Sometimes you will have a bad day. There will be people who say “no” to you, or even be rude. But don’t worry, this is never personal. Most of the times the store is just too busy, and your call just came at a very bad time. Also, not every store is looking for new brands. It sounds counterintuitive in this rapidly changing society, but a lot of stores only want to invest in trusted established brands. Don’t forget that you have something very unique to offer. And if you continue to work hard, there will be stores that want to try your brand.
Always support your brand for 100%. Because if you don’t, they certainly won’t. And don’t forget to reward yourself after every successful next step: your first call, your first meeting and every new store. Grab your favourite cocktail, eat a piece of pie and pat yourself on the back! Literally ! Because you deserve it! Don’t forget you already came a long way.
