    Hey Everyone! Question for You Guys...i Just Earned Ss2 Which Came

    All Thumbs!!! No matter how many things I read, I just can't seem to learn how to use the US&G..

    E-Mail Vs Telephone

    Feels Safe I think we all love email so much b/c it makes us feel safe...but I must agree, host coaching is best on the phone...you break through the barrier...email makes you "feel" like you know someone, but once you have had phone convo's you truly make a connection... Think of how nervous...

    What Does "Qualifying" Mean?

    Definition The definition of "qualifying" was explained to me like this: PC gives us the kit, and 3 months (actually like 4 due to the whole Super Starter month 1 being the month you signed, plus your actual first month) and we give them 4 shows $150 or a cumulative guest sales of $1250...

    Ok Hostess Is Excited About 3-4 People Coming to Show!

    Another angle It might be too late for this show, but another way to encourage hosts to book large is to let them know that guests often feel comfortable when there are more people at the Show. They definitely feel less pressure to do the obligatory purchase, because they are getting "lost in...

    Help..catalog Show

    Only $150- I believe that regardless of its a kitchen or catalog show, you only need $150 in sales (excluding the host's order) for it to be a "Show". The catalog show hosts begins her benefits at $150 in guest sales, but only gets the 15% off, no free, or half off products. You qualify...
