I am so close to earning the Excellence Award in sales that I can taste it! I am $8011 away. I have 10 cooking and 2 catalog shows on calander for April. So, I think I need 8 more. I've been on the horn trying to get more. I think I've got 2 to add, just waiting on an answer. I always do this..wait till the last minute and then think "well, if I would have worked harder in 'x' month I wouldn't be scrambling now!" Oh well, I've set my goals now I'll work my plan. Wish me luck :-D

Go Go Go!!!

Becky - with this being the first year of the Excellence Award, it's a 13 month earning period. Next time around it's the regular 12 months starting on May 1. One of these years I'm really going to get it.

Ahh, that's right, I forgot about that. Hmmm, if it was May, I might be able to do it, but I need over $10,000 - and that's not going to happen in April.

I need $4402.99 to be exact and I missed it last year by righta t $2000 and I need that cash as conference so I'm working this month as hard as I can and praying harder!!!!!! Tomorrow we have a big multi vendor event for Relay for Life so I'm praying for lots of Trifle Bowl sales as well as loads of other sales! AND BOOKINGS TOO! I've got a few holes to fill since I opened up as many dates as I can squeeze in. I've got an amazing group trying to decide on doing a fund raiser and I know that would push me over but they need to say yes first so if you will pray for me... I'll pray for y'all too!!!!!!!

I need $6,499.29...I have a fundraiser and 4 shows...Yikes! I've been working a second job since November, had more sales in November then I did the first four months combined then had a killer February. I couldn't believe it when I received the email saying I was on track in March.

So, today I picked up the phone to confirm my shows...lost one and no answer from another...bringing me to 4. That's okay! I have a great attitude! I know when I can work, and I have lots of leads!

My fundraiser is with 10 different oncology offices. I tweaked the DCB flyer and offered some bonuses that should bring in the sales. Here it is if you want to use it:

Good luck to everyone! I'm picking up the phone and booking shows:) See you on stage! We can do this!!

Woohoo! You go Elaine! Glad it's motivating you!!

I just added ANOTHER for April! I'm at 13 kitchen and 2 catalog.


The Excellence Award used to be called TPC (Top Perfomance Cluster). Check it out on consultant corner for all the details. But the main points is you get to walk across stage at conference, you earn a ring the first year you get the award (a new stone each year after that), you get $400 PC dollars and this year we are getting money at conference (i think). You earn it in sales ($55,000 or in Developing Leaders or in Recruiting)

I don't know why I think that is so funny! I mean cute funny. :)
I earned in sales by the middle of Feb. I am shooting for recruiting too. I really want two categories.

So, I sent a message to a host that is always concerned about her guests specials more so than her own. I told her about the Trifle bowl special and she booked a catalog show. Her last show was $1300! Most of that was outside orders :) So, one more show... YEA!!!!!!!!!!!

Half way there in sales. I have 10 more shows to hold/collect... gonna make it! Now it isn't even about the ring, the title or the money. Now it is just about hitting that sales goal. I know a lot of ppl do $8000 months all the time, just not me. I'm so pumped that I'm going to make this happen!!!

Anyone else have the points calc. disappear from cc? I now show a spa incentive tracker for upper level dir. Guess they think I'm going to promote really quick :)

I'm obsessed with checking my points as they update. Still crossing my fingers I'll earn Ex. Award but have had a couple clx so looking less likely at this point.
