    Just a reminder that the end of the month is fast approaching… it is this Sunday, May 31st…
    All orders to keep you active for this month must be submitted no later than midnight on Sunday nite, May 31st.
    I know many of you have shows this weekend and you are hoping to close and submit them by Sunday, which would be optimal.

    If you do have a show this weekend, and find that your host will not be able to close, please try this instead of holding the whole show…. please tell her that you’d like to take just $150 in sales from her show (which should include any May Guest special products) and submit that right away. This way she can select one of the May Host specials and all guests who ordered the May specials will get them in a timely manner. The balance of her order can be put in as a June show as soon as she closes and she will be able to also select one of the June Host specials (or- even better, as a thank you, you can offer to buy her the small one for only $6) In addition, any guests who spent over $25 will get a free season’s best cookbook and those who spent over $60 will get two free seasoning mixes… which would give you a great reason to call them (to allow them to pick which ones they want) and it will be a GREAT opportunity to re-connect to see if they might want to book a show or add to their order, or discuss our business as an income opportunity.

    And this way you will know that you will be active for both May and June! J And you’ll have a nice head start on earning free fall products in the June Sell-a-thon,

    This sounds good. Except that it's against policy to submit a show with a different date than when it was actually held. So you shouldn't submit any part of a May show as a June show.

    I'd do it, but only saying that you'll submit the orders that are currently in for the May end of month time, but submit the extra outside orders she's waiting on as a June catalog show.
