I have my flyers everywhere here and I have also dropped them off at local businesses to introduce myself.
I'm actually going to be a vendor at the main army post exchange so I will be a mobile diaper-shop...LOL. That will be about once a month.
Aside from that I can't really tap into the military and solicit too much on post. It's part of post regulations due to ethical issues. (i.e...my dh might be that woman's dh's boss and therefore may feeel pressured to buy etc.) For this reason I am not even able to go to the military clinics to talk about cloth diapering because I am a business entity, nor can I hand out my business cards on post.
: I'm sure people do it, but I don't want to over step my bounds because of my dh's position. (He works for the HQ of the division). In fact, I had to consult the legal people here on post to see what I can and can't do.
So unless I know for sure that they are in the same ranks, I don't hand out a card to another military wife.
I got a call today from another hospital at the next town over. I have a trial workshop to do with her next week and she will let me know if I can participate in the parenting classes
. So I am crossing my fingers! The reason why I am trying to go through hospitals is so I can reach the mainstream community.
I am part of a women's guild here in town (they are my support group IRL) and we are going to have a powow in a week to talk through their contacts. They have grown and lived here in this town so I may have a better in through them.
Thanks for the engouragement.
I am not giving up for sure. I totally believe in what I am doing!
