"I live in a popular coastal tourist town. There's more than 100 places for accommodation. I have a small cleaning business, providing services for some of these places.
Decidí usar sus formulaciones e ideas para hacer y vender productos basados en el conocido tema de la ciudad.
I am now selling to about 75% of the accommodation businesses - I've increased my business profits by more than five times - I would never have believed this was possible.
Vendo artículos de tocador para huéspedes a base de tema, así como regalos y recuerdos (como jabones y lociones, etc.).
There are no other manufacturers in this area - the closest is about ten hours by road. So my customers don't have to pay freight and they get their orders much faster.
As well, I no longer have to buy any cleaning products - this saves me a bundle - and I've even started supplying other cleaners.
There's a fruit growing area not far from me, so I'm thinking about making theme-based chemicals and cosmetics for that region.
Who knows, maybe next I'll be making apple-scented shampoo for the Big Apple."
