I am having a really long run of bad luck. I haven't been able to book a single party since December, I did have 1 catalog show in February with sales at $180. I'm still getting push back about having to pay the holiday debt off. I've tried everything. I've called everyone I know, even booked my own party (no one showed), asked friends and family for referrals (even offered incentives for doing so). I've offered free cooking shows. I even went to a booth, that my upline director asked me to attend since she knows how hard I've been trying to get my calendar filled and everyone I talked to turned me down and the ones that seemed interested didn't want to provide me their contact info and instead asked for mine (hopefully they'll call but I'm doubting that will happen). I've offered a surprise gift for the first couple of people who do a show for me... and all to no avail. I don't know what else to do or where else to turn for help. I'm almost to the point where I want to give up. But I'm not there just yet. I am however feeling a bit of low self esteem and a lack of motivation since all I seem to hear to "NO". I can say that though I've had a bad past few months, I did sign my first recruit at the end of February. I am hoping to remain active in March and April but it's looking like I may not make it. What has worked for you all? How do you get back in the game? Are there other things I could be doing to help my business? I don't like to fail and I don't want to give up, but I myself will not purchase $150 in products each month just to remain in an active status. Any advice will be taken... good or bad. Thank you all so much!
