Always keep your eyes open to new opportunities. Always take with you your business cards!
I made a point of always having a bunch of my business cards with me, wherever I go.
This year for Valentine’s Day I went for a dinner and a musical show with my husband.
During the break I noticed that the Centre hosting the event had a showcase with different styles of jewelry and there were many people looking and buying them.
The jewelry were handcrafted pieces from local artists who where getting a lot of publicity displaying at that venue.
I approached the person in charge of the Centre Showcase and introduced myself. I gave her my business card and we set a date for an appointment to show her my creations.
I was delighted when she told me she liked my work and offered me to display and sell my jewelry at that prestigious place.

What a great way to take advantage of a promising opportunity.
Kudos to you for being prepared to seize the day – and getting your work accepted into a prestigious new venue!
Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I hope your jewelry does really well there!

It’s true you never know when an opportunity will present itself! I picked up two potential customers when I went to the dentist yesterday while “test driving”one of my new necklace designs – when some of the dental staff commented on it I made sure to give out some of my new business cards that feature various photos of my designs. I always try to wear at least one piece of my own jewelry every day and also be sure I have cards in my purse so they’re handy to give out – just in case!
That’s fantastic! In the right place at the right time!
I must remind myself to get some cards into my bag when I plan on going out.
I too like to wear samples of my creations sometimes also. Sunday I got an order from wearing such a piece. Was I ever so excited because she was much younger than me and I’d desiged a piece that a someone from the younger generation adored! Best wishes to all.
