QVC the Place For Me?

Posted on Monday, June 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

I’m blogging from the “cyber cafe” inside the QVC campus in West Chester, PA.

A few months ago, my high school pal Trina asked if I’d be interested in helping her husband, Jeff,  sell their coiled garden hose product on QVC.  Brother Weems and coiled garden hose, a match made in heaven, right?

Since they live in Oregon and it’s a plane ride and atleast a one night stay overnight to do a 5 minute show here, why not send someone else, namely me, who lives an hour away.

So after weeks of intensive training in hose technology and QVC sales philosophy, I’m here awaiting “showtime”, at about 4:30 today.  Hopefully it’s just the first of many successful visits!

(Don’t expect me to be Billy Mays, RIP, it’s not that kind of presentation.  Nor will I be ShamWeems, like the ShamWow guy.  The host runs the show, I’m to be like a guest in their house)

…several hours later…

Sure was bright outside…they could’ve told me we’d be out in bright sunlight!
