was so cool ! Staffing yesterday’s event was definitely the highlight of my summer internship with COOKIE!
I met up with Patrice and her assistant Staci. That was the first time we met in person and she is one inspiring person! Just seeing her with this vision of promoting females in business and turning it into a real business herself from the ground up, networking and creating good ties with people really showed me how dedicated she really is. And I so appreciated seeing that especially as a first impression! She may be small, but she doesn’t let people push her around and she truly has a solid mindset to me that see can make anything she wants happen.
I happened to ask her about why we didn’t get a chance to meet with that one lady, whose name I won’t mention. She basically responded by stressing how important it is to have a team of like-minded people behind you to handle business inquiries and things like that so you won’t have to stress yourself out by trying to do everything. So she never responded back.
But at Trillectro, Patrice would be so proactive by engaging and targeting women to stop by our table, hand out cute and stylish business cards, having good information ready, and also having cute t-shirts for sale as well as buttons and glow sticks. She also had ties with people that were performing or MCing on stage and told them to shout out the COOKIE table as a promotion too! And after that, a few women came to the table because “they just shouted you guys out and I wanted to see what it’s about!”
She was telling me about how she had gone to Trillectro last year as a spectator just to get a feel of what is was like and deciding if it was a place suitable to launch her first ever promotion for COOKIE.
With this being the third month of physically pushing the brand, knowing what she wants and how she wants it, her natural ability to network and create ties with anyone with something to offer and her drive will definitely keep her business going in the right direction! THIS is what I hear about all the time and now I’ve had a chance to be in the mix and in a sense, watch someone’s hustle. COOKIE and it’s creator are awesome and I truly wish them all the best!!! <3@11 months ago
