Out of the thousands of suppliers that Walmart has, they picked ME..a small town girl from Ohio to be their “lead supplier” at the 2019 Open Call event this year.
I believe I was asked because over the last 2 years working with them I..
always went the extra mile - if I needed to drive 4 hours to help a store manager with my products, I was there.
I problem solved - I didn’t have a million dollar budget like my competition so I got CREATIVE and pushed the limits on social media to spread the word.
Walmart asked me to speak at a mini corporate event in Columbus & say a few words - I didn’t “wing” it. I wrote a 3 minute impactful speech. thanks to Derrick McDowell for the help!
When I walked into a store, I acted like it was my business - I treated each associate with respect, asked how I can help and improve customer service for them and my customers who buy RedHead Wine
If you have a mindset that you will absolutely do what it takes to succeed, great things will happen. This is a highlight of my speech with the CMO. Instead of using the spotlight to talk about me, I used it to highlight my hometown and the impact you can have as a growing small business. Be kind today everyone! Push yourself and great things will happen 💞
