That is right! I sure did.
It may not be a big deal to most. But to me, it was. It was a huge step. I know my launch party isn’t until next Friday, which means I have been sort of quiet and not pushed to much for this month. But this morning I approached a coworker who is soon retiring and I gave her the talk. Because I knew she wouldn’t be able to wait till I put in the order.
I thanked her for everything and handed her a mini catalog and took a deep breath. Alright here it goes! Had she heard of Thirty-One, no not really. Would she be interested in it? Other than the fact she adores my purses and such, which she is forever commenting on I really had no idea. But I had to try.
And you know, she was at least willing to listen.
I have a bit of a confession here. This was the same woman who a few weeks ago was talking about finding her passion as her reason to retire. Because she wants to do something she enjoys. And as she sat there telling me this, I couldn’t help but think about the Thirty-One opportunity that I had been toying with. She was part of the inspiration for jumping in to this crazy adventure.
When I thanked her for it, told her she inspired me, her face was amazing. And I sold it. I nailed it. I ended it simply by saying, even if you never look at this, I want you to have my catalog with my information (why not right?) because if nothing more you will look at this and know you inspired at least one person to do something for themselves.
She walked away with a catalog and I walked away with an order. My confidence already growing.
And you know, it wasn’t all that bad either.
