My buddy Joe came down to help me man the booth, I was on my own for a little while Sunday afternoon and I’m telling you it sure is good having a friendly face to talk to and to have someone manning the battle stations while you rush off to the bathroom – once again too much coffee. Joe is a great salesman and I learned a lot just watching how he interacted with the customers. He was cool, enthusiastic and confident without being pushy.Saturday was a long day: 9-6; we arrived at 7:30 and so Joe and I were on our feet for eleven plus hours. Sunday was 10-4, given that we’d sprung forward the night before I was happy for the late start. By the time four o-clock rolled around I was done – physically and mentally.
My son helped out Sunday afternoon and he was awesome. I certainly wouldn’t have been out there talking to customers when I was fifteen. I would have been hiding out somewhere no doubt about that.All in all it was a great experience: made some sales, got some awesome feedback, meet some extremely cool people. This doing your own business thing is a real rollercoaster: one minute you’re totally stoked that you did the right thing, the next minute you’re head in hand asking “what the hell was I thinking?” Right now I’m in the totally stoked mode.
