CELEBRATING Jim Straw-I GOOFED But Got A New PAPER ROSE Product Idea
Jim created information products at an amazing pace. 700+ over 50 years.
I've only created 65 or so.
So I've got a lot of catching up to do.
The ONE Thing Jim and I agree on, however is personally Testing out the
ideas we sell.
Often I'll get a New Product idea while coaching a client. The effort of
explaining and illustrating a new concept - will Shake things up and I'll
announce out loud - to the startled sm biz owner...
"Why am I not selling this idea?"
IN THIS CASE - I made a Mistake.
And the MISTAKE forced me to improvise. And then I went AHA! - "Why
don't I Test this out. Find out if anyone Wants to Buy this idea."
I'm in a Restaurant booth. A cute little Mexican girl about 4 years old starts
playing Peek-A-Boo with me over the back of the booth.
So I decide to make her a Red Paper Rose.
I start to make the rose and the waitress comes past EXCLAIMS, "Oh, is that
for me! My Birthday is tomorrow!"
I gave her my only RED PAPER ROSE.
What to do.
What to do.
I started fiddling around with an Extra Napkin on the table.
I tried it whole.
I tore it in half. Too short.
I got another Napkin. Got it just Right. (Boy of boy this sounds like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears!)
I stood up.
Walked to the little Girls Mother.
Said, "Para la Senorita Bonita Pequena" and handed her the white paper Rose
Rose Petals and Stem and leaves and all.
She seemed STARTLED. So I said in English. Your Daughter and I have
been playing PEEK -A- BOO.
And gave her daughter my Flower.
For the Rest of my stay I had an Entire Table full of Mexican Ladies - Grandmother, sister, Mom and Daughter - Waving and smiling at me.
And my Waitress Sarah - too.
Plus all of my neighbors at other tables were smiling.
My TEST Question is -
Knowing that the Act of Simply Turning A Paper Napkin into a Rose
Improves your service AND gets You
All kinds of Attention
From Women in Line or at a Sports Bar
or At Networking Events.
Not just at any Restaurant you visit.
DOES Anyone Think A Photo or Video Book
with Specific Directions on how to -
A - Turn Any Paper Napkin into a ROSE
B - Close Clients By Taking them to Lunch And Teaching them Rose Making
C - Flirt Stories - Case Studies And Directions Taken From
REAL LIFE - situations...
Be a product that People Might Want to Buy?
P.S. - I can use some Testing ELVES. So If You want to Learn How to
make a Flower out of any paper napkin. E-mail me at [email protected] - and I'll send you Video Directions.
