Tivoli Couture - For Ordinary People with Extraordinary Tastes
It sounds like you have all of the positive reinforcement that you need with the GRAMMY thing and being featured in a magazine. Trust me that shyness and nervousness will all go away after your first big retailer picks up your line, you will become a seasoned pro after that.
If you don`t want to do that still, I would suggest doing a internet search for sales representatives that will sell your item for commission only. This is often a very good way to go and with the publicity you already have it should not be hard to get a rep. to take on your line.
When I started, I was nervous and scared of rejection. It all went away with my first big order, I feel like now I can sell to anybody, no matter how intimidating the situation is.
My company does initial searches to set you up a rep. network if you are interested. I know that you said you are on a budget, so I will tell you that this is something that you can do by yourself to save money.
Best of luck.
