    I just finished listening to this great call! I'm not even sure where it originated, but the info was passed along by my hospitality director. The first speaker is Michael Reeves, who sold (are you sitting down?) 71 bakers in MARCH, yep, in one month! This call is awesome!
    218-339-3699, access code 121946#
    It's a recorded call though, so, I'd act quickly if you want to listen. Oh, and it's a pretty long one. Michael talks first though, and you can fast forward if you have to hang up and go back on (like I did).
    Enjoy!

    That doesn't surprise me. If he is who I think he is, he was at the regional training I went to in February. When asked how many shows folks had in March, he said he had 21. He does it full time.

    But thanks for the info!

    That's over $4500 in bakers alone! If he did 21 shows in March, that's still 3-4 bakers per show. Thanks for sharing...will listen to the call later today. :)

    My director listened today and one of her director friends had a great idea. Instead of the 10% off, which does nothing for our sales, she's going to give the pocket thermometer free when they buy the sets. That way, it's the same amount of $ (or less if we put it on the host order) for us, but it ups our sales too.

    I like that idea because I always talk about how it's very important to check the temp of your meat instead of going by the amount of time it cooks.

    Wow. I love the idea of the Sets! That probably is a great way to increase show averages. I've already forwarded this call to my upline and my hospitality cluster. I'll have to finish listening to the call later. Good stuff!

    Holly - this looks awesome - but there is one typo. :eek:

    It says "Included one of these sets on your order..."

    I believe you meant to say "Include one of these sets....."

    (No d on the end of include.:))

    You did a great job! I haven't been able to listen all the way through the call yet - I tried, but it's impossible with a 4 yr old...plan on finishing tonight after he's in bed!

    I listened during nap time, but I kept having to pause it to make notes. I've copied down the wording on the post calls, invites, I'll type it up later and post it.

    I would love to see it too. She does discribe it well in the call (towards the end) but I didn't take down notes on it.

    I think I sat with him last year at the Leadership lunch at NC. He lost his career sales like 5 times, and he was at the 50K table. Really interesting to listen to

    Ok, I just forwarded the player link to my recruit yesterday. (she just got her kit yesterday). She had booked a table in the lobby of the hospital she works at for today to get her name out there yadda yadda. Well, she listened to Michaels part of the call, and sold one of the sets today. I'm like... I haven't even sold one yet. Anyway, kudos to her. (She's not on here yet, but she knows about it)

    I shared this with my director. She just e-mailed me this:

    Hey, thanks very much for hooking us up with that training call. (Her director) offered the build-your-own package deal last night at her show and prompted 2 people to spend $100 w/free shipping and 10% discount. I just made the cobbler with yellow cake mix and apple filling - pretty good, my husband loves it! I think I'll kick it back to 1 1/4 stick of butter next time and see how that goes, very rich! Gonna try the chocolate at my show on Saturday.

    The only catch I see with offering that deal for free shipping and 10% off with a $99 purchase is the 2 or 3 friends that come to the show together and are each going to spend $30-$40, but hear the deal and just group all their orders on one order and one person places the order. Then I end up paying out and not making out any better - did anyone address that on Chef Success at all? I guess you just suck it up and hope it doesn't happen a lot.


    Anyone have any ideas on how to handle that situation? Do you just go along with it, or do you put the limitation on it that it can't be a combined order. They could just whisper it to each other and not tell you. Maybe it wouldn't happen that much? Too bad I can't ask Michael that question to see if he's experienced it and what his take on it is. :)
