When I first moved to Florida, I got a job at Lids at the Altamonte Mall. I remember being BLOWN AWAY by the protective spray they sold. I came home and showed my dad how the water just rolled off (ROLLED OFF!!) the bill of the protected hat. While we were on our trip in Norway, he referenced that day as an example of my ability to upsell, a skill that served me well as a Lids employee, as a bartender, and throughout different points in my corporate career.
Today Barry and I went to Lids here in San Diego to get some custom Hiking My Feelings hats made in advance of my speaking tour with REI.
The store manager saw me coming from a mile away. Once he opened up my logo he was like, “we have glow-in-the-dark thread, would be cool for your night hikes.”
OH YES SIR I WILL DEFINITELY TAKE THE GLOWING THREAD THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
YES I KNOW IT’S EXTRA, SO AM I.
So the Lids Upselling cycle is complete.
And now I have a cool hat.
And this time next week I’ll probably be sweating unnecessarily about my #hikingmyfeelings hometown pre-tour debut at Finest City Improv. If you want to check out the action before we hit the road before my speaking + hiking tour with REI, I’d love to see you next Sunday at 7pm. Tickets are free and they are here: http://bit.ly/HMFatFCI
Step 1: Freak out when your logo pops up on screen:
STEP 2: Go home & get in the darkest room in the house: office closet
Step 3: Lights out! Glow up!
Step 4: Invite your husband into said dark closet to glow with you!
UPDATE: If you would like to purchase a hat, enter your info here and I’ll send you an invoice for the hat + shipping this week and update you on when they’ll be shipping. I’m checking on costs and shipping and stuff now, so if you’re interested, fill out this form and I’ll be in touch! https://mailchi.mp/581e116c0adf/hmfhats
