When I received the email saying the remaining pieces of SassaB had been shipped, I was counting the days until the shipment arrived at my door!
So when the 3-5 business days had passed, I called DHL and was told, "I'm sorry but it doesn't look like anything has been shipped to your address and we can not locate the tracking number you are providing."
UGH!!! REALLY?! COME ON!!!
I honestly thought, this is it, I can't do this anymore...this whole inventor thing stinks...SassaB will never get off the ground. I was having a full out pity party.
And then...the door bell rings...I can see the bright red and yellow uniform through the glass in our front door and I literately RAN to open it. The DHL guy must have thought I was nuts because I was jumping up and down (really, I was!) saying, "You're here! You're here! Yay! It's finally here!"
DHL guy looks at me and says, "Miss, these packages are really heavy, where could I put them down?"
I was so busy gushing that I had not even let him in yet. Ha!
Besides being thrilled that all the pieces of SassaB had arrived, the point to the story is this: Being an inventor/business owner is a mental roller coaster! Just when you think you're kaput and just can't take it a minute longer, something wonderful happens to remind you that this is YOUR dream, your vision, your hard work and DON'T GIVE UP!
*Note* I called DHL to ask them why they did not see my order in their system and their response: "I'm sorry, you spoke to someone who did not know what he was talking about."
Yes...emotional roller coaster...but one I am happy to be on!
