I recently submitted about $70 worth of product samples to the buyer at a large country store chain. I was so sure that my products (gourmet dip mixes and a fun frosted walnut snack called Squirrel Bait) would be perfect for their stores, as were many of my friends (both personal and business). Well, today the letter of doom came, and although I know the chances of them picking up my products were slim, I`m still really bummed about it. I know it`s just business but it`s still hard. My day started out so well! Isn`t it weird how one little tidbit of news can send you spiraling downward? Will I ever develop a hard enough skin so that stuff like this won`t bother me? And if I do - is that even a good thing?
I`m going to go upstairs and hug my husband and kids and watch some mindless TV for a while I think. Thanks for listening! If anyone has anything uplifting to say, I`d love to hear it!
