Remember the three things Jason told me I had to do to move forward with Product X? Find a manufacture, set a wholesale price and a retail price.
Well, I was totally stuck on finding one of the items...I have vloged about it several times, and it became somewhat discouraging trying to find this "needle in a haystack." That is, until I happened to stumble upon a small company that sold this mystery piece in the US.
It was a bold step but like my Mom always says, "You have to ask for what you want", so I contacted this woman and asked her if she would please tell me the name of the manufacture that made this item. By her doing this, it would mean that I would not be purchasing them from her (to save money) and sometimes people are funny about giving away "free" information.
I would like to note that if anyone asked me where I purchased my blank tees for Wear Your Manners, I was always happy to tell them American Apparel. I like helping others out, you know?
Well, I was THRILLED that this nice lady gave me all of her information of where to purchase my "needle in a haystack" and I could not be more grateful! Now I am able to cross one "to do" off of my list and move forward with Product X.
I will never forget this woman and when I can, I will sing her praises for all to hear!
The moral to the story...you may want to keep things to yourself and think, "I worked hard for what I have" but to share your experience, advice and precious information can truly be life changing for someone else.
