    I learned to day I'm too old to do 2 shows in one day! I got through it and when I was driving home from the second, I realized, I just can't do two. My feet hurt, and I'm exhausted.

    They both went well and I loved doing them both, met some great ladies. I got 4 solid bookings (two from each show). I also got one recruit lead. I'm almost too tired to get excited about the results.

    Anyone else crazy enought to do two shows a day?

    Maybe it was just because it took so long to leave the host's homes. I only had 45 minutes to rest between shows.

    I did 2 a few Saturdays ago and had no time to rest in between. I literally left the 1st show and drove straight to the 2nd show and set up. Both went well... I think having no time to rest actually helped me because I had no time to think about how tired I should be.

    One weekend in January (double points LOL) I had a Friday show at 5pm, a Saturday show at 10am & 5pm AND a Sunday show at 2pm. It was totally insane - I was soooo tired Sunday night. BUT I did $1,900.00 in sales that weekend. I don't think I would book that close again, unless it's double points! Tee-hee.

    I did a business fair one night then a womens brunch the next morning I had over 1000 in sales for that month and I was tired, but I think I might do that again, but not 2 in one day.

    I regularly do 2 show in one day in the fall months when I can only do weekends. It is very common that I will book one on Fri night, 2 Sat and one Sunday. I did for three months last year.
    This weekend I did Fri-today...I'm exhausted too! ;)

    Well if I do book in close again, I need to get better at organizing, and how I pack my things. I had a hard time finding things at the second show.

    Oh you are too funny...

    I will plan the SAME demo for all shows for that weekend, that makes it easy to just clean up and pack and go. When I double book Saturdays, I do a 1pm show and then a 6 or 7pm one. When I have my first show, I just wash up the dishes and repack my tote, it makes it a little more challenging for guest lap boards, I stamp as many as possible and just replace the ones that were lost for the late show. It takes a little organization, but if you stick w/ the same recipe for demos, it makes it a LOT easier! Also, of course it won't work if you have shows that are more than 1/2 apart or something. Try to book shows that are in the same town to cut down on time travelling.
