I feel kind of stuck right now with no leads. I have people who said they wanted to book, but either I can't reach them, or I leave messages, or they say no or to call them in May. I'm torn with what to do. After having a bad experience with my last host (I had a long thread on that this month...), I am having a hard time with confidence in calling people. I'm trying to make a game plan, because I don't want to call people several times in one month and be viewed as a pest. But I was tossing around the idea of a Power Cooking Class this month and also including the HWC special to hopefully get orders. But the only date I have available to do it I'm afraid will be a terrible date. I already know of a few activities going on that involve many of my contacts, so they won't be able to come. So do I go ahead and have it anyway and hope that someone will come? It's a great excuse to call people. But here's where I feel stuck, the date is May 30th. So it's kind of early to call people about it now. But my calendar is totally empty (except for one catty show this month) and I feel like I should make some calls to get bookings. But I don't want to call now, only to have to call in a couple weeks about my class/HWC thing. I feel like there's not that many people to call, too, that I haven't already tried the past month or so. I need new blood! But my husband doesn't want me to do any fairs/booths now, because our Saturdays are rare and precious. I feel so stuck! I need to get going, but I just am scared to do anything. I'm afraid of the rejection, I don't know what to say anymore...which angle to take with people on the phone. It never seems to work, and rejection is killing me right now after this last host.
