Hello everyone,

I am so excited that I had to share with everyone. I just had my second and final show for this month. There were about 15 people there. The guest sales so far are over $1200.00 and I was able to get 3 booked shows. 2 for February and one for March.
I am in SS3, so now I will get the SS3 bonus for this month.... All it takes is 1 good show.... For everyone who is feeling down about cancelled show or poor turnouts, ladies don't give up. You next show could be it.... :)

When I do a show, I push the stoneware. I bring my bar pan, medium bar pan, and round stones to all my shows. I show them the size difference and really go into detail the benefits of the stoneware. I try to demonstrate alot of the kitchen tools also. This way everyone can see how to operate them before they purchase them. I myself like to see what I am buying before I buy it. So I enter show with the same mentality. I bring as much stuff to a show that I can carry. It seems to help me a great deal. I hope it can work for you. :)

Careful on bringing lots of stuff

From my perspective, yes on stoneware, or cookware for any given show, in addition to the recipe. But bringing lots of tools to show - is a two-edged sword. While it might up your sales at that event, I believe it hurts you long term, because you are making the "job" look hard. Who wants to carry all that stuff?

I work hard to make it look simple when I come to a show, and to pack as light as I can - and still show stoneware or cookware.

Never underestimate the power of hot chocolate cake (from the microwave in 10 minutes) to help sell stoneware ;) . Recipes attached. Good Luck.

Be duplicate-able! Make it look easy!! (my suggestion...)

I usually only bring two crates. Whatever I can fit I take. Because its true, you want the guests to get the impression, its easy to do. Thanks for the microwave cakes recipes. Have you made any? And how do they come out?

I agree with keeping it simple. I don't want to scare anyone away making them think they have to lug the whole kitchen with them. You can also use bringing less as an incentive to have another show, as different recipes utilize different tools.

When I was doing PC before in the beginning I would do my dishes after the show at the host's house, I quit doing that b/c it could easily turn people away. "You mean you have to do more dishes?" :eek: Yikes! I like the newer way that I have seen now, where you use a storage tub, dump it in there and they don't see the mess. :)

Would you mind telling me what you actually pack to bring to shows? Do you happen to have a packing list or anything? I was just trying to work on downsizing to make my shows look easier - - - but am in the mentality myself that I wouldn't want to buy anything over $20 that I can't see/touch... hard to know what to bring and what to leave home. Would anyone be willing to post their "take to show" lists?

The Show to Go trio has really helped me! I put in what I will use for the recipe(s), the current and next month guest and host specials, any recruiting incentive that PC or myself is offering and anything I am trying to sell otherwise. Like this month I took the BBQ set for Father's Day and of course, the cookware for pan-o-rama. I also like to have one piece of stoneware that is new and one that is really well seasoned. If I am using stoneware for the demo, I'll just make sure to have the new piece to show. If I'm not using stoneware, I'll sneak my small bar pan out of the toaster oven...I'm not "allowed" to take that one because DH usually is heating up leftovers in the toaster oven and the metal pan that came with it is UGGG! I also have catalogs, orderforms and pens in the measure, mix and pour. I like to have a few host packets and recruiting packets, too. I know this is a bit vague, but I do different recipes at almost each show. I get bored too easily :D

It makes me feel better to read something like that. I'm in SS1 and have already had my first two parties reschedule on me. I've got my first show this Friday (my sister volunteered to host one for me) I was starting to get discouraged until my Director gave me the link to here....I love reading things like this. Keep up the great work!!
