    June will be my 3rd SS month, so I decided in order to get the most 'bang' for my buck..I would try to hit $4500 in June. My goals are to make at least a $1000, earn my third super starter and 3 of the bonuses, and earn $300 worth of Fall products for free.

    So, for June, I have 8 kitchen shows scheduled, a booth at a church function, & two catalog shows. What I'm wanting to know is...should I be scared of my schedule & with that schedule, do you think I can hit my goals.

    Thanks

  2. Do you have dates available that are just not filled yet? In March, I submitted 6 shows with a show average of $581.27. My sales for the month were $3487.59. In that there was a $1000.00 show. I think that if you have more dates available, book them. There is no way to count on what your show average will be so I would say if everything goes as planned for you you will be close to your goal. The thing is, catalog shows are hard to get closed and a cancelation or two may happen.

    Congratulations for having such a great schedule in your 3rd Super Starter Month! Just think, if you book more and everyone holds their shows then you may even end up at the $6000.00 level. Continue to offer June dates at your shows and you will see your goal!


    Best of luck!

    That's GREAT! It's a good idea to book more shows if you can, that way incase anyone postpones or cancels, you'll have back ups. My goal is the $3000 mark as well, with 7 kitchen shows and 2 catalog shows. I may even have a show from May that I can't submit until June. I'd love to reach the $6000 mark, but that's a stretch I think. It's been about 4 months since I've had a $1000 show and I'd probably need a couple of those. You never know though!

    Keep up the great work! And having a busy show schedule NOW will help carry you through the summer with the bookings from those you'll hopefully get!

    I ask everyone!! I was out at rummage sales today and struck up a conversation with a woman and got a booking for July!!

    I have been really lucky with my shows, too. I have gotten quite a few bookings from each show.

    God has just done amazing things for my business!

    Congrats to you! You are off to a super start.

    I would guestimate that you will make your goal with 8 shows, 2 catalog shows, and a booth. It all depends on your average.

    The key to making all your shows successful is to do a great job host coaching. Really coach your hostesses to have 20 people there. Offer her a free stone if she has 20 buying guests.

    If you can get your attendance up, you will well succeed your goal. Really focus on host coaching.
