Ticket to Ride

What a rush! How frustrating! So exciting! How disappointing! 

Selling your own invention is quite the mix of emotions. You never know what the day will bring...but that's the fun of it...and I'm hooked!

Example: Walking into Walgreens and leaving with contact info to start selling in January 2012 - What a rush!
Sending out emails and waiting and waiting to hear back on some big deals - How frustrating! 
Setting out our SassaB Spinner and within 5 minutes, selling all 30 packs - So exciting!
Being turned down by a big online store that I know would successfully sell SassaB - How disappointing!

When I go on a sales call, I hope I'll walk out with a check but you never know. I've been fortunate enough with SassaB that 70% of the time, it's a "yes!" However, when they "pass," it's a let down. 

See what I'm saying? The highs and lows are a daily occurrence...if you don't mentally prepare for this mix of emotions, it can totally exhaust you!

The bottom line: The roller-coaster ride of being an entrepreneur is a fun one! I'm thrilled to have a ticket! 


  1. It's fun and easy to sell when you have a product as great as SassaB! ;)

  2. What I want to know is...where is Mary?! I've seen her on my FB SassaB page ( for those of you whom have not "liked" yet) but she is MIA on Product X. Marrrryyyyyyy, where are youuuuuuu?

    And thanks Kerri, I really appreciate that!
