I almost missed a great business opportunity today!But I didnt…..
Today I was walking in the mall rather quickly as I had an appointment and I had limited time to shop for what I needed. This young woman in the kiosk says to her co-worker “There is your next customer” as she points and smiles at me. They were selling some type of hair styling Tool. My immediate gut reaction “no I am in a hurry and I don’t want you to mess with me hair!” Anyone that know me knows my hair is super important! And I am a hair Product freak and has if just prefect. And then I stopped and said to myself ” let her give me her pitch, what do I have to lose? Seriously it is just my haird for Pete sake. How vane are you Christine?” Well it was the best ten minutes I spent today! Not only am I going to buy the hair product I immediately realized there was an opportunity right in front of me to talk about my business and see if it would be a great fit for her. And how could it not…this girl was not taking no for an answer in a nice way! So I pulled out my card and I said “You are amazing and you need to learn about my business because you would be fantastic.” She said ” Can I do this from Florida?” And I said ” You can do if from anywhere. I am doing it right now!” Long story short this girl is moving right near my Florida home and I have a lot of connections for her personally and professionally. I just put my house up for sale and her Aunt just got her realtor license. This girl says shs is tired of making money for other people…right up my alley..be the ceo of you… and she had been crying all night just not happy with her career and life path …it was kismet! I said “cry no more. I haveEye brightening cream for you to use and a new business to join. Send me your resume and I will help you network for a job and you can still start your own business at the same time.” The excitement in her eyes made my day. Regardless of she joins my business, made someone smile, I listened to their pitch and learned some selling techniques, I made a friend and she may have other friends interested in my business! And that is how if works in all of ten minutes! Don’t Miss The opportunities that are right in front of you!
