I didn’t have any clothes until March 9– I lived out of a suitcase for 19 days. All I had was a pair of leggings, two sweater dresses, suit jacket, beauty coat and all my lovely essentials. For those 19 days, I had my starter kit and glamour kit. My first appointment was the second day that I was in Seattle. I never liked to warm chatter because it is when I “turn” MK off. But I did- over and over- I want to lead by example and show you all that you can build from scratch quickly. I think I got more “no’s” in March than I ever did before. At the end of it, we had a great month. It did not come from the work I did in March but from all the work I did before that rolled over. My goal was to get into a restaurant and I didn’t- well, I thought I did for a second but it didn’t happen. I remember when I was building in PA, the same thing happened then and I ended up with four restaurants.
I did secure David’s Bridal as me being the sole vendor and that is wonderful, but you do not want to build a business only on brides as it won’t have a solid foundation. I found six vendor events that don’t have any MK person. Festivals can be a bit pricey but it’s a great avenue to meet women who like to have fun and you know when they come up to the table, that they are interested.
I learned in the past month to not wait until a certain date or wait until my house is unpacked. To tell you the truth, we still have a few boxes and my office is a disaster. In MK, we don’t really need an office. Our office is our starter kit and phone- that is it! I told Brian I don’t need an office but it is nice to say I have one. 🙂 I do have one wall of the office as my “war wall”. It has all my tracking- goals and visions. If you don’t see yourself there, you usually don’t achieve it. Crazy huh. But try it- it isn’t magic but every time you see it, you work a little more and a little more.
