Some of you may know that I decided to take a risk last December and get a booth at Licensing Expo 2016 in Las Vegas in June.
For those of you that didn’t?
Y’all! I TOTALLY took a GIANT (read: super spendy) risk and got a booth at Licensing Expo 2016 in Las Vegas!!
I am Booth C103 for anyone going! Come see me! I am super nice and my booth is super cute and I have super adorable things to give away!
I didn’t really know what I was doing, and didn’t want to spend too much more than I had to, so I looked for any and all FREE advertising and publicity opportunities.
I was featured in the Licensing blog here and here (because I TOTALLY already have a successful licensed product as a result of their FREE Matchmaking Service!) and I entered a contest called One to Watch for exhibitors debuting new brands.
AND. I AM A FINALIST!!! I am super, crazy excited and cannot wait to get to the show and learn and experience and meet people! I find out if I win on Tuesday, but even if I am not the winner, being a finalists is HUGE and pretty much a giant WIN for me either way. I wish all my fellow finalists lots of good wises and luck – I am in amazing company indeed!
Not too bad for someone who doesn’t really know what they are doing, right?
Jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down, y’all. FLY!
