Working with the children’s social life

Just a quickie post, wanting to share…

Spring LaunchMy kids, like most, attend various classes and playgroups. Even my youngest, who at nearly 7 months old, already has baby massage and baby yoga classes under his belt, courtesy of BabyNurture! Like any trader worth their salt, I never leave home without a few brochures and a small box of cards (I learned early on that people are interested in browsing brochures, and there’ll always be that friend who needs a ‘new home’ card that day, and have you got one with you?). So a few of the latest supplements were circulated at yoga class, and a box of cards went with me to playgroup as a couple of people needed to stock up. Handily, and a happy coincidence, while at my daughter’s new Pudding and Pie cookery class yesterday, I received an email order from a new customer – people buying while we’re cooking veggie samosas – lovely! This meant I introduced and sold Phoenix to several new people and then came away from playgroup a few pounds richer, around 30 cards lighter, and having chatted to a lady about becoming a trader. All while doing things with my children, so they were happy and I felt like a good mum taking them out and about! Surely that’s what a family friendly business is all about?! Love times like this 🙂

    Great beginnings! So have you designed these cards or is it some sort of franchise? Would be great if the link to your shop was a live link – so I could go straight there. Although it might be because I’m surfing via my phone?

      Thanks very much :-). It’s a direct sales business, so I buy them in and sell them on. No territories are assigned & it’s not £1000’s like a franchise – just £30 to get going. I agree about the link but couldn’t figure it out. I’ll play again with it tomorrow… Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
