Most of the jobs I have had in my career revolved around selling and I will never forget the oft-said, but very true advice I got early on: “You have to BELIEVE in what you sell and you have to LISTEN to your customers in order to be successful.” That is not just good business advice, by the way, it is good advice; period. Action Wipes were designed to be a great product with their all natural ingredients , quality materials and our great customer service, and that has been a strong part of our brand ethos. But it is always humbling and incredibly exciting when we receive unsolicited comments from individual customers and corporate buyers that reinforces the idea we are on the right track (Cue Sally Fields’ first Oscar acceptance speech,: “You like me...”).
Last week, Action Wipes debuted at the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHSRA) tradeshow as part of our partnership with Harbinger. For me to be there at all was humbling. At one point, I had to step back to take it all in as goose bumps ran up and down my body. The response from the industry was absolutely incredible. To think that Action Wipes will now be on shelves across the world is mind blowing and exciting. Based on the inquiries and orders from the show, we will soon be seeing Action Wipes on some very big retail shelves this summer, both domestic and internationally.
Additionally, this week, we received an incredible review from one of our Twitter followers, David Wherry, who had been on a three day backpacking trip – he said “It’s not often that a product comes around with the potential to be life changing, but if Action Wipes is able to be a quick, nontoxic, water free substitute for a shower, life changing is exactly what it will be.”
To that end, I am more committed than ever to evangelize and continue promoting Action Wipes. Thank you everyone, for believing in our product and our mission!
