Last night was a "work" night for me and I wanted to get more shows on my May calendar. I wasn't getting any bites. So I decided to try a different approach. I got out my list of "potentials" that mentioned that sometime they might host and I called each and every one of them (really, it was only about 12 calls 'cuz a storm hit and I had to get home). I digress. ANYWAY, I sort-of scripted my calls and went to work and here's what I said: "Hey, it's Andrea w/ PC and this is sort-of out of the blue, but I wanted to ask you a question. I was wondering if you would consider hosting a catalog or cooking show next month because May is when PC has their HWC campaign and $1 from the sale of each special pink item goes to breast cancer awareness and prevention. I've made a goal for myself to raise $500 next month, so I am asking everyone! Would you consider helping me out?" I got 6 catalog shows and 1 cooking show. NOT BAD at all!! :thumbup: It just proves that when you ask - they will HELP - and that truly is a key word, especially when you mention a goal. People want to help other people.
