It's Hard to be a shy salesperson!

I am almost ready for tomorrow.I am so nervous.It is hard to be a good salesperson when you are shy.I have been trying to overcome this problem for a while.I still get this sick feeling before each event.What if nobody comes? I try to think only positive thoughts.Well I have games to play, lots of refreshments and lots of jewelry, and my friend is coming to sell Mary Kay .We are gonna do our best to sell out.Say a prayer we need all the help we can get.Thanks! I have to go bake a couple of cakes now.I hope you have a great weekend!


  1. That is so exciting!!! I think that once the butterflies leave your stomach, you'll have a lot of fun. Good luck!!

  2. I hope they leave soon!Thank you for the luck I will take it!lol

  3. Once it gets started time will just fly by! Good luck!

  4. I have not done a show in forever. I used to get nervous too. I am sure I will get nervous the when I get back in the ring. I know this sounds funny but I used to turn my radio up really loud and blare one of my favorite rock bands cd’s on the way to the shows. There is nothing like a little head banging to get you in the craft show mood. lol

    I hope you have a fabulous show and sell out.

    Good Luck, Heather

  5. Thank you all for your sweet comments!

  6. Good luck! Hope you do awesome!

  7. Everyone is going to come. Watch.

  8. Oh my gosh, Tam, I thought I was the only one who got this nervous at shows.

    I love being in my shop, creating new jewelry, but when it comes to selling it in person, I'm the worst. At my last show, a friend showed up and sat behind the table with me. She made a sale within minutes. When she left, I only made one other sale for the whole night! Sigh. It really doesn't help to be shy when you're trying to sell something, does it?

    I hope your show went better than my last one did and that you were able to relax and have a good time ... your jewelry is really lovely, so I'm sure you sold a lot of it! ;)

Women Over Fourty 8)

This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

My Favorite Words Of Wisdom and Inspiration8)

You must live for another if you wish to live for yourself. ~ Seneca

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

'Life is too short and friends are too few.'

I love this!

What make's you smile?

Smile it makes you look younger ! ;)
