New Endeavor with Three Friends: A True Story
Body Tonique Skin Care has slowly emerged into the marketplace in the past couple of years. By the marketplace, I mean flea markets, yard sales, Facebook friends, family and also my own personal friends with their many orders. Their support was evident by sharing their testimonies and experiences on their Facebook page and on the Website.
At one of the flea markets last year, I met Annette a friendly and sweet lady. I did not realize it then but that day was my lucky day! I was there promoting my first product of Body Tonique Classic. I approached Annette and gave her my best sales pitch and convinced her to try a new product that had never been seen or heard of. I gave her one of my business cards and printed on the back was a simple but effective recipe of an all natural sugar scrub. Annette quickly fell in love with Body Tonique Classic faithfully following the instructions of using it twice daily along with the all natural sugar scrub recipe.
Annette loved the product and what it did for her skin she told her friends and family, she even convinced her husband to use it. Family and friends also wanted to try this product and so she soon returned to purchase additional bottles of Body Tonique Classic. Since her husband worked outdoors he admitted he liked the benefit that it deterred mosquitoes from biting.
With our mutual passion for this product and with our many encounters along the way we developed a very solid friendship. We learned we could talk to each other about anything. Often I would turn to her for her advice and her sage experience.
As I continued to promote this tiny company, she would share her joys and excitement; she helped me overcome the hurdles and bumps along the way never wavering in her belief that Body Tonique Classic was useful and was also helping many people.
First hand she heard the many testimonies from friends, family and neighbors how it helped them solve many of their problems and how Body Tonique Classic was so versatile. Wherever she went she promoted my product to everyone she met. She truly wanted to help and she did.
Chatting on Facebook as we usually did, early one morning, we discussed the topic of a joint partnership. She talked to her trusted and sensible husband Arthur about her desire to help me take Body Tonique Skin Care to the next level and really expand.
Arthur agreed that Body Tonique Skin Care has great potential and is too important to let it stay locally in small marketplaces. Annette and I were both delighted and excited that we had Arthur’s full support. So they came aboard and we formed a partnership and a new corporation. We named it Gable-Barringer Enterprises, Inc.
My position is that of Chief Executive Officer as the inventor, founder and manufacturer. My duties are the production of the line and the research and development of new products as I work closely with my new partners as we build to structure the new corporation and daily management.
Annette Gable is the Vice-President of Marketing and Corporate Secretary, I am so grateful she agreed to take the position. She helps keep us organized on tasks, marketing and building the skincare market to include the brand Body Tonique Skin Care. Annette Gable is my right hand!!
Arthur Gable is our President and Chief Financial Officer. His duties are bookkeeping and making sure the company is running smoothly. Arthur is a wise and successful businessman with practical advice and invaluable business practices. In addition he is great at sales!
With this husband and wife team, Arthur at the helm and Annette managing our day to day operations and sales we are growing in leaps and bounds.
Our plans are to immediately expand the product line and marketing being offered to the public; this launch is on schedule and imminent. Presently new products are in production and our Website is being updated to showcase our expansion.
