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!
