如果您在第5集中错过了我们的2020年BNB公告,你可以在这里听它。作为一个快速的回顾,我们每个人都在佛罗里达州奥兰多郊区购买了一个家庭,以创造家庭友好的假期住宅。艾玛的主题是哈利波特主题,矿山(elsie)是迪士尼主题的。

艾玛家:这是链接艾玛的第一个哈利波特主题的房子更新。这里有一些照片 -

在这一集中,艾玛在佛罗里达州提供了17天的完整回顾,在那里她完全建立了她的新BNB。在接下来的几个月里,艾玛有几个博客帖子,她将分享她新的BNB的每个房间的照片。

埃尔西的房子:在这一集中,我谈到了我是如何购买家具的。这是我们购买它之前的照片(你可以在下面的新照片中看到相同的房间,我们的快速刷新)。我们将在四月份进行更多的装修。

以下是我们最近的旅途中的一些照片。

在这一集中,我们还谈到了我们过去的零售冒险。以下是我们砖和砂浆商店(RIP)的一些照片。

我们都觉得我们的砖和砂浆零售建议是一个Tad Harsh,但它是超级诚实的,我们真正站着的建议。我希望它不是太伤心了!99%的企业心碎已经零售相关,所以如果没有别的,这是一个清醒的警告。我们完全明白为什么它是一个开放精品的梦想 - 我们每次走进一个时都会得到温暖的模糊!无论如何,我现在将停止免责声明,如果你有一个零售冒险,我们很想在评论中听到它!

9集记录

艾玛:您正在收听的是《美丽的混乱》播客,这周的节目中,我们将CSGO雷电竞分享佛罗里达住宅项目的最新进展,这是我们在第五集中第一次谈到的。我们还回答了读者关于我们过去在实体零售行业的职业生涯的问题。请记住,你可以在www.jimshorror.com/podcast上找到所有的节目注释,还有很多额外的链接、照片和其他信息。

埃莉莉:我们刚从佛罗里达州和艾玛回来了。你有18天吗?

艾玛:十七天,根据企业租盘-A-Car。那是我意识到它的时候。当我到达砖时,无论你有什么车吗?他们就像,所以,查普曼小姐,你将拥有这辆车17天。在我的脑海里,我就像,哦,我的天哪,我要去......就像我意识到一样,是的。

Elsie:所以艾玛在那里有两周多。我在漫长的周末就在那里。因此,如果您在第5集中错过了我们的公告,让我们快速回顾我们在佛罗里达州和我们在那里做什么。

艾玛:它的主旨。如果你开车,你不能回去,你就像,请告诉我发生了什么。是埃莉莉,我都在佛罗里达州奥兰多境外买了一所房子。它在一个叫做达维波特的地区。我们每个人都有一个房子。它在同一个社区。这是三分钟的步行路程。我们都将把它们转向租赁短期。Elsie已经提供,她有点与之合作。和我的完全是空的。 And we did some kind of minor ish, I put it in the middle, renovations and we’re getting ready to list them. So last time we had just bought them, I had seen my house Elsie hadn’t even seen hers. And now the houses are kind of at a place where they’re getting ready to be listed. When we bought the house, we hadn’t even seen it in person. We had seen photos online and you’re the same way. So…

埃尔西:太疯狂了。我从没想过我会这么做。好像我从没想过要买房子一样。我没有见过。但在这种情况下,没什么大不了的。

埃玛:嗯,我们在网上看过所有的照片。我们进行了检查。所以,是的,置身于一个空间里与在网上看到它的照片是非常不同的。但同时,我们也不打算住在这个房子里。我们打算租出去。所以这是一件不同的事情。而且,我确实意识到有时候人们不得不买一栋他们看不到的房子。你知道,我有一些朋友,或者他们的搭档在军队里,有时会发生这样的事情。所以,你知道,这不是疯狂的不寻常。只是对我们来说有点不一样。 So wanted to point that out. But Trey and I did see the house one time before I went and lived there for two weeks. And we’d gone, it was completely empty. It was right after we bought it. And I got a lot of measurements. I was trying to figure out what size rugs and furniture things could be. So I don’t want to buy a couch that’s too big for the space. Things like that. Still, the timeline was after that initial visit. We then had our contractor, which his name’s Steve Dennis, and he’s great. So if you’re in the Davenport area and you need someone, send us an e-mail. Yeah. Some guy named Steve. Just kidding. That’s a that’s a callback to the some guy name Collin thing. But anyway, Steve’s awesome. If you need someone, email us. I’ll give you his number. He’s rad. But anyway, so we had contractor work done before I arrived. So what he did and his team, he has a few people he works with was take out and put in new floors throughout the first floor and paint basically all the walls. And we did the kitchen backsplash tile and a couple other things. And most of that, like 90 percent of that was done by the time I arrived. So he’d been doing that all of October. I arrived November 8th and I was there November 8 through 25th. And it was pretty much done. He had a couple minor things. He was still finishing up. But yeah, when I was there, my goal was to decorate, furnish light fixtures, paint a few more things, really just set it up in a way where it was ready for people to use it and live in the space.

埃尔希:我只是想说想跳,说,如果你从来没有做一个空气BNB,你会震惊的是多么不同的设置一个房子当你没有任何进入它从你以前的房子像我们大多数人当我们移动。我们从以前的房子里拿了一些东西。我们的车库里装满了多余的东西,我们不知道这些东西要花六个月的时间去哪里。但是如果你什么都不带,你还要买披萨切割机和咖啡机,每一样东西都要花钱,而且还要花时间安装。我们装修纳什维尔的房子时,花了我几个月的时间。我想我一开始想,哦,我可以做得很快。但是去target的路程太长了,就像我们去target,把一辆车推到车上,再回到车里,再推一辆车再推到车上。这才是真正的感觉。当你在建造这样的房子时,就像试着从头开始建造一样。

艾玛:这些是我对它的两个相反的感受,而且在我在那里时,他们都存在于我内部。但他们是对立面的。所以它有点奇怪。但我觉得这两个都是我正在做的奇怪而令人兴奋的事情。我正在制作一个哈利波特屋。我在两周内完成它。它觉得我在电视节目中,但没有人正在拍摄它。所以我就像,真的很酷。但是那是另一方面是它感到非常无聊,但像单调一样,就像它一样觉得,你知道,电影土拨鼠一天,就是比尔·默里,你见过吗?它觉得每天我会醒来的地方,我会做基本上同样的事情,设置家具,画东西,吃同样的东西。 Like, I ate the exact same meals all the time because there is no point in like cooking. No one was there. And it’s kind of an empty house. When I got there, I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor and I didn’t even really have like a side table or a lamp or all my silverware yet or this or that. And as the two weeks went on, by the end, it was like I had a bed frame and a lamp and silverware and pizza cutter, you know, and it just felt like a home and it just went from zero to ten in a way. And it was just funny and strange and it felt like a TV show, but it also felt like the most boring TV show ever if you had to watch it because it was just me sitting up furniture. Yeah, I listened to a ton of podcasts though. While I was setting up the furniture my my top two: How I Built This, which is like if you’ve never heard it, it’s from NPR. It’s people’s stories about how they build their businesses and it’s really rad. I listen to a ton of those and then I also listen to a good amount of My Favorite Murder which is a yeah, comedy true crime podcast. But my rule with myself was no true crime after 1 p.m. because I was living in the house by myself and I would freak myself out. So I was kind of like that was what was keeping me company as I tried to set up and I had texted you one time Elsie. I was like, I got a TV show idea: So You Think You Can Set Up Furniture? And here’s what the contestants do. They set up furniture and they could be different like challenges, like set it up as fast as you can set up by yourself when you really need a second person.

埃莉莉:尽量不要诅咒尽量不要扔东西。

艾玛:正好。那就是我失去的时候。他们会像哦,你大喊大叫。你失去了这一轮。哦,你被诅咒了。她输了。所以,是的,这是真的很有趣。这是一个奇怪的经历,但真的很有趣。而我绝对会回顾并像“那样的东西一样”。在我的第二周结束时,我认为五天,直接来到了。 And Keely, if you all don’t know, she edits this podcast. So she’s listening right now. And she cuts out all the garbage that we say or just like the awkwardness. But Keely came and she helped me set up some bunkbeds and some other things. And so I was really grateful to have someone there and just be a little less lonely. That was nice. And then at the very end of the two weeks around the time Elsie arrived, which she is gonna give you her update, too. But our photographer that we work with from Nashville, Amber, she arrived and you’ve probably seen her if you follow us on Instagram. She’s really beautiful. She has red hair, very talented photographer. So she came. So I kind of had a very like clear deadline on when these rooms had to be finished because I had had to photograph them and then leave town again. So that was. You know, a lot of pressure. But after a while, I felt like I knew I was going to make it. And then I. I was like, OK. Everything’s OK. But before that, I was just very like scrambling, going crazy, staying up till nine or 10, waking up at 6:00 a.m., like just trying to get everything done. And yeah, like driving to Target, driving to Wal-Mart driving to Home Depot. Over and over and over again. And I bought a lot of stuff online, too. So, you know.

埃尔西:好吧,我就说出大家现在的想法。我真为你骄傲。你一个人做了一整栋房子。主要是。这是疯狂的。

埃玛:是的,不过我确实得到了一些帮助。但是,是的,我也经常一个人。这是。快结束的时候我很害怕,好像我的背受伤了。我非常小心,如果需要的话,我会打开箱子,把家具拆成碎片搬上楼梯,因为我不想那样伤害自己。我对这种事很认真。我认为每个人都应该这样做。你知道吗,你只有一个后背。你只有一个身体。你应该尽可能地珍惜和照顾它。 But yeah, I could tell I was like, oh, I’m getting, like, really tired. This is a lot of work. It’s too much work for one person.

埃莉莉:但你做到了。

埃玛:很有趣。但关于我的更新,我想说的最后一件事是,我不知道大家是否都在听,但如果是我,我会有点好奇,嘿,这要花多少钱?

埃尔西:实际上他们只关心钱。

艾玛:我也是,我喜欢有数字。是的。所以我把这一切都加了起来,因为我有一个预算和一个剧透:我略微超出了预算,但我认为如果我再做一次,我会做得更好。但我有点希望我不用这么做。但是,如果我有一个更长的时间,因为我认为你可以做一些像节俭的事情,你知道,从Craigslist或Facebook市场的朋友那里买东西。你知道,有很多方法可以省钱。你有更多的时间。但是不管怎样,没关系。所以我把它们加起来。我花了大约18000美元买了所有的家具,所有的户外家具,银器,等等。 Bed linens, everything for this five bedroom house with eighteen thousand dollars and slightly over the budget. I was aiming for.

elsie:这包括像绘画......

艾玛:不,不,我不打算和他一起工作,因为如果有人想和史蒂夫一起工作,我觉得让他给你他的名言很有礼貌。所以我不想隐瞒这件事。我不喜欢这样做,因为我觉得自己像个自由职业者....

elsie:所以这只是包括,房子里的东西。

艾玛:是的。这里只有家具,床单,银器,厨房用品,窗帘,窗帘,什么都有。就是那些东西。毛巾,浴巾,很多毛巾…

埃尔希:有五间卧室,三间浴室吗?

埃玛:不,我想有四个浴室。是的,有四种。

elsie:所以是的。她做得很好。

艾玛:是的。我为这个数目感到骄傲。我不是,但这比我的目标多了一点。所以我有时会表现得有些优等生。我的意思是,我是一个很喜欢做这件事的人。但是是的。所以我就想,天哪,我超出了预算。但还算不错。考虑到时间线和房子的大小,我想一万八千美元是可以理解的。但是,是的,我想花更多的时间节约,从Etsy上买更多的东西。 And I don’t know, just like giving it even more personality. But hopefully when people stay there, they can see how much. I don’t know. Love and magic I tried to put into this Harry Potter inspired house.

Elsie:绝对是在展示笔记上。我们肯定会把房子的亮点放在景点。如果上市即将到来,我们将把它放在那里。如果它没有稍后,那么我们将在它的生活时添加它。

艾玛:好的。告诉我们一些关于你的更新的信息,因为即使我们都在实际上在同一个邻居和他们的主题上做了一个房子,我觉得你的情况仍然比我的局势如此。那么你怎么样?

埃尔希:好的。是的。我们的情况完全不同,因为当我发现我们在做这个房子的时候,正好是我们带着一个孩子从中国回家的时候。我们买房子的时候我休了几个月的产假。我可能还在休产假。我不记得了。我很高兴我们有了一个有家具的房子,这对我来说是真正的救命稻草,因为我认为从时间角度来说,这真的,真的,真的最终会对我有帮助。这是第一阶段和第二阶段。我们这次的旅行是我们的第一阶段。我会告诉你们第一阶段,然后。 Yeah. Phase two is kind of a bigger makeover where the rooms have more themes and we’ll actually photograph like the tour and stuff like that. And that’ll happen next April. A few things about our trip. So we took our kids with us for a long weekend and my mom came and my mom would babysit the kids. About, I would say like maybe three hours a day and we would do in that time, like speed work, go to Target, go to the different stores we need to go to during their nap time. I would like put all the pictures in frames really quickly and things like that. And so we basically just took the house for what it was. It was an air BnB before, it was a very…I’ll put a few pictures you can just see. It was a very regular looking air BnB. Like if you just imagine the most regular family house ever. That’s what it looked like before we went. We had all the rooms painted white and also by Steve.And so when we got there, we spent most of our time hanging pictures, changing out a few pillows, changing out a few bedspreads and hanging all new curtains and rods. So that’s what we did. I spent about $3,500 on that stuff. I also bought some things you would see in the photos, not props like they were useful things, but things that would show up because I was shooting the listing photos. That’ll be up until we reshoot it in April. So I bought like a better looking coffeemaker and cute floaties for the pool and some things like that too. So yeah, we worked really, really quickly. It was super fun. I, it wasn’t too stressful. I was prepared for it to be very stressful and I was nervous me and my husband would be fighting a lot. But really, it was just I don’t know, we just kind of made it happen. And then at the end of the day, we were just drinking rosé and swimming in the pool with our kids. And we didn’t really have time to fight or worry about anything because we just had to just get it done. And then on the last day we had done our photos on Saturday and then the last day on Sunday we took the kids to Magic Kingdom. And my mom came and it was magical.

艾玛:是的。Goldie喜欢它是一个小世界。

埃尔西:太可爱了。

埃玛:我不知道你有没有在网上看过这个视频。但它很可爱。

埃莉莉:是的。我不知道我是否可以链接视频。我会尝试将视频链接到Show Notes中。但是,她基本上尖叫了一段时间,就像环顾四周一样,然后就像有抽搐一样,因为她很开心。它是…

艾玛:她听着音乐就像在摇头。

埃莉莉:她是一个非常音乐的婴儿。这是神奇的。那么好吧。关于Emma的一点点为我写下了她想知道的问题。所以…

艾玛:是的,我就像,这是我认为你应该谈论的,但没有压力。当我们制作概述时,我们彼此这样做。“这是你应该说的。”

埃莉莉:我很感激,因为我可以永远像框架照片一样讨论,每个人都喜欢,好吧,搬家。好的。所以她说,你如何决定什么保守并想要摆脱已经提供的家?

艾玛:是的,因为我没有必要这样做。它是空的。所以我正在挑选任何适合我的主题。但是你有点像这样,这将如何适应我的主题,或者是这样,你知道,因为房子里的一切都是功能性的,因为它以前正在租用?是的,很好,可能几乎所有的一切。有几件事喜欢它,但这就是我想要知道的。所以我觉得我很难摆脱我喜欢的东西。这是完全良好的。但也没有真正的东西,我爱的不是真正的东西,或者它并不符合我正在做的事情。是的,我只是发现这么难。 So I wanted to hear how you did it.

埃尔希:好的。好吧,我会说这个。It was a lot easier than, like if you’re cleaning out your own garage, then, you know, you come across, you know, an item like, and you think about the money you spent on it or the person who gave it to you. This was much easier. It was like I bought a furnished house. I know it’s not all gonna work. So when we got there, the whole garage was filled up with like all of the like fake plants and vases and art that had been on the walls before they painted. Steve offered to donate it and I basically had him take everything. So we kept like two mirrors and put them back on the walls and then everything else went bye bye. And it really was not emotional for me at all. And then there were some things that were kind of obvious, like the manager came by and she said, you really need to get all new towels. So we got all new towels. And there was like some bath mats that were like looking pretty shitty. And we, you know, got those.

艾玛:ew。

埃尔西:对,有几件这样的东西,不过基本上都保存得很好,有几件东西我保存得很好,我觉得我不会买的,但它已经在那里了。就像这样,我不知道,像90年代的样子。非常粗糙的高脚椅,我就留着它吧因为我们可以买到更漂亮的高脚椅,但这有关系吗?你明白我的意思吗?对某些事情来说还算不错。很好,他们已经在那里并且已经在运作。成为九型人格对我来说是有好处的,可以降低我的标准,告诉我自己,不是每件事都必须是特定的。我关注的是这栋房子的整体情况,我关注的是人们会在Instagram上分享他们的家庭照片,比如游泳池,孩子们的神奇卧室。我根本没把注意力放在厨房上。就像让它成为一个看起来不错的厨房。 So, yeah. That’s how we decided what to keep and get rid of. I love the furniture that’s there. There’s like this kind of elaborate set of pineapple dining room chairs. And I’m so excited to paint them when we go back, the furniture that’s there. It’s like not my style, but it’s kind of cool. Like it really works. And I will show before and afters at some point on the blog and you’ll see like the all the furniture in the bedroom that’s going to become the frozen themed bedroom. Totally worked. It was just crazy, you know, that we didn’t pick it out. But it’s there and it works. And we’re really just going to have to do like a snowman mural and some snowflakes and put up some cute art. So that’s actually been great for my situation of being a new mom and not having as much time and energy. Like if I had to do what Emma just did, I don’t think I could right now. So I’m really Greatful.

埃玛:嗯,我在那里待了17天。我离开了我丈夫。我的意思是,我们没有孩子,但那样不是理想的……

埃尔西:我现在不能那样做。你的下一个问题是,你在爱尔兰花了多少钱?我已经说过了。我说我花了3500美元。

艾玛:是的。但我想知道你是否有......如果你还不知道,你不必说出来。但是当你在四月做大改造时,你有预算吗?而且我并不一定意味着你会花多少钱。如果您有任何承包商工作,您将完成,或者其他。你知道,这就是......如果你知道,你可以分享它。但我的意思是,更像家具,就像,嘿,你知道,因为我们要做的一切。

埃尔西:我想说的是,包括承包商的工作,这是我唯一知道的方法。而且也没有很多承包商的工作。科林和我是一起去的,所以他会安装很多可拆卸墙纸这样就不用考虑价格了因为他是我们的员工。总之,我要把它控制在一万美元以下。一万左右。我想我可以这样做,因为我不需要买床垫和床之类的东西。我认为这是一个非常现实的预算。我要去买个新沙发。我要去买新的户外家具,一些新地毯。我们已经把房子里所有的窗帘都弄好了。 And I want to buy a couple pieces of like special artwork…Like custom artwork. Yeah, like a big weaving. And then I have this. I think I’m gonna commission…and I don’t want to spoil it, but I think I’m gonna commission, a big art piece for the dining room. So yeah I’ll spend a little bit on those just because I think it’s special, especially when you’re spending a lot of money on Amazon, which I am, to just do a couple of things that are supporting small artists as well. Yes. So one more thing I want to touch on about our experience and our trip was just how it felt to be there as a family. And this is my favorite part. So we went for, I think, five days, which is kind of a lot for Florida. Like I could totally go for three days, go to the parks one day with our kids at the age they are right now, one day is totally enough for us. One park, one day. But anyway, it was incredible. Like, I really loved the experience of staying in the house, even though it’s not fully, fully decorated yet. I was kind of imagining it in my mind the whole time and then being able to like tell Nova that we were gonna come back. Which was really special for her. She really liked it. I told them that maybe we could come for their birthday someday and things like that. And yeah, it felt very special, like we were starting a tradition which I loved. It’s cool that we’ll have a place that we’ve put love and energy into where we can go for a quick weekend. And I mean, I love the Disney parks, but they’re not gonna be at an age for a long time where we want to spend like a lot of days or make it like a major family trip. We just kind of want to like pop in and pop out. It feels really good that we can do that anyway. We got a Mickey Mouse waffle maker, so we did make breakfast at home every day. And it is so special and magical that that like a meal is something that will repeat at that house. I love that. And anyway, the last thing I wanted to mention is just that we did swim in the pool at least one or two times every single day. We usually did a morning swim and a night swim. And our kids really, really love swimming in the pool right now. It has like a heated pool option, which we were using because it is was kind of chilly. It was perfect for a little family trip. And I’m really excited to go back after we’ve done the full makeover and sort of surprise the girls and like wow them with all the rooms.

艾玛:我也有一些东西要放进去,和家里的东西一起。我是在那里才意识到这一点的。我一直在附近,你知道,当我在那里的时候,我意识到当我开车离开附近的街区去沃尔玛或我要去的任何地方的时候,我们家所在的社区就像小操场一样。所以有两次,我和诺娃,戈尔迪和妈妈一起去了一次。还有一次只有我和诺瓦。我们从家里走到一个操场,那真的很有趣和简单。它让我们可以走出家门,进行活动,荡秋千,滑滑梯。我甚至都没意识到它们的存在。我就想,哦,这太棒了。这个社区就像所有的人行道。 Super easy to walk. You can go to these little playground, super cute. So that was the family thing I wanted to mention. The other thing I wanted to note was I’ve only really posted one Instagram on my personal account about the Harry Potter inspired house. But when I did, I was surprised how many people were commenting about doing a bachelorette party there. Which I had not really had not occurred to me. I would totally have had a Harry Potter bachelorette party. I love Harry Potter. But so but anyway, I was just like, honestly, it would be a great house for a bachelorette party because has five bedrooms, it has a pool, has a hot tub. It’s got lots of like eating options around. And then if you’re the kind of group that wants to go to the parks, you know, then. Yeah.

elsie:好的。所以我们现在将过渡到读者问题。是的。本周的读者问题来自凯蒂。她说,我20岁。所以努力弄清楚我的生活中的某种计划,我最近在接下来的五到10年里开设了砖和砂浆商店的想法。我认识到这种企业会多么困难和昂贵。但在这么多行业都消失了数字的时候,我渴望砖和砂浆的变形。我记得当你拥有红色天鹅绒和艾玛里面有她的小甜蜜商店。我喜欢结合食物和零售的想法。我最担心的是,我不知道在这种类型的业务中漂浮在这种情况下是多么困难,而且如果我试试,我会失败并在这个过程中失去很多钱。 OK. This is like such a juicy question.

艾玛:我知道......

埃莉莉:因为我们不谈论我们的砖和砂浆。这不是我最喜欢谈论的主题,但我们现在正在这样做。

艾玛:你为什么不告诉?如果有人不知道我们曾经拥有砖头和砂浆。你为什么不告诉他们一些关于它的事情?好的。

埃尔西:在我们写博客的早期,我们有两家实体店。第一个非常小。然后在某个时候,我们升级到了一个漂亮的大空间,在我们家乡密苏里州斯普林菲尔德的一条历史街道上。我们从一位准备退休的女士那里买了一家古着店,那是一家古着店。我们把它设计得非常古怪,在当时很时髦。艾玛还在那里开了一家小商店卖小蛋糕和珍珠奶茶。所以这是我们生命中一个神奇的时刻。这是我最重要的事情之一,就像如果我想在我的脑海里走一条兔子小道,我会想重新装饰那些窗户。它有巨大的,惊人的窗户。我们有很多人体模型和圣诞树之类的东西。 It was a really, really magical, like movie worthy…Lifetime movie worthy store.

艾玛:是的。你在顶楼结婚了。

埃尔西:是的,我结婚了。在一个危险的…我们不得不为我们的婚礼建一个楼梯扶手。

艾玛:我们有一对夫妇在那家商店订婚。他们喜欢购物,然后去甜蜜的商店,然后他们从事那里订婚,他提前通过电子邮件向我们发送电子邮件,就像刚才完成了这整个特殊的事情就是......

Elsie:艾玛让他们成为一个特殊的蛋糕。

艾玛:......在线网上不能这样做...网站。忘了它。我不能说话。

埃尔西:凯蒂的问题是,拥有实体店是否比网上商店更特别、更怀旧?绝对的。是的。百分之一亿。每隔一两年,我脑海里就会有一个想法,我想再开一家店。这就像是最伟大的事业。但我要说的是,实际上每天做这些并不是我最喜欢的工作。

艾玛:是的。这几乎是我写下来的就像我有两件事。所以,我认为有点帽子你收入多少你可以期待那种商店,因为这将是一定的开销。你只是能够达到这么多人。我的意思是,你可以拥有一个在线组件,但是......

埃尔西:你每个月都得付账单,付房租,付水电费。

艾玛:是的。我认为有食物成分是个好主意,因为今天我要和朋友一起去吃午饭。我不能在亚马逊上这样做。对吧?我得去城里的餐馆吃饭。所以我认为,食物、饮料、体验等这些东西是网上无法复制的。但与此同时,我认为像零售一样,网上有很多好的零售。所以很难以这种方式竞争。不管怎样,我觉得我应该小心。但是第二件事是我不喜欢被困在我的…哦,顺便说一下,我的秋叶被摘掉了,所以如果你听说了,我真的很抱歉。 It’s hard to find time when Elsie and I can record and like no contractors are in her house. No noises are happening. It’s just a very difficult to process. My husband like cook our dogs to his office today so that it would be a little more quiet because they go crazy when someone’s here doing lawn stuff. Anyway, we’re sorry, we’re trying to be professional, but yeah, it’s not working out perfectly ok. Anyway, so the second thing I didn’t love about retail was I didn’t love being stuck to the store hours. So we had set store hours. I feel like it was 11:00 till 7:00. I want to say, but I forget it’s been years now. But if I wasn’t in the store or you weren’t in the store, somebody had to be in the store or we had to put a sign up that said, sorry, we’re closed today. So if you were trying to come buy something, we have to disappoint you. And I I just didn’t love the inflexibility of that. I really like. I mean, I still work like very regular hours, but I just feel like I have so much more like I can go to a dentist appointment or a doctor’s appointment or a hair appointment. And I don’t really have to schedule someone to be in my, like, literal physical space while I go do that. And I just really like that flexibility. So I didn’t love the store hours component of it. But that’s just me. I don’t think everyone would feel that way. Some people thrive on even more routine than I do. So that’s just a personal preference. But here’s my advice. And if you have other advice Elsie you should give it too. But here’s mine is you know, Katie, if you’re listening, what I would do if I were you is I would go work in a brick and mortar store. And I don’t just mean a part time.

elsie:像最可爱的那样。是的。是的。

埃玛:你真正感兴趣的。

Elsie:一个感觉有点像你想做的事情,看看你是否喜欢那里的生活。

艾玛:是的。好吧。这是我的建议。没关系。只是开玩笑。(笑)但是,就像Elsie说的,我确实认为。找一个你真正感兴趣的工作。如果你对大型连锁零售充满热情,那就去塔吉特百货(Target)工作吧。如果你喜欢更精品店但仍然是全国性的。去Anthropologie工作吧。 If you find something in your town that you’re super passionate about, work at a local boutique. It doesn’t really matter. Find something that you’re passionate about. But don’t just do the entry level part time position. You might have to start there, but work there long enough that you can really become an important part of the team at this at this retail store. And then also, don’t just clock in and clock out. Don’t just show up and do your shift and then leave, really get involved. Really understand, you know, how many customers they have, what ordering is like. What’s it like being the owner of that store? If you have access to them or the manager or whatever, the highest level that you have access to depending on what it is and just really, truly get involved and understand as much as you can possibly understand about that position, which I think would take at least a couple years for almost any job. And if after that you’re like, oh yeah, I’m still super passionate about brick and mortar retail. Maybe with a food component, whatever. Then I would think, OK, now you at least know you really like the lifestyle, you really like the hours, you like everything about about it. And you now have this super valuable experience that you got while making money instead of going into debt learning it all. Then I would consider doing it. But, you know, if you’re not and if you’re not willing, this is gonna be a touch harsh. I always hate to do that, but, I’m gonna do it. If you’re not willing to do that work at least two years at a brick and mortar that you’re passionate about. I really don’t think that you have what it takes to own a business because it is a lot of risk, sweat and stress. I love it. I love my job and I wouldn’t change it for the world. But I do think like taking the time to truly evaluate a situation and if it’s for you, is really, really important. Otherwise, you could spend a lot of money, potentially go into debt or just end up with a business that makes money, but you don’t love it at all. In which case, maybe it would have been better if you had just worked somewhere, and then you could have had more set vacation hours or benefits that you don’t have to worry about or you know. So anyway, that would be my advice.

elsie:好的,我有一点添加。好吧。这是一个非常好的建议。这是苛刻的,但老实说,就像他们问这个问题一样。这就是为什么它不是我最喜欢谈论的主题,因为我不能说整个事实都说整个事实。正确的。

艾玛:除了真相之外。所以帮助我们...(笑)

埃莉莉:我想说它也是如何说出来,就像我的女儿想做这种商业风险或者像我最好的朋友一样。是的,我会尽力谈论它们。这就是为什么:如果你做得好,你会在你的第一夫一年内快速地击中什么样的钱。这只是一个人。对我来说,有很多行业就是这样。但我会尽力推动我在不同方向上的人,在那里有更多的发展方向,因为我认为当你有更多的潜力来增长时,生活更令人兴奋。但是,我会说零售是什么,如果你全心全意地爱零售。试着像跳蚤市场一样,就像你所在城市的最漂亮的跳蚤市场或这样的东西。比如尝试这样的东西。尝试弹出。 Try any kind of idea like a craft fair, any kind of idea where you don’t have to sit in that shop every single day, even if no one comes in, because that’s the part of it that you’re going to hate. And I’ll just I’ll just leave it at that. Yeah, I think that it’s just so it can be a very heartbreaking business venture. And I know why so many people dream of doing it, because we did, too. I still do. I still like fantasize about those store windows. I promise you. But it was a heart…it was probably the most heartbreaking business venture of my life, too. So. Ahh. And with that.

艾玛:所以如果你想给我们写一封电子邮件,可能会得到一些真正令人心碎的建议。电子邮件地址很简单,是podcast@www.jimshorror.com。谢谢你,凯蒂,你的问题。我希望这不是太。我的意思是,我希望它是鼓舞人心的即使它可能是令人沮丧的,因为这并不意味着你的生活中没有什么伟大的事情。你做的事情。你绝对做的。但我认为在你投入大量资金之前,对一些事情进行真正的评估是一个好主意。

艾玛:我同意。必须有一种方法可以接受你对这个想法的热爱,并使它能够随着时间的推移而越来越多的事情。你知道,可以让你挑战。

艾玛:是的。我觉得如果你能找到解决的办法,那你就很好。你知道,它可以是你零售的一个在线部分。你可能真的更喜欢食物方面的东西。所以你会有一个酒吧或餐厅,然后你会变成一个更大的特许经营或连锁或其他。我认为,你知道,很明显,很多这样的东西可以赚钱。我只是觉得这是一场艰苦的战斗,并不意味着值得战斗。也许是吧,但我认为最重要的是首先要确定那是你真正想要的生活。

艾玛:谢谢你的倾听。感谢您在电子邮件中写作。非常感谢您分享此播客。我们看到您在Instagram和其他方式在线分享它,它意味着很多。如果你现在有几分钟,你可以离开我们的评论,我们真的很欣赏它。我们提前感谢您。

  • 啊!爱上迪士尼的黑胶唱片封面!我们的游戏室/钢琴室里装了几张儿童唱片。我希望我们有更多!

  • 嘿!这看起来很有趣!我都不知道你们现在也在佛罗里达办派对了!我想知道,有没有什么方法可以在spotify等应用程序上听你的播客,或者只有在这里?抱歉我在某个地方错过了!
    xo 4月

  • 我已经阅读这个博客很多年了,但是播客已经改变了游戏规则。我觉得对博客和你们更有吸引力了。我甚至还把一些剧集听了两遍,因为我喜欢这个主题,想要记笔记!做得好,女士!

  • 艾玛,我很好奇你分享的东西里有没有床垫!我还想知道你通常在Airbnb上用什么。我们在Airbnb上从来没有收到过关于我们的床垫的反馈,但是我想知道你们在考虑更新我们的床垫时做了什么。

    • 其中确实包括床垫。但说实话,我基本上买了一堆不同的品牌,部分是基于哪些能及时到达,因为我有一个最后期限来完成我的照片。有些很好,还有一些我不满意,我们可能会在一年左右的时间里更换它们,因为我们有资金。当然,如果我们收到客人的留言,时间可能会提前。

      我现在正在寻找的一件事(从这个中学到)是不是100%泡沫的床垫。我通常不爱他们,他们感到愉快,而且我也注意到它们上的睡眠睡眠(床垫封面)。

      在我们的私人家里,我们最近买了一张敏捷床。他们将成为明年播客的赞助商。所以,我想公开一下,但这是我的真实想法:我爱我们的新床垫。如果符合你的预算,我强烈推荐。我不确定这是活跃的,但如果你感兴趣,我们有一个200美元的折扣代码:ABM

      但如果不符合预算,我只会寻找一些在您的价格范围和床垫尺寸不是100%泡沫。好运!

  • 我很迷恋你的播客!我觉得我们(别的,艾玛和我)只是三个朋友闲逛讨论有趣的东西,当我听!事实上,我唯一不喜欢这个播客的是每天都没有一个人听!哈哈!Elsie和Emma提醒我这么多姐姐和我,它只是让我很高兴听到你们笑着玩得开心!我从来没有在我的生命中听过播客,现在,现在我痴迷了!

  • 我的感觉和大多数人的感觉一样。非常喜欢你们的播客。它很快成为我在大型图书馆中最喜欢的书。它是休闲、主题、有趣、严肃等的完美融合。我也觉得我现在了解你们了。我几乎从一开始就在阅读这个博客,在这么短的时间里,我有了这样一个更好的连接。我也很感激你们的诚实。零售就是一个很好的例子。很多人对一切都漠不关心,人们需要听到真相和真实的经历。我非常欣赏你的诚实和真诚。 Love love love love love it. Also- both houses are incredibly cute and I’m SHOCKED once again about the power of white paint in Elsie’s bnb. Do you mind sharing what color it is? The most perfect warm but white, white! <3

    • 哇。谢谢!杰西卡你的评论真的让我今天成为我的一天。我很紧张这一集太漫游 - y或者我们对听众问题的答案太长了......无论如何,真的很感谢你花时间留下这个评论。

  • 你们所有的播客都更好地制作了周一!我也喜欢听他们。我同意上述评论 - 感觉就像一些闲聊和谈话的女朋友一样,而不是其他播客,我觉得我正在谈论。

    我喜欢你们谈论你的旧砖和砂浆商店。
    在过去的几年里,我实际上在我母亲的法律精品店和茶室工作。我绝对同意,做这样的工作食品总是一个好主意——它在我们的工作中工作得很好。前面是一家精品店,后面是一间茶室。另一个好处是佛罗里达州杰克逊维尔已经没有很多茶室了。
    我会添加到yalls建议中,即在开始商店,确保你有一个利基 - 让它独特地吸引人们。

  • 你好女士!我喜欢你的播客,希望每周都能听到。听你们俩聊天和我们分享现实生活真是太酷了。谢谢你这样做。
    艾玛:在这一集里,你说你必须在很紧的期限内完成你的airbnb。你为什么给自己这么紧的期限?
    谢谢女士们!坚持下去!

  • 我喜欢这一集!!我迫不及待地想看到/听到FL bnbs未来的发展。我很想听到更多关于拥有这样的房产的财务方面的信息。我喜欢听这些数字和其中的计划!非常爱你们,到目前为止,我真的真的很喜欢这个播客!!

  • 我喜欢这一集!当我访问一个朋友后,我记得在打开后去你的商店!你们两个非常友好和可爱!我看着这些节目笔记,我在我的朋友玛丽拿走了一个照片!那天哈哈哈。????

  • 大家好,我是凯蒂!非常感谢你回答我的问题。我真的很欣赏你在这个问题上的诚实。It’s super insightful, and don’t worry, my dreams aren’t crushed. It really helps me to have a better lens to view this topic through.

  • 嗨女士们!喜欢你的播客,网站和你所做的一切!自订阅静止以来一直是一个大粉丝!

    我想提一下,我住和工作的地方离达文波特很近,我在这方面有经验,在出租物业和管理公司工作过。如果你遇到紧急情况,需要有人来这里检查东西、接受送货、推荐供应商等等,如果我能做到的话,我很乐意帮忙。我相信这似乎是随机的,但我只是想把提议放在那里。我相信远程完成工作是个挑战!听起来你有一个很棒的承包商,这很重要!

    希望2020年能给你带来更多美好的事情!期待跟随!
    杰西卡
