Sample text

Practice your new selling techniques and approaches. Be consciously aware of what you are saying and doing. Start off slow, but start off right. When the season ends, decide the degree to which you desire to continue or expand your schedule.

You can’t produce and market your best product, or greet your customers with your best foot forward, if you’re burned out creatively, frustrated, despondent, or lack enthusiasm.

About six months later, at another show, Copycat approached me and apologized. He had produced twenty of these baskets and hadn’t sold one.

That basket sold for us because it was utilitarian. As a matter of fact, it was designed as a basket to hold French bread.

As I moved on to the more refined atmosphere of trade shows, the store buyers demanded a slightly more polished version to complement clothing lines.
