Conan O'Brien Became Customer!

Bart Boch @BartBoch

So, I got an order today for Almost Cake.

I always check if everything is alright and perform small due diligence.
I checked the submission, and it was about the celebrity-related product (not specified which celebrity).
I copied the URL from the email address to research who I am dealing with - and it's a company working directly with/for Conan.
I contacted her out of curiosity and asked if she works with Conan on this, or if this is some side project of hers.

She said it's for Conan, and they are testing the waters to release some products.
She was also happy about me reaching out and doing some research, saying they use many tools and services, and most of the time, they don't bother to check who they work with.
Long story short, she gave me fantastic pointers, requested few changes to the reports, and said if all goes good, they will test the whole line of products with me.
She also allowed me to mention on social media that my customer is Conan's company (kind of her!)

Maybe it sounds naive and stupid, but for the very first time, I am dealing indirectly with a celebrity of this caliber (and personality I like), and I am really excited!
