    I like that idea of having everyone sign. I usually write a note in myself but it might be nice for them to add....

    When everyone signs it, the host has a reminder of the fun times. Especially when they write something sarcastic. I tell them that it's like signing a yearbook, which usually gets everyone laughing.

    My standard note, that I do customize based on how well I know the host, goes something like: Name, Thanks for opening your home to me and your friends. I just know that you'll love all your new tools. Enjoy these recipes! Ann

    I usually sign it first so that people can see that they can write a note, and not just their names.

    Thanks Ann. I might try this tomorrow! My host is supposed to have 15 guests so I really want to wow them as it's basically my biggest chance for sales this month!

    I usually write "thanks for hosting"...

    So you buy the ingredients for every show you do?
    I send out the invitations for my hosts.

    yes I do and since I have started doing this and mailing the invites, I have only had a couple of cancellations. Like I said I average 2 to 3 k per month and the last few have been almost 4k. I am already at the first level of the sell a thon and have 9 more shows to close this month. I just find that I do better this way. I also control the costs by giving them recipe options that I choose.

    I think the Host program is great and is more than enough, but we all live in different places and what may be the driving force for someone to book in one geographic location may differ in another.

    I purchase all of the ingredients for my shows, and I really push to ensure that my show is an unique experience because there are a lot of PC consultants in my city. I want to offer something that is different from all of the other consultants. So whether that is proving the ingredients or a gift, it can make me stand out of the crowd.

    The "signing" the SB totally rocked at my show today. Thanks Ann!

    Same here...but I have gotten in the habit of only giving the SBRC if she has 15 guests in attanedance. I put the attached flyer in her hostess packet and if she earns one, she gets one!!
    WHAT FUN!! I can't wait to put this in my next booking pkt...
