If you had of said in December 2018 that I would have been trading at ‘The National Pet show’ at the NEC in 2019 I would literally not believed you! my business was far too small, I wasn’t confident enough and how on earth would I make enough stock? oh and a planned re-brand also had to be completed!
Well when an opportunity comes knocking on your door and you just can’t get it out of your mind then you must really want to have a go!
It took eight months of planning, organising, panicking, and lots and lots of lists to get everything ready, BUT we did it in style, it really wasn’t just me but my mum, dad, husband and studio assistants Hannah and Lucy all pitched in and got the job done. I have NEVER been so proud of my business five minutes before ‘The National Pet Show’ opened and I was ready, my stand looked amazing and it made me smile!
Two whole days we met lovely people, had a great time wandering around the show and had a steady flow of sales, all in all a fabulous couple days, as well as signing up for next year …………… with a bigger stand!
It was epic, our hard work paid off and what a wonderful experience it really was, now it’s time to get ready for the Christmas rush and put a plan in place for 2020!
