selling project life on the home shopping network
David and I saw the movie Joy on one of our date nights several months ago.
Oh my goodness.
Just adding that link to this blog post and watching that trailer again made me cry. I’m not even kidding. I realize it’s “just another movie” for most, but this story struck all sorts of chords with me. Aside from the witty character development and beautifully executed film style (I’m no movie critic; just enjoyed the story)… I was feeling ALL the feels in that movie, which took me completely by surprise. I honestly didn’t know what the movie was going to be about. I had never heard of Joy Mangano. I didn’t even know there was going to be a connection to HSN! The feelings stirred up were mostly because of some similarities to my own story in business. Not quite the same family disfunction (ha!) … but the way that Joy had to work so hard, valiantly fight the fight to protect her business, and stand her ground when others were trying to bring her down? #InsertMoreTears And can we talk about the deer-in-headlights scene when she went on-air for the first time? Yes! Yes! That totally happens!
Oh for real. It’s like I was re-living so many of my own experiences. So after I had a good cry, you know what I did? I kid you not… I told my colleagues that I was ready. I was ready to sell my product on HSN. Sign me up. Let’s do this! Aaaand I went back to the theatre to see the movie a second time and brought my team.
In just a few short days, I will be headed to Florida to go on air at HSN – Home Shopping Network. I’ll be selling Project Life®! You guys. There’s not even an emoji for these mixed emotions I’m having. Back in the days of Creating Keepsakes, I was actually an on-air guest on another shopping channel several times… selling other company’s products. So crazy. So stressful. So much pressure. Kind of fun and kind of exhilarating in a way. Just over 3 years ago Project Life made its debut on HSN for the first time. At that time, I personally wasn’t ready for extra travel and more commitments. My friend Lisa Bearnson was the on-air guest that sold our product and she did a fantastic job.
So, enough of the backstory. Let’s move on to what I’ll be selling on HSN, shall we? And seriously — will you watch? Will some of you tune in and be nervous with me? Will you shop? Thank you in advance for your support. Seriously!
I’ll be showcasing and selling 2 new Project Life Core Kits, 2 Value Kit bundles, and a bundle of Photo Overlays! The Modern Core Kit and Little Moments Core Kit have never been seen before, but we’re giving you a sneak peek right here.
