    Hi there everyone! I'm not really sure where to post this, so I thought I would try the most active section. I joined PC on Friday, August 21st and have my first show booked on this coming Saturday (August 29th) If we are planning on closing the show on September 1st, should I be using the catalogs from August, or the new catalogs and which Guest/Host specials should I be offering? This one has me stumped. Thanks everyone!

    It's an August show, so you use the Spring/Summer catalogs, and the August Host/Guest Specials. You have until September 15th to submit it. The only problem you may run in to is if a guest orders a item that is being discontinued, like the thermometer, if it sold out.

    Thanks Holly! I really appreciate your help! Glad the Home Office sent me summer catalogs in addition to the Fall/Winter catalogs. :)

    A consideration, aside from the end of season part already mentioned:

    This show will not count towards your August sales commission, but towards September, if it closes September 1. It will not count towards any August consultant promotions, but it will also NOT count towards September consultant promotions. In other words, it will not count towards the bag incentive for Sept 1 - 15 (the show would have to be held and submitted Sept 1 thru 15 to count for that).

    I point this out, because I missed two incentives last year for a similar situation - July show closed August 1, and I missed both the July and August incentives.

    This is true. Just one more thought. You can ask your host to close in August, if you coach them a head of time, it is possible to close even the night of the show. There is nothing that says it has to stay open. You will get paid faster if it closes in August.

    You will have to put the date in as September 1st or no one can order the new items. They also could not get the August special (the free cookbook for $60).

    I have a show on Fri Aug 28th. She wants to close her show Sept 1st because of the metal bakeware. So I'm just going to submit it as a Sept. show. I also gave her the new catalogs. I don't think there would be a problem if you do that.

    It isn't a big no no, just make sure you use the right specials.

    It is against policy to change the date of a live show so that it doesn't match the actual show date.
