First up, is HSN which was so kind to even consider my cutting boards for their on air show but ultimately declined. This rejection was sad to hear on a early Monday morning, but a little easier to handle because I knew it was a long shot. I’ve found that my products being made in the US cannot compete with the pricing of the products made elsewhere and this makes for hard negotiations. Ultimately cutting boards in general do not sell well on air and because HSN has tried to sell other brands of boards on air and they didn’t sell well……….. But how can you compare my boards with those other boards? Its like trying to convince that boyfriend that broke up with you cause he just doesn’t like you to take you back. It just doesn’t work.
So……..this is me loving rejection.
i am going to let it soak in,
revel in it,
swim in it until my fingers get all pruney,
bask in the sunlight of rejection,
oh how i love rejection,
ultimately it will bring me knowledge of how i can do better,
how i can try to negotiate better,
how i can learn to take criticism with ease,
it will make me tough,
it will make me inspirational,
it will make me feel inspired,
i’m feeling better already……
i am going to use this new found rejection knowledge while waiting to hear back on another shenanigan that i have coming up……..
hopefully the answer will be a yes……
because i hate rejection.
