My husband does think I should have an open house, team meetings or customer theme shows in our home. He doesn't think our house is nice enough. It is built in the 70's with smaller rooms, it needs things replaced -- but there is no money to do the work or even buy the materials. We have 3 kids, the youngest is two and it is a struggle to keep things clean and organized. He thinks it would hurt my business because people would look at our house and think we weren't successful. This is really bothering me. I want to have a theme show every month. I am hoping it would have some sales and some bookings. I realize that I might have some events that had no one show -- so I am concerned about paying to rent a space somewhere else. I have 6 recruits -- but am not a Director yet -- but I know that soon I will be -- but my recruits are scattered (some more than 1 hour from my house) and I don't know that they would all be at a meeting. Do any of you have events elsewhere (church, hotel, firehall)? If so, where and what are the expenses involved? Any advice?
