    Hi my Flying Solo peeps,

    I believe I am now at the crawling stage!!! Having started this little baby 6 months ago I can’t really post a thread on the “Starting a Business” section :D

    I have news that I want to shout out from all those high rises and barbershops!!!!

    Two weeks now into May and I have already invoiced over 200% more sales than the previous month of April…which had seen my highest sales since beginning!!!!! Yipeeee!!!! Whoop whoop dance :)

    I have secured some awesome placements with key specialist Brisbane retailers for my European men’s grooming range. I am also being signed on as the first to market for a new category of men’s grooming for one of Australia’s largest online stores!!!! Shhhhh

    None of this has been easy!!! All of this has been done on the smell of an oily rag, tons of tenacity, always with a smile and the belief that one dogged step forward was better than ever staying still!!!!

    It’s Friday…cin cin ;)

    Sandra

    Happy Sunday Flying Soloist peeps!

    Isn’t it great to be able to share these positive steps forward in growing our collective businesses :)

    We are like-minded individuals sharing in this same process of daring to stand out on the edge when others are quite comfortable sitting back in the safety zone where the view isn’t so spectacular!!! Each of us has for many differing reasons the desire to step out and create something singularly our own!!!!:eek:

    Thank you to all of you who support my journey as I do yours. Remember…by the fabulous Anaïs Nin “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”…inspiring words that I go back to all the time :)

    Cheers,

    Sandra :)

    Congratulations Sandra! What wonderful news.

    I’m not new to the FS community, but I am to this thread and to read this as the first post inspires me no end.

    The fact that you also quote one of my favourite Anais Nin quotes ever also adds to the appeal :)

    Thanks for sharing your success!

    Congratulations Sandra!

    I just checked out your FaceBook page. Have you tried Jimmy Rod’s barber shops. There are about 6 locations. I remember the one at The Barracks on Petrie Terrace and it attracts an upscale crowd. http://jimmyrods.com.au/

    Just wondering if the range includes a grooming kit (tweezers, nail scissors, etc)?

    Great to see you doing well. It looks like a fantastic product.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    Hi Flying Soloists dames & knights,

    Hope you are all enjoying your good-enough-for-the-Queen kind of Monday ;)

    Thanks for the continued words of encouragement!!! :)

    Sam…I appreciate you taking the time to check out my facebook page. Antiga Barbearia is a renaissance brand that brings back the old-school accoutrements of shaving, which includes a luxuriant shaving cream, triple milled soap on a rope, solid oak handle badger shaving brush and a beautifully weighted shavette, for the modern man. Please PM me if you would like further information.

    Thanks also for the suggestion of Jimmy Rod’s…I must go back to James. The range is now in a number of great barbershops in Brisbane including Bou’s For Men which has 10 locations and Esquire Male Grooming. If anyone can suggest other upmarket barbershops in Melbourne, Sydney please shout them out here :)

    Here’s to tea and scones,

    Sandra :)

    Wow Sanrda, well done! Never hold yourself back from celebrating great moments and successes, it helps you remember what you’re working so hard for.

    So what’s your next step? And where do you want to take your business?
