Pampered Chef: Bookings Trying to stay active...

    Help! I need a quick idea to stay active. I had 3 shows booked for June & all of them cancelled. :cry: I even tried dangling extra carrots to no avail.

    I have 2 outside orders to add to a show that total $41. I was thinking a Mystery Host catalog show but I've never done one.

    Anybody have any ideas or tips??? Maybe a flyer idea?

    Send out mini catalogs with one of Tasty Tidbit's Sizzling flyers that shows next 3 month's host specials. Go Pamper businesses - doing 2 businesses would easily merit $120+in sales to make your $41 into a show.

    Good Luck. NEVER EVER QUIT! Contact your upline director for suggestions, too - have her help you out of this tight spot.

    Thanks, Scott. I won't quit...I want to keep what I have worked for. I work FT, but will retire in a few years. I am thinking PC will be a good supplement to retirement income.
    Quitting now isn't an option...I already have everything in place for NC! My AD is supportive, that's never been a problem.

    Next month I have 3 shows in 1 week, which is very ambitious for me. Let's hope they pan out. Actually, the 3 that cancelled this month, have rescheduled. June is just a bad month. I totally lost out on SAT.:cry:

    I'll go to work on these ideas.

    The Sizzlers are things that talk about the benefits of booking in future months. So if you have a July host, show her the flyer, which demonstrates what she'll get if her hosts book.

    No more mini catalogs ... oh well!

    I had $100 in orders and had to spend $50 plus to make it a qualifying show ... it was either that, or lose out on a fair that I had already paid for!

    I DO have shows in the upcoming months, but if anything happens I'll be out of luck. Good thing for the fairs, which so far are paying off big time!

    Was that for June? Too many other events for people around here. School ends in June & all the parties, sporting events, etc. make scheduling tough.

    We have a HUGE county fair here next month. 10 Days. Shifts are 2/day X 10 days. The booth is "manned" by one or two of us. Our AD makes all the arrangements. We sign up for shifts. $30/shift. The leads are phenomenal! I'm looking forward to getting my biz back on track.
