      Shannon, a couple things:

      1. Good balance with watching trashy reality shows and reading literature during the breaks. Can’t go wrong there.

      2. I didn’t know there are POS on eBay. It goes without saying not to buy one there, but I’m glad you mentioned it.

      3, Any recommendations on someone looking to set up a merchant site online? I have a Wix account and they offer online stores. I’m not sure how reliable they are or what hidden costs might be there.

        Hey Mike! We like Wix a lot. They are probably the best of the bunch. Squarespace is also pretty good. You can see how we compare those two here: https://www.merchantmaverick.com/wix-vs-squarespace/ and here are a few others to check out https://www.merchantmaverick.com/website-builder-software-comparison-chart/

          My husband and I might want to start our own company this next year and I really want to make sure it’s a success. That is a good point that a POS system is a great tracking system and more, so it’s a great investment for small and big companies. We’ll keep this in mind as we do more research and choose our business plan. Thanks again for keeping us on the right track.
