This may rank as the least interesting news you’ll hear all day, but it’s pretty important to me. You’ll notice this symbol across TheWritersGlove.com:
That badge is from PayPal itself, and it’s given to businesses that formally verify their identities. This is important for two reasons.
First, it lets you know I am who I say I am. And who I am is Ben Sobieck, the founding member and president of The Writer’s Glove, LLC. The LLC filed for its certificate of organization in Minnesota. No surprises there, but that’s the point.
Second, it means that when you purchase a set of writing gloves to keep your hands warm while you type, you can do so with confidence. You’ll get what you paid for.
Truth be told, I’ve been verified via PayPal for some time, but I only now realized this badge was available. It may seem like a simple thing, but to me it’s validation that I’m running things they way they ought to be. That’s a big deal for someone chasing a piece of the American Dream.
Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point!
