This was shot from my hotel window this morning. Day 2 is only halfway over as I begin this post, but I know it will be a bit of a late night as we have the Essential Wholesale Event tonight. It’s offsite in Fort Lauderdale.
Today has already had some great information.
- Robert Tisserand’s presentation on busting myths around essential oils was filled with awesome data. This is a subject near and dear to my heart obviously and he presents facts backed with awesome research. I’ll be sharing more of his findings in future blog posts. But one biggie – yes there are benefits to essential oils in soap. (Of course you and I already knew that, but he gives specifics!)
- My tips for the day came from a couple of different speakers, Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company and Tina Howard of Majestic Mountain Sage. Marla pointed out that you can’t assume a retailer will contact you when they need to order. You may need to contact them. Tina Howard stressed the power of the handwritten note. Ergo . . . a handwritten note to follow up with customers who haven’t ordered in a while.
- And now as I finish up the day back in my hotel room – today, my enthusiasm, fun and goodies all came from the fabulous event put on by Essential Wholesale. They bused us all to Fort Lauderdale to the Discovery and Science Place and put on a heck of a party! There was lots of food and drink along with some great giveaways. It was loads of fun and here are some pictures to bring it to you. Enjoy!
