Say that 10 times fast. My whole life is mats. I know we all take work home with us, but that usually applies to actual work or problems from work. I find myself noticing our products (or similar) all over the place. From the Marble Fatigue Mat at Costco to the Jumbo martial arts tiles at the DoJo by my movie theater and the carpet logo mats I see everywhere.
I find myself inspecting various products to see if they are ours or if they compare. Often, they are our products and unfortunately for the various businesses, many other times they are not our products and look pretty “cheap”. One of these days I need give those business owners my business card and the opportunity to get a product that will last, and is most likely less expensive. All I need is a little courage, because I’m not a very pushy person- It’s easier when I get to talk to you guys because I’m really just giving you more information on something you already want or need.
Am I the only one that finds themselves being an employee outside of work? I think it’s probably that it’s just become second nature- and maybe a little pride? Every once and a while a friend or family member will say something about needing kneeling pads, or a yoga mat or something we carry and I find myself very eager to just start spewing all the information I know about those products and why ours are better than anybody else’s. What is that?!?! Let’s be honest, mats aren’t the most fascinating thing to talk about but for some reason I’m progressively more aware of their existence. Please tell me I’m not alone! I know you can’t comment below…but feel free to call me (877.777.6287)! I’d love to hear your stories.
