Pampered Chef: I need a boost

    I have always been attentive to my business in the evening by staying on the phone doing follow-ups from 7-9 p.m. unless I have a show. BUT...recently it is everything I can do to stay motivated. We are taking the first three weeks of September and going out west so maybe I am in vacation mode? My last two weeks of August is booked....6 shows, 1 catalog, 2 festivals. My last few shows sales have been a bit down (maybe the economy is catching up with me?) and that is a little frustrating for me AND people won't call me back!!! UGG! I only have a few days at the end of September for shows so I am trying my best to fill them and it seems a little early to be calling people for October. Last night I went into my office and got on the phone, made two calls, left messages for both and said "forget it". I need a jump start!! HELP:(

    It's NOT to early to be calling for October! I have 4 shows & 1 FR booked for October with people who have been wanting more knives!

    For September - Use your August Shows to feature the DCB. That for me has been enough to completely book September!

    If you need a boost, step up on my knee. JK :)

    I was feeling the same, but I was remotivated at my Cluster meeting last night. So much so that I was a little ticked I couldn't make calls when I got home at 9:30pm. LOL

    Hang in there - use your vacation to r-e-l-a-x and then hit it hard when you get home!

    I have had a very busy year so far and am feeling a little burned out. The vacation is just what is needed but it is not for another 4 weeks! Thanks for the boost!
