To start off with something interesting is most important.
I have been incredibly busy ordering all of the parts and pieces needed for my new KIMBOS inventory. My 24-year-old daughter has been with me through this process so that she can see and learn what it takes to have a business of her own one day soon. As she is looking over my orders, I hear a large gasp...she says, mom! And of course, I say WHAT! Why are you ordering from Fascinations she asks and what in the world do you need that much velcro for?!! Was I not supposed to see this? she says waiting on my response, with her brain swirling...I took a look at what she was referring to and laughed, I let her know, it wasn't Fascinations it was FASTONATION! KIMBOS need Velcro! We all had a good chuckle and I let her know my order did come with a brass pole for my room though. LOL
Besides the new beautiful color selections, we have tweaked a couple of details and created KIMBOS leggings, as well as KIMBOS climbing pants. I must say, the climbing pants are absolutely revolutionary. If you have ever had a swiss-seat on, you know what an exhausting process it is for a potty break while climbing indoor rock walls or on the side of a mountain, outdoors. This problem is now solved for all of you rock-jocks out there! There is also a new wrap-skirt for the Kimbos shorts, it's simple and super cute! I compiled the votes from my FACEBOOK followers that chose the most liked fabric designs and those designs will be offered for the wrap-skirt.
This has been a very interesting evolution for KIMBOS. I have been coasting along, knowing that I have an excellent, helpful product for the masses, but the masses were afraid to evolve. I pride myself on being a fearless, "cold caller" and hit up all of the outdoor gear and hiking businesses surrounding the Grand Canyon. I wanted to see if there was any interest in Kimbos and I got reeeeeejected over and over again. Most of the comments I received were towards the attitude that; if people couldn't be comfortable being half-naked to pee, (in front of other strangers hiking with them) they shouldn't be out here! I let them all know, we can do better. Give people confidence, take away the awkwardness, keep them safe!
Not one business has picked up an order of KIMBOS. (I'm taking any ideas on this conundrum, please)
With the new website, that looks fresh and updated, KIMBOS also has an appearance on, "The Gadget Show" which is a very popular UK, YouTube program and that is very exciting for us. Season 31 episode 12. It's a small dialogue and appearance for the KIMBOS, but nonetheless, I have had great interest from across the pond and am now almost completely sold out until my new inventory arrives. We should also be making an appearance in "The Review Smiths" Christmas catalog coming out in November, this publication is also a European based, but online, it is available to everyone.
I must say, I have loved the comments and questions that you all have left me and I am appreciative of any pictures you may share of your KIMBOS adventures.
Here's a big one. You are now free to pull over on highways in NEW MEXICO to take a potty break, with a pair of KIMBOS on. Without KIMBOS, you would be breaking an indecent exposure law and be hit with a ticket and a fine to be paid. Let's add that you should be wearing KIMBOS on any long road trip! You can't un-see things that I have seen!
Thank you for your time and your interest, stay safe out there and keep wearing those KIMBOS. I can't even tell you about my last adventure of using a public bathroom without my KIMBOS. Another lesson learned.
