The other morning on the way to school with my girls, I mentioned that I wouldn't be home for dinner that evening. One of my twins (Libby) rolled her eyes and said, "now what?"
I explained that Brian and I had sent e-mails to all of our Members who were going to be in town asking them to stop by for a glass of wine at the kiosk outside of the France pavillion
on April 28.
The other twin (Jenny) commented that she had never heard of a company doing so many different things to get established. She's right, I guess. But the funny thing is that the kids only hear about the ideas that actually make it to reality. I don't mention the ones that get shot down! Ask Brian some time about some of the crazy ideas I've come up with that never see the light of day!
Anyway, we thought we try the glass of wine at France
idea since, as a web based business, we rarely get to meet our Members.
So, we hoped some of our Members would stop by and introduce themselves and have a glass of wine. I was there from 7:30 until when Illuminations
started. I figured that even if I wound up standing there by myself, at least I was at the wine kiosk.
Well, it turned out to be a blast. Julie and CY, from Seattle had just gotten their Locker the night before for the first time. She was all excited and CY was wondering what all of the fuss was about. Gee, where have we heard that before????
Pam(matysgranma) and her husband Tom are some of our original Beta Trial Members and have been to Orlando more than either of us can count.
New Members John and Theresa also stopped by. They joined last December and this was their second trip using Owner's Locker
. Using Owner's Locker
was John's idea. He was the early adopter and Theresa was the skeptic. While we were chatting, a group of folks in town for a convention stopped by to hear what all of the fuss was about. I described Owner's Locker
, offered to give them a brochure, but they said, "no thanks."
Interestingly, they came back 10 minutes later and asked for brochures. Hmmmmm.
Pretty soon, some more purple T-shirts rolled up. Laura(jiggerj) and her husband Dave, Marilyn(idratherbeinwdw) and Millie(My3Neils) and her husband, Ken(KNWViking2.0) (you'll have to trust me that he's on the other end of the glass of red wine on the right!)
What a good idea. We saw some old friends; met new Members for the first time and got a group of passers by thinking about Owner's Locker
. I think we'll do it again.
I really enjoyed telling my twins that it was a good idea!
