I did my very first cooking show last night and it went pretty well. I was so proud that nothing really major went wrong. I was so nervous, though! It was really bad at the beginning and I started off talking about the stoneware, and I forgot half of what I was going to say! Luckily, I had a great crowd and they jumped in and said what they liked about the stoneware, which brought everything back to me. There were two former consultants there and they said they didn't even realize I'd forgotten because I was able to pick it right back up and keep going. I'm so relieved everything went well. It's about a $300 show so far, (we close on Sunday) and I got two bookings! Thanks to all of you guys for the great ideas, such as book to look. That went over very well. I'm so excited to get on to the next show now that I've got one under my belt. One thing I really liked about the show was that the crowd was so familiar with the products, they weren't afraid to speak up and say what they thought throughout the demo. I loved that, because it made me feel more at ease. I must remember to encourage that at all of my shows!
