Okay, so I had a show last night.
As I a getting ready to leave, my ISP is down and I can't print the directions off ( I know I should have done this earlier - lesson learned), then I am loading up the car and it starts to pour and I get drenched. I finally get on my way (in hubby's car so he can take the kids in the van to soccer) and there is NO GAS in it...
Get on the highway and there is an accident and the ramp I need to take is closed...
Get to where I think I am going only to find out it's the wrong George Street...
Have to call the host and tell her I'll be late...eek!
Get to the house to find out I have forgotten the cake mix! D'uh!

Proceed to have a GREAT SHOW poking fun at my trials to get there. And, drum roll please.....I HAVE MY FIRST $1,000 show!!! WOOHOO!!. I also got 2 bookings and a lead on a Pampered Bride show.

I have another show tonight and I was just talking to the host and she's expecting 10-14 people!!WOOHOO!!! I LOVE MY "JOB"!!

That is GREAT! What a good lesson for all of us. Plus, telling your stories about the interesting challenges you faced up until the show is such a good recruiting tool, too. It shows others that you don't have to be perfect to do this job and you just roll with the punches and it turns out ok. Not only will you still get a paycheck, you'll get a really big one! Congratulations.

Congratulations on a great show. Think in my many years I've learned to talk more and hopefully not too much and I find it helps with this business. But always listen to what everyone is saying and watching what they are doing helps. Good luck in the next show as well. :)
