The only thing I can say is tell them to do the recruiting raffle. That way the information is being shared with everyone! The retired grandma to the new Mom and everyone in between. I tell you, you might be a little uncomfortable doing the raffle at first, but once you keep doing it you won't want to quit. For those that may not be familiar with it, this is what I do. (I learned this from Advance Director Maureen Kimmel and I don't know who she got the idea from, but I know it's not her original idea.) Just as I'm finishing my show I say, "Okay, before I finish I have a little exercise I want to do. I have 10 raffle tickets here. What I want you to do is ask me 10 questions about my Pampered Chef business. Then I'll pull a ticket and give a small prize to the winner." (I give a citrus peeler or quik cut knife. I still do the Prize Drawing as I need that information.)Once they start asking, you get a good feel who is interested. This lasts about 10 minutes and we cover a lot. Last night I ran out of tickets. People really get into it! And I have people who don't ask any questions check the maybe on the prize drawing. I just started this in the last month or so. I've signed up one and one of my last week host's used her points for her kit, plus another Host booked a show to use her points to get her kit. On top of that I have several people to invite to the opportunity portion of our National Meeting Day. And this is after doing it at only six shows.
