It's funny how you never know who you'll meet or what sort of relationships come out of these meetings. I wrote a while back about having frozen shoulder, and I had to go to physio for it. It happened that my husband was outside working and was talking to a lady in our complex. She recommended a physio close to our house and so I started going there for my treatments.
I was talking to the medical assistant at the physio clinic, and somehow we got onto to talking about work. Besides working at the clinic, this young lady is also an events/wedding planner. So I told her about my soaping company and she was very excited. She said that many brides nowadays want something different for their wedding favours. I gave her my card during my last visit there and she said she'd take a look.
I went back today for what turns out to be my last physio appointment and the medical assistant told me she loved my stuff. She's looking at buying a condo and when she acquires it, she wants to buy a whole bunch of my soaps. She said the other gal who works there also wants to order some as well. I'm hoping that it will also translate into future sales with her wedding planning.
So what started out as a bad thing (frozen shoulder) has turned out to be potentially positive.
