60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: I’ve Hit the Wall. Now What? Part 3 of 4
by Diane Wyzga | April 28, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Painesville, Ohio!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Previously, my friend Joe was trying to sell his product at fairs in Virginia but no one was buying and he hit the wall.
What do you do? Lower your price? Offer fewer selections? Or, give it up altogether as a crazy idea?
Remembering why he started this mad adventure in the first place Joe decides to dig in and stick with the Virginia fair route. It’s not easy changing minds or attitudes or appetites. Folks at the fairs give him a hard time about his product and his prices.
But at each venue he stands outside the mobile kitchen and shares his story – one that the University of Maryland encouraged him to tell: why organic goats, where they are pastured, who takes care of them, how they live, what makes this meat special, and why it’s worth it. He prints up a one-page of the story and hands that out, too. Slowly it changes. Person by person the story draws them in, the goat meat dinners keep them there. How did Joe do it? Join us tomorrow for Part 4 and your story prompt.
