I’m sorry I haven’t written yet this week, it’s been a busy one. I had a fairly successful week at work which of course is good. We had an grand opening event at my store. We spent most of last year under renovation and so brought a bunch of influencers to come and see the finished product.
I sell appliances and so our renovation consisted of our showroom being upgraded to show the luxury appliances in kitchens. We have 8 kitchens showing product from Kitchenaid, Bertazzoni all the way up to Subzero and Wolf. I’ve learned a lot about appliances over the last year. It’s funny because everyone uses refrigerators and stoves (proper term is range), BBQ (proper term is grill), dishwashers, ventilation etc. But how many people buy appliances? I wouldn’t have guessed the amount of people that do.
Personally I’ve used whatever was in my home without giving it much thought. Now that I have this knowledge and I know what we would buy once we build or renovate our home.
This knowledge has changed me forever. I did not think that how long food lasts in a fridge had something to do with the fridge. Or the type of detergent used can change the life expectancy of your dishwasher.
Although my job is in sales we consider ourselves product experts. We qualify our clients to find what would work best for their families. Sometimes mixing different brands because of how they work is best then doing a matching package.
Anyway, that what my day job consists of. It’s not bad, it can be cutthroat at times due to all the competition which can be hard. Of course the dream is to work for myself, so I will constantly find ways of doing so. There’s a business Luke and I are looking to get into, we are literally waiting on city hall here to give us the go ahead. I’ll discuss this venture further once we can move forward.
