Happy Tuesday to you all!
This weekend was nerve-wracking but oh so wonderful. Firstly, we live in a great neighborhood, with a great community that caters to small businesses. I have kept my eye on the business and networking group in the neighborhood in hopes that I might join them and get some potential leads for new training clients or Juice Plus customers. Then I remembered (about 2 weeks ago) that they were holding a vendor fair this past Saturday. I was hesitant to sign up because my website and business was not set up how I wanted. I hadn’t even bought my business name yet! I thought, how will I be able to sell a service or product that I just started and don’t have finalized yet?! Well, I took a leap of faith and signed up, hoping everything would be, at least minimally, set up before the fair. I had a week and a half to set up my business, get insurance, set up a website, make flyers, get business cards, and so many more things on a to do list 10 miles long. I went into overdrive to get everything done and didn’t sleep much, and it was worth every second of missed shut-eye. The vendor fair went great and I had my own booth featuring Coconut Personal Training and Juice Plus. I had about 4 people ask me about it before the fair even started! What an exciting way to start a day I had been so nervous about for a week and a half straight. We were pretty steady all day long and had over 100 people attend! It was such a great opportunity for me to share my heart for health and wellness as well as get good practice explaining my businesses and what services and products I want to offer. I was asked many questions; some of which I could answer, and some I had to say ‘I’ll get back to you on that.’ It actually felt really great to stretch my wings and dive in head first. The questions that I didn’t know the answers to, were great questions that I’m sure I’ll get in the future and be fully prepared for them after this weekend. I got several leads and felt so full of hope at the end of the day and so grateful that I had taken this leap of faith. Special shout out to my hubby, Andrew, who helped me pull everything together last week and even brought me a few things from home after I’d forgotten them for the fair.
I also had two great friends and fellow Juice Plus distributors stop by for added encouragement. You guys, it was such a blessed weekend, so keep in mind, any time you want to take a leap of faith but are unsure of the outcome and nervous for the preparation and execution of it…just do it. You never know what amazing things will come of it.
