    Dealing with No Show Holds: Tips for Getting Booked and Staying Motivated

    My month of August was very full. However, I only had two shows hold. I'd contact and get the bookings, but after I mailed hosts their packets, I never heard from them again. No responses to emails or multiple voicemails. I don't think people realize this is income for our families. Does anyone...

    Holding the Host Packet Hostage

    I started sending invites for my host about a year ago. It seemed to help reduce cancellations. Not sure that it's helped sales/attendance, but I'm sticking with it. Since some of you don't send/give a host packet until you get an invite list, I'm going to try that approach. I had half of my...

    Holding a Fundraiser at Church's Rummage Sale

    A church is having a Rummage Sale to make funds to upgrade their church kitchen. I thought this would be perfect to contact them to see if I could hold a "fundraiser" during their 2-day sale. I was thinking I could set up a booth and make a Wish List for the church. Customers could either buy...

    theOne Thing Holding Her Back...

    is being in front of people... She's not sure that she can do the talking. I know she is shy, but I would hate for her to not try this because of that. I have shared with her that that's a concern for a lot of people. I told her about the 10-10-10 sort of shows. Any other suggestions?

    Waiting in the Holding Pattern: What Can I Do Now?

    I feel as if I'm a plane in the holding pattern. Everyone's on board and I'm ready to go, but have to wait to take off. I received my kit, I've booked 7 shows and now I'm just waiting. And waiting, and waiting for that first show. I've got a catalog show that's probably going to close this week...
