During the past week we worked on our Beatles guitar project. On Monday we went over to NBCC to listen to Alex MacLean talk about the bussiness aspect of his ever growing company known as East Coast Lifestyle (and also West Coast Lifestyle). He spoke about a small school project turned into a bussiness. He started by selling 30 sweaters to his friends and family, and people started noticing the sweaters and wanted them, so he asked his dad for $800 and started selling them out of his front yard in Halifax. Alex also talked about the power of social media with upcoming bussinesses. When we got back from NBCC, I started working on other protypes for the pickguard for the guitar we are painting. (images). From Tuesday until Thursday we continued working on prototypes using Tinkercad, and we 3D printed the signature that hasn't been working properly for us at all. I think we are at the point to try etching down instead of up because it keeps turning out messy and seems to want to break off. Friday we went to the lecture theatre to listen to the Kinsmen club of Canada talk aboput volenteer work.
