Eris and I first started talking about working on a business together over a year ago. I called her with an idea after watching the intro episode of The Apprentice in 2004. Now two years later, the idea is finally starting to evolve into a reality. We had our first weekly conference call this morning to determine our action items. One of my tasks was to register the Merritt Studios domain name with Webmasters. Done.
The name Merritt Studios comes from our mom’s maiden names. They are sisters. And, needless to say, we loved playing together as kids. Among our discussions about Duran Duran, Guiding Light and our upcoming Barbie weddings, we also discussed starting a business together. How exciting that it is finally coming to fruition.
