Ok, I know we all like to brag so I figured I could start this new thread as a bragging area for us... I get to start! I am on SS2 and really really want all 3 pieces of the show to go. Things were looking awfully hard at the beginning of this month b/c my sales were 535.70 for August and 754.55 for September making my total for SS1 $1290.25 and I needed $2709.75 by October 1st to gain the 2nd and 3rd pieces. I only had one kitchen show booked (which is this saturday night) and one catalog show booked which was my aunt in pensacola so that made my goal look a little untouchable. I then decided I am going to have my own Halloween Spooktakular party in my house on October 30th. I was still scared b/c 2709.75 is a lot for only 3 shows...that averaged to be at least $900 in commisionable sales each show. Here's the cool part: My mom surprised me b/c she has been having a catalog show at work for a while now and was waiting until she got the show to be really big before she told me...well, she had waited long enough b/c the first few people were wanting to have their orders already...guess what the total was...$1250.00!!!!! I was so amazed!!! I now get my SS2 bonus as well as my 2nd piece of my show to go!!! Now, I only need $1459.75 (a much more realistic goal) which averages to only 486.58 per show for me to get the 3rd piece and my ss plus bonus package!!! I am so happy!!! I also get to be recognized at cluster b/c I had a $1000 show and b/c I will be having some really high sales this month!!! I told my director and she freaked she was so happy for me!! I entered the show as a kitchen show (because it's definitely believable!!) and it's really my first "kitchen" show entered...all the rest were catalog shows so it's pretty cool to have those numbers on my first kitchen show. Now I can keep my head up on the rest of the month as I know I can achieve my goal without a problem now!!! Good luck to the rest of you with your October month! Sorry this was so long, I'm just really excited!!! I can't wait to hear some of your bragging stories!!!
