If last nights focus group was any indication on how Product X would do, then looks like it could be a huge success!!!
First off, I have to say a BIG thank you to all of my friends that showed their support and attended. It was a true testament of friendship!
After socializing and eating dinner we all gathered in the kitchen/bar area for the "pitch". I have to admit, I was pretty nervous. I had not rehearsed what I was going to say because I thought it would be better to wing it. What I have learned is that it is much better to have your script memorized so you can be confident with your pitch.
That said, the first pitch I made was pretty darn good but when it was time to do it again and time how long it was (can't be more than 30 sec.) I totally flubbed it!
My friends had some EXCELLENT feedback and really took a close look at Product X. Believe me, I was hit with some pretty tough questions - which is great because now I know the answers to those questions in case they come up at the audition.
Luckily I had typed up an anonymous questionnaire and feel confident that everyone felt they could be totally honest.
There was a great suggestion for another name for my invention in case I can not use the one my daughter came up with, some things about Product X that never occurred to me but best of all was the question: Would you buy Product X? 9 out of 10 circled "yes"!!!!
I was up at 6am writing my pitch to memorize and almost have it down. Next up is the 2 minute demo but for now, I am going to enjoy the rest of the weekend with my Husband and two cutie pies...
