How to Sell a Product to Nordstrom – A Little Inspiration!

How to sell a product to nordstromI love inspiring stories. So when I read an article about a girl who got her product into Nordstrom at the age of 15, I had to share!

The article is about a 15 year old girl  named Madison who created a product called FishFlops. They are flip flops with fish designs on them…very cute. Either way, she has sold more than 60,000 units of her FishFlops product and is now a $1 Million+ business! Wow!

At first I thought she had her parents handle all of the business aspects of  FishFlops, but then I read the following:

“I create the designs, approve the samples and attend tradeshows where I interact with the store buyers. I get ideas from the ocean, beaches, books and magazines. I like changing up the colors based on what I like.”

So cool! She learned how to sell a product to Nordstrom and she made it happen!

Bottom line – If a 15 year old can do get her products into chain stores, why can’t you?! 🙂Click Here to read the article.

To Your Success,
