Default Advice

I recently had a local fellow hairbow maker just totally trash talk my products to people she didn't realize were customers of mine. Her being so good at what she does has made me second guess my work. I love what I do and have alot of business now I am worried that my work is not up to par. I have never had any complaints from any of my customers so Do you think she was just trying to make me want to quit? Here is a link to my pagehttp://www.facebook.com/index.php?#!...03877162983548

Please let me know what you think.

Judging by the amount of fans on your page I'd say you are doing just fine! She is probably just insecure about her own work so she thinks that if she talks trash about your items your customers will think hers are better. I would just let it slide right off your shoulders, not worth your time, obviously you have loyal customers if you found out what she was saying!

I think your products are adorable! I think some people say things, because they can't do the same thing or just insecure about themselves, sad!
You just stay focused on what you do and don't let ANYONE ever make you feel bad about something that you take pride in doing!

Sorry that that happened to you- your customers obviously love your creations and are going to have little respect for someone who "trash talks your stuff"! Keep up the good work!

I just had a look at your things and I think you do a great job. Don't worry about this other person, they are obviously insecure about something. There's so many businesses out there that do the same thing, whether it's hair accessories, clothing, furniture etc. When it comes down to it, people will buy from you if they like your creations. Just use her negativity to drive your success! If you enjoy what you do, then just continue to do it. You have lots of fans on your fanpage. They wouldn't be there if they didn't think you did a great job. Hold your head up hun.

How unprofessional and tacky of the other bowmaker! She is making herself look bad and it would turn me off completely as a customer if I heard someone badmouthing a fellow small business owner. I think your products look great and you should just ignore the other lady. She was probably just trying to win over your customer but it obviously didn't work if they came and told you about it! Good luck and don't get discouraged!

Thank you so much for all the kind and encouraging words I am so happy I found this forum! I was so shocked I didn't even respond to the person who told me,which looking back I am so thankful God had his hand over my mouth so I didn't make myself look bad.
