    My new recruit definitely wants to join but doesn't want to sign up for another two weeks because she can't hold her grand opening until June 7th. Any ideas to help her generate shows sales before then to get her quailified in 30 days? I want those bonus points. I gave her almost all the bookings from the show but they won't be until the end of June.

    Is there anyone else that can book a party for her? If not, it's more about her than you!

    Have her do the list of 100. Have her call everyone and drum up some shows. I know the points are important to you, but having a strong recruit with a good start is better for both of you in the long run.

    I've actually got 2 people that are waiting until the end of May to start because of scheduling issues. It's a bummer about the points, but I do want them to be successful in the long run so that they will stick with it and have fun too.

    It has to be about her and what's going to work for her the best. If she feels pressure to do a lot in only 2 weeks of time, it might frustrate her and turn her off. I'd just make sure she knows about all the great benefits of getting in as much as she can right away (all those PC$). Make it about her, and she might just surprise you.

    It might be better for her to wait...it benefits both of you is she can have a strong start. In the meantime, maybe have her send out postcards and emails telling everyone she starting PC...you never know what will come from that!

    Guess, I'm not going to pressure her. I just was wondering if there was anything I could do to help her get bookings before her grand opening.
     
Have something to add?
