2013. I didn’t have any grand plans at that stage, but it was a brilliant name at a nice price.

Sometime I later I decided that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to build (or at least try to build) an online business with such a strong domain, so I started to very slowly build out the site and gain some rankings.

Fast forward over a year later, and the site now ranks number 1 for some good terms. Time to take the next step…

I spoke with a couple of wholesalers and found a supplier for all the products I’ll need. They also expressed faith in the business model.

But you can’t just repackage food and send it out without a licence, so the next step was to get a food licence from our local council…

But to get that I needed to meet the requirements of a “Food Safety Supervisor”. So I went and completed the necessary course.

And now I’m back into the food licence process, which is relatively involved and still ongoing.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before the licence is sorted out, and then I can open up the site for orders.

The site itself still needs a bit of work, but I’m slowly getting through it. I don’t have a lot of time outside of running Trade Risk and, but I have an inkling that could be something special if I get it right.

For inspiration I look at the figures for in the US. They paid six-figures for their domain, but they’re now doing $35 million a year in revenue…

If anyone’s interested in the following the story as the site moves towards opening orders and whatever happens after that, I’m happy to keep sharing.

28 June 2015

Note: The sections in bold are comments from other forum users.

Sounds like a bit is involved with re packaging food and selling it online, keep us updated on the progress.

Yeah there’s quite a bit involved with getting the licence.  I could buy the products pre-packaged and not have to get a licence, but I really want to get the packaging (in terms of design and branding) spot on, and the only way to do that is to package myself.

Great story thus far, I thought you would just charge a commission on leads ?

I’m not really interested in affiliate marketing or drop shipping. I totally respect the guys who can successfully run that type of business from home and enjoy a great lifestyle, but personally I love employing staff and being with my team every day.
I’ve done it with my insurance business, and I’d really love to add another similar sized business on the nuts side.

I forgot to mention in my original post about a few other relevant domains I’ve picked up. Some of these were bought from another forum member, and one on the drops:


I’m not sure that I’ll do much with them other than forwarding, but either way it’s been good to grab them when I could.

14 September 2015

Little update…
Food licence application being lodged today.
Account with a major supplier due to be approved this week.
Hoping to have some product available on the site by the end of next month.

25 September 2015

Food licence granted.
Account with major supplier finalised.
Packaging equipment purchased.

All is on track to launch the online ordering sooner than planned. Maybe as soon as next week…

My total spend so far would be bugger all. A couple of grand tops.

I came across an article recently which lists the sale price of at $700k!

I’ll post here when the ordering goes live, and update when the first order comes in…

Good stuff. I think this would be well suited to one of those monthly subscription models.. nuts are a pretty addictive snack

Yes absolutely. I registered last year. Who wouldn’t want a new variety of nuts delivered fresh each month (or week!). :)

When I decided to go down the path of developing the site I started keeping a container of nuts on my desk, and it’s been a million times better than raiding the office chocolate box when feeling a little peckish. I’ve actually dropped two belt notches since then. I have no idea if that’s to do with the improved snacking habits or just an overall better diet, but it can’t have hurt.

Great story and a great food product to be working with – doesn’t spoil quickly, growing recognition of health benefits and is actually quite expensive on per kg basis.

Yeah for sure. Another benefit is that it’s a product far less likely to be ordered from overseas websites. Not impossible of course, but I think it’s a lot different to ordering electronics or clothing etc.

And with the food licence requirements there’s an extra barrier to entry that (hopefully) some people may find too difficult to bother with.

Who knows how well it will work, but I haven’t put my house on the line, so it’s worth a crack.

1 October 2015

Online ordering went live this morning.

Only a very small range of products at this stage, but I’ll keep adding more each day and hopefully sale number 0000001 isn’t too far away…

6 October 2015

Here’s some product ready to be shipped out.

I think I’ll go with larger stickers for the next batch. The rear has plain labels with the name of the nuts, nutritional info, etc.

First orders have been posted today. Thanks to the two members who have given it a go. :)

So far all of the orders are from people I have some connection to (friends, family, forum) so I’m still looking forward to the first non-connected order to come through. It’s only been five days, so I need to be patient…

7 October 2015

I was in Coles today and did a price check. Salted roast cashews were $26.90 kg vs $16.95 kg on

Yep the pricing is brilliant. I do need to adjust my margins at some point, but right now they’re set low to try and get some volume through. It’s nice to know there is plenty of room to move.

And despite the price difference, the nuts from my supplier are of a higher grade than what the supermarkets sell. Which basically just means less broken bits in the bag and fewer nuts with any type of discolouration.

8 October 2015

I like the use of resealable bags. That’s a selling point.

The resealable stand-up bags are great. Not the cheapest option, but I feel that if I want to offer a premium service that matches the premium domain, this is what I need to do. And I agree completely on it being a selling point. I hope other prospective buyers see it the same way.

Was dropshipping ever an option here so that you didn’t need certs and what not?

Never an option. Following on from my comments above, I wanted to package the product myself so that I could use premium packaging and my own branding.

The cost of getting the food licence, food supervisor certificate and appropriate insurance was not huge. It took time, but thankfully my main business runs pretty smoothly with great staff, which allows me to spend some time on other projects like this.

13 October 2015

Had the first ‘big’ order come in over the weekend. Over $100 worth of nuts, none of them what you’d consider snacking nuts, so presumably part of their diet.

This is the type of customer I had in mind; someone who has nuts as a big part of their diet and is going to place decent orders on an ongoing basis.

As an added bonus they live about 10 minutes from my office, so it’s a nice easy free delivery.

I have to say I was expecting a few more orders at this stage, but it’s only been a week since ordering went live, so I need to be patient… I’m sure most online stores that get started from scratch never get a single order.

I started setting up the ebay store this week. Just a couple of products so far. I might use it to play around with pricing a little.

14 October 2015

First eBay order came through this morning. Could be a good way of getting more people aware of the brand, and presumably next time they’ll order direct through the site.

19 October 2015

Sticking with a single supplier at the moment (who are huge and have everything I need) but if everything goes to plan I’ll be keeping an eye out for more suppliers who can provide me with something a little different. Not for a while though…

The orders have been coming in over the last two weeks. Not a huge number, but enough to show that the model has potential. The typical order seems to be around $50 to $100.

The site is still more-or-less off the shelf and could do with a LOT of improving! It will come with time…

21 October 2015

Another two $100+ orders in last night. Definitely starting to get some momentum, and it’s giving me a little more confidence to hold more stock rather than ordering in each time, which means I can ship to customers much faster.

It’s been an interesting process so far since my other online businesses have been service based (insurance and classifieds) rather than stocking and shipping an actual product.

26 October 2015

So we’re a couple of weeks in now and I have to say things are going better than expected.

Last week’s orders totalled $852 via the website plus another $52 via eBay. Over $600 of that just came in over the weekend alone…

I’m 100% certain that the site wouldn’t be having this level of success without the domain name.

The next steps are to keep working on the margins (starting to look better already) and find some better shipping options, as the free shipping on orders over $100 is killing most of my margin.

I’ve done nothing with Adwords yet, but I’m keen to get to know more about the Google merchant thingy so that I can have some products showing on Google.

Here’s a photo of two orders that went out earlier in the week… I’m quite happy with the packaging and branding, but I think I’ll get some larger stickers printed for the big bags.

6 November 2015

Just over a month now since ordering went live.

We’ve done over $2k in orders, with the vast majority of that in the last two weeks. Not huge numbers, but it’s still very early and the site still has a lot of little bugs to sort out.

I’ve been getting quite a few wholesale enquiries via the contact form. The site makes no mention of wholesale, but perhaps the domain name makes us look a lot bigger than we are…?

Starting to get on to of margin setting now, so the orders are actually profitable. Free shipping is still hurting. I bumped the threshold up to $150 from $100, which seems to have simply increased the average order amount! The orders are still profitable at that level, but there’s not a lot in it after I cover shipping…

Still learning. Good fun…

26 November 2015

Little update…

The site is still kicking along nicely. We’re getting close to $1,000 a week in orders, but it’s not resulting in much profit.

When I started I said I wasn’t worried about profit for the first year and just wanted to build the business… It’s amazing how quickly things change! Now my attitude is that if I’m going to spend time away from my main business and my family, I want to get paid for it!

Yesterday we had our first repeat order, which was quite a good feeling. I also sent out a feedback survey for last month’s orders, and the results have been very positive. Thanks to the members who got involved too. I will reply to your feedback soon. :)

My thinking at the moment is that new customers alone are going to struggle to get this to a sustainable business, but as repeat customers build up over the months and years we could start to build some really good volume.

16 December 2015

Little update…

Haven’t really done much new over the last month, but the orders are still coming in. Not quite the Christmas bump I was hoping for, but I really didn’t do enough (or anything!) in terms of Christmas promotions.

Total sales are now comfortably above what I’ve spent on the domain, development and other costs such as the food licence and insurance. Profit is a different story of course, but getting the sales past that figure within the first three months is a start.

10 February 2016

It’s been a few months since the last update…

All I’ve really been doing lately is adding products and posting a few bits and pieces on our Facebook page. I’ve added some content, but very little compared to what I do with my insurance sites.

I’ve done two price increases across most of the products since my last update, which hasn’t impacted on sales thankfully. I’m starting to get a more sustainable margin into the products, although profits (especially on the orders which receive free shipping) are still a little low for my liking.

Overall sales are kicking along quite nicely and I’m doing a few grand a month. Although it’s off a tiny base, month-on-month sales growth has been in the double digits every month.

Not too bad considering not a single cent has been spent on marketing. I’ll probably start playing around with Adwords within the next couple of months though.

I have been considering shopping the site around to some of the existing players, but I think I’ll hang on for a bit longer and keep growing it.

18 March 2016

My little nut business is still kicking along. We’re approaching six months since launch. Where does the time go…

The orders have really picked up in terms of size this month.

I got excited about a $390 order that came in at the start of the month (our largest so far) but that was quickly beaten by a $455 order earlier this week and today I’ve just received one for a whopping $730 from a repeat customer!

As you’d expect for orders of this size, these are all business customers. Most of the overall orders are still private individuals, but the average sale for them is around $150, which is the free shipping threshold.

What’s really relevant in terms of this forum is that I put a huge amount of this success down to the domain name. These are fairly sizeable orders that people are putting in, and I believe it’s the domain that gives them the confidence to do so.

I’ve managed to pick up a great new deal on shipping, so I’ll be able to reduce the shipping fees on my <$150 orders and save some money on my >$150 orders.

If I was to work out my hourly rate on this business it would still be crap, but I’m confident that I’m building something that should be quite sellable at some point.

17 May 2016

It’s been two months since the last update and things are still going pretty well.

Growth has slowed down a little since the last update, but we’re still heading in the right direction.

I’m ranking very well for a lot of shopping related terms (number 1 for ‘buy nuts online’ and similar) however I’m nowhere when searching for product terms such as ‘raw cashews’ etc.

On this basis I decided to give the Google shopping ads a try. They’ve only been running since late last week and haven’t resulted in any sales, but it’s cool to see my products there on top of the search results.

The short domain name works really well within the shopping results as you can see below. It fits within the box nicely, and shows what the business does and that it’s Australian. Perfect!

There is still a huge amount of room for growth when it comes to rankings. I really need to be adding more product related content, and this may be something I (reluctantly) outsource.

The repeat orders are still going well and I have a few customers who have now reached their third big order, so I’m definitely happy with that.

Those repeat customers tend to order around $170 worth of product every two months. If they maintain that it’s equal to just over a grand per year. If I get around 1,000 of this type of customer (which I don’t think is impossible) that’s $1m a year turnover done and dusted.

Plenty of work to do and plenty of potential left.

I’m interested to hear your view on the end potential sell figure.

I have absolutely no idea to be honest!

I want to build it to the point where I have a small warehouse and maybe a couple of people working in the business. I actually wouldn’t mind a small retail store that could potentially double as the warehouse and packaging facility.

If I want to get a big life changing sale price then the business needs to get into wholesale. I don’t think as a retail-only business it will ever be huge.

But I’m not really thinking about all that at the moment. Right now it’s just a side business that I’m enjoying and learning from.

1 June 2016

I’ve been spending a lot more time on the business since my last update a few weeks ago.

I now have Klaviyo running on the site, which manages cart abandonment and a bunch of other cool little things, mainly around automated emails.

It’s free for up to 250 customers, which I’m below at the moment, but will hit soon. Cost after that is $25/mth which at this stage I think will be money well spent.

I’m also really happy to be able to accept credit card payments via the site now without relying on PayPal as a payment gateway.

I’m using NAB Transact which was remarkably easy to get up and running thanks to the plugin and great email support direct from NAB. The payment process for customers is super seamless, and works in a way so the credit card details never pass through my server, which avoids some additional security requirements. It’s brilliant.

Personally I think offering proper credit card payments looks so much more professional than PayPal, and the merchant fees NAB are charging are way lower than the PayPal fees.

And last but not least, sales are still growing at an ever-increasing rate. I don’t want to give specific numbers, but its in the mid-to-high $x,xxx range per month. My target now is to be hitting $xx,xxx per month consistently by the end of the year.

Fun stuff!

12 September 2016

It’s been a couple of months since the last update, but not much has changed. The orders are still growing from month to month without me doing anything to the site.

In a couple of weeks it will be 12 months, and at that point it’s time for me to bail out!

I’ve loved building up this business, but my main business is far more needing of my time at the moment.

So if any of you would like the challenge of taking over please get in touch! I’m not after a huge pile of money; just enough to make it worthwhile. PM me if you’re interested.

Shortly after the post above the site was sold, and shortly after that it was sold again!

No products have been sold since I sold the site, but supposedly it is coming back.  Here’s the site today…

It was a great journey and hopefully there is much more to the story in the future.
