Here is a little entrepreneur tip: I put a sample of my lotion in the bathrooms at the craft fair, along with samples at my booth. I also put my little sign up in the bathroom telling everyone who we are and which booth they can find us at. If you have a product people can try, give samples out! It makes a huge difference!
Let me give you a little history about my goat's milk soap and lotion start. Believe it or not, I have been making soap for nine years! After I tell you my first experience, you might be surprised that I kept making it!
I had a book called The Natural Soap Book, and decided to make this soap to give as gifts for Christmas. The book is excellent by-the-way, but there are some things I learned the hard way.
My nine year old was just a baby, barely walking at the time. She was pretty content while I was trying this soap making deal out. Once I had everything mixed together, the book said to stir until it saponifies (starts to trace). Sounds easy enough, right?
I stood there by the stove, stirring for four hours! I had a baby crying, hanging on my leg, wanting mama, yet I could not touch her due to the lye. That soap would not saponify, and I finally gave up, discouraged. Not a good way to start, huh?
Aaaah! The trials of entrepreneurial minded people.
