Mr Olympia was a Sellout


After three conventions under my belt I decided to finally get around to posting about our experience at Mr Olympia. It was our first convention and I personally was very nervous. I had spent 2 years and over $90,000 preparing for this day and didn’t know what to expect. It quickly became a success after we sold every pair of glubbs we had brought to the convention. I managed to learn a lot about our product and the needs of our customers. It was an awesome experience and we met some great people.

The day before the expo I was so nervous I couldn’t think about anything else. I remember packing the glubbs the day before the show and hoping we would sell at least 25% of them. It was 2 years of my life and $90,000 of my savings invested into something I had never sold before. I believed in my product and had been using my first prototype for the past year, but I didn’t know that anyone else would appreciate the product and find it as useful as I did. I only had hopes.

When the day started, things were moving slowly. We were practicing our pitch and becoming comfortable with talking to people. After a few hours we sold our first pair of glubbs. As little as that may seem, it was such a humbling experience, of which I have had many over the past few months. Strangely, this one sale must have gave the whole team the boost and confidence we needed because we sold 2 more pair right afterwards. Before I knew it we were selling glubbs every minute. It took everything I had to keep up with the sales team. I was so busy giving people change and swiping credit cards that I couldn’t do anything else. Hours seemed like minutes and all the sudden we sold every medium sized glove. The smalls were next. We managed to sell our last large pair the next morning. We spent most of that second day letting people try on our demo pairs and apologizing to the many people that came back to purchase the second day. People were so disappointed and eager to buy our product that they purchased every single one of our demos, even the ones off our hands.

Needless to say, we had a great time and learned so much. It was reassuring to me that so many people wanted to try out my glubbs but it was really awesome to be able to help people with a need. That was my main objective with the product and the main reason I use mine everyday.
