Tonight is a big night here in our house - our first focus group!
Talk about getting things done down to the wire...I just picked up a new/improved Product X and it's ready to be on display for all our friends to see (and judge).
I actually have an anonymous questionnaire for everyone to fill out JUST in case they do not want to tell me the whole truth. I understand...it's hard to look at someone and be totally honest without hurting their feelings but believe me, I've got my "tough girl" hat on tonight so I can take it. Truly, I would rather know about ways to improve Product X now then when I am standing in the line at the Casting Call.
Dinner is done and it just needs heated up, the appetizers are ready to be put out, the beverages are iced but I did forget one thing...a table cloth for the dinning room table. Apparently, according to my Mom, the one I have now does not match my decor. Oh well....hopefully everyone will be SO impressed with Product X that they won't notice!
I was supposed to work on my pitch today but I'm afraid of sounding too rehearsed so I'm going to wing it. I know the bullet points and it's only 30 seconds long (per casting instructions) so we'll see...just like working best under pressure, I'm at my most entertaining when I fly by the seat of my pants!
I'm off to watch the newest episode of Pitchmen and try to get into my "Billy Mayes" mode!
