    Product Write-off

    I received $1500 in "other income" from PC last year. I'm assuming this is the products I earned in SAT and other incentives. How can I write these off since I take them to shows to display. What catagory would this fall under? Advertising? Can I do 100% or should I take a percentage since some...

    New catalog exchange

    Have a February guest that got the bamboo snack bowls. She says there too small and wants something else. Can she exchange it for the new snack bowls in the March catalog? I didn't mention it to her but would love to get her what she wants. Thanks....

    Spoon Rest

    A guest broke the bowl to the spoon rest and wants to get a replacement. It is past the warranty. The replacement parts only offer the metal part and not the bowl and I'm a bit perplexed that the breakable item can't be replaced but the metal item can. Thoughts on how to get a bowl replacement...

    Spring Launch Lesson Learned

    Thought I'd see what others learned at the spring launch. I was at the Raleigh meeting today and learned a lot. The ONE thing that I am going to do differently is my "asking." With recruiting, I am often Polly Passive. I think more direct questions can help make me Jenna Justright. What did you...

    Valentine's Show

    I'm doing a show a few days before Valentine's so it seems like an obvious theme. Women all like chocolate so a decadent dessert is easy. What I'm really looking for is a good meal the women could make their man. Any thoughts of what that could be? Thanks.....

    Mailing Address

    I remember getting an email about requiring a mailing address to use credit cards. When does this go in effect? Does this mean that I can never put someone else's credit card on an order? I will sometimes close a show without a payment and then get a credit card a few days later and put it on my...

    Christmas Coupon for Jan. shows

    Don't know how to look this up but I'm sure I read about it here..... I have a potential early-January host. She was very excited about the idea I suggested to her and now have to deliver (that's where y'all come in to help). I suggested that she sell "gift cards" to the hubbys to give at...

    Call Old contacts

    An example of how calling people from way back can be a good thing. 1. Cindy placed an outside order on a show two years ago. She remained on my email list and placed a small web order for a gift six months ago. When I called to make sure she received it, she said she would do a party "in...

    Level for Cookware

    I know this has been posted here before but the answers were unclear to me. The Past Host of an August show wants a set of cookware. The show is not going to make it to $550 unless the set is added to the show. Then, it would be bumped up to the next level and she could get her set. 1. Must...

    Fall Cattys

    What do you do to get the fall catalogs to people who said they are interested in receiving one or hosting in the fall? Do you send the mini or the big catalog?

    Most Costly Mistake?

    So, I've made two big mistakes this month and they are both going to cost me. I feel like a double big idiot. Where was my brain a few weeks ago? The mistakes are just now come to light.... 1.

    Booking - Bounced Check

    I have a guest who bounced a check. She called immediately when she found out (before I knew) with deep apologies and saying to redeposit it. Thankfully, my credit union is only charging $5 for a fee. She would probably pay if I asked her. However, I really want her to book a show. She was...

    Perfect Party Place

    If you could have the perfect place to hold a party for your child, what would it be? How old is your child and what gender? My dh is wanting to start a bouncy-house business sorta like Monkey Joe's or Pump It Up but perhaps expand beyond the inflatable concept. I'm just testing the waters to...
