One suggestion my upline gave us at a recent training was a Cake & Coffee show. Basically it's for those who don't want to invite oodles of people. They collect orders like a catalog show. Then, they invite a few close friends over for cake and coffee. Armed with cake, catalogs, order forms, and maybe a couple of the latest small products, you and the guests sit around and talk about solving their kitchen issues. The host provides the coffee (or tea, or whatever). I think this is a brilliant idea. My own little twist is that I'm going to market myself as a personal consultant. I've created a 1/4 page card that I'm going to start including in my guest kits (and possibly handing out to contacts, depending on the conversation). Here's what I've come up with. Here's a link to the Publisher file. If someone wants to convert it for those who don't have Publisher, they're welcome to.
