Just a word of encouragement to all you newbies out there (Haha, like I'm an "oldie" ) Soak up whatever info you can from this site!!! Why? Read on: I'm in SS month 3 and have only 2 shows this month. I was gutted as I've been slowly dwindling on the booking front, I had 4 in December, 3 in January and 2 this month. I was starting to get REALLY worried about March and moving on from there...BUT because of all of the fabulous ideas in here (theme show binder, murder mystery, recipes for microcookers etc) my booking are looking up, up, up! March has 4 dates, with two more people looking at dates just now, and a party on Tuesday to still go to get bookings from! I now have an average of 2-3 show booking leads PER party, and my sales are already around $500 for 10 guests, which is slightly above the average in Scotland. I just feel that the info I've gained from this site has really helped build my business and I want to say: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!
