Next week I will be taking a two-day road trip to Southern California to do some massage chair business. I'm quite excited because I will be getting a 4 hour tour of the Human Touch facility in Long Beach. I've been there before a few years back but I've never really had a tour throughout. Human Touch has been kind enough to set up a visit with the CEO, David Wood, a tour of the warehouse, a visit with their VP of Design (with whom I will be able to interview about the new Immersion Seating chairs), a visit to the Engineering Lab, and a discussion with their marketing people. Dang, this is going to be great! I will also be able to videotape my visit and the interview so that I can share what I learn with you, my site visitors, and my YouTube viewers. I am quite excited.
I will also be visiting the warehouse where all the Inada chairs are stored. It is from this location that all orders are shipped to all points USA. I am excited to see how the logistics work and what kind of system they have set up. I will videotaping that visit as well to share with my viewers and readers.
I hope to have lunch with my Southern California delivery guy, Domenic, who takes care of most of my SoCal shipments. I've been doing business with Domenic for years but I have never met him face-to-face. If time permits I will also visit our Panasonic supplier who is also located in Southern California.
It will be a very busy trip, but I am so looking forward to it. While I am there I just might visit some old friends, since I went to Chiropractic College in Whittier, CA so many years ago. I still have a lot of connections in that area.
Well, that's about it. I'm looking forward to going and learning. I'm also very excited about sharing with you what I have learned.
