Canada has been beautiful, challenging, and a one-of-a-kind learning experience. Now to take my skills down south of the border!
I grew up in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. Ever since leaving the United States to pursue a degree in Ontario, I've been wondering when I'll move back south. For a long time I was working and playing in bands, had some long term relationships, and generally wanted to stay in the Great White North.
After a series of major setbacks amidst many small successes, I decided it was time to return home and finish the last year of my degree. Also, with a much denser population, working in the States might be a step in the right direction business-wise!
Even after just a few days, the schedule is starting to fill up, and it's feeling like the right move. With my vehicle, I'll be able to travel far and wide across the states, following wherever the road takes me.
Also, having a US bank account is going to allow me to change how I charge for services, as well as how my merchandise store charges for items. I'll be updating SHS Merch soon, that way US customers can get merch without having to pay an exchange rate fee. If I can find a better method to manufacture merch in Canada, I will open another site just for Canadian customers. I don't want to forget about my Canadian customers, but it's better to make my products viable for one customer base instead of overpriced for both!
As for my Canadian clients, I'm only about five hours away from the border, and willing to travel for work. I'll be in the area every now and then, and will be sure to visit!
While I already miss the beauty of Canada, I couldn't be more excited for the future. Who knows what the coming months hold? It'll be an adventure for sure, and I'll be sharing each step along the way.
As always, thanks for reading!
