So last week, I said I'd approach a swanky store to see if they would carry my soaps. That was step one, and it was difficult. Never having really done sales this was a tough thing to do. Fortunately, the two gentlemen who run the store are wonderfully friendly and easy to talk to.
I tend to prepare a whole long speech in my head, and then forget 3/4 of it as soon as I am in the actual situation and this time was no different. The speech I had in my head wasn't the one that came out, although I still got my point across I think. One thing that worked in my favour is that I did remember to bring a sample for them to take him to try out. Fingers crossed that they'll like it so much they'll want to put in an order. I won't know until I call tomorrow thought, so be sure to send positive thoughts my way.
