I'd like to say all opportunities are good ones. . . but here's the deal. I have a friend who wants me to participate in an open house - free of charge - with Mary Kay, Creative Memories, and a jewelry lady. I was thinking of doing some microwave recipes (it's 4 hours long), every hour on the hour so that people could see me prepare something really quick, then come take a taste of whatever I made after they've looked at everyone's other things. . . I was going to make it a Mystery Host type show - with a drawing and tickets for different things, like bringing a friend, buying products, booking shows, becoming a consultant, etc. The lady in charge (the creative memories lady), wants everyone to bring their own food, and me not do any recipes, because she's afraid it would take away all the customers. Also, she wants me to donate just one door prize and after the event, everyone will get a list of everyone's names. No, these things aren't bad - but is it really worth my time? She was all excited because she "already has two people coming - there might be a lot there!" - I'm thinking if there's only 30 or 40 people there, I would need to do some recipes to show off some stoneware, cookware, etc, to make it worth my four hours. . . What do you think? I'm talking to her more about it at 1:30 today. . .
