I had a host approach my mother and ask for my info because she knew I was a consultant. She wanted to book a show for the end of January so she could get the extra benefits. She is actually a past consultant, so I thought her show would be great, since she really knows how to have a big show. Well, I think everything is going fine until I hear from her a week or so before her show, telling me that she needed to cancel. One of her friends decided to sign up and she felt like she needed to do a show for her instead. She said that she may try to do one for me in the spring. How would you handle this? I told her I understood and that it was alright, but I was really frustrated because I didn't have enough time to book someone else for January. Since she used to sell, I would think that she would understand that it hurts my business and my finances when you cancel last minute. I feel like she made a commitment to me and that she should have kept it. I am happy for her friend starting a new business, but I know that when I first signed, if someone I know already had a show planned BEFORE I signed that I wouldn't expect them to cancel and do one for me. I don't know....just needed to vent....and need some advice on how to keep this from happening in the future! HELP!!!
