Book Parties Like a Boss

Booking your calendar FULL of parties is a great way to grow your business.  After you conquer your Facebook and home launch party (plan to “launch” with a few parties in a row! ;)) – it’s time to get just 2-4 more parties set on your calendar in the next 2 weeks. Often times Guests at your launch parties don’t often realize you’re playing the role of the Partner and the hostess. It is helpful to remind them that you’ll do all the “work” and their only job is to invite their friends, hype it up and be a cheerleader. This often reassures them that they don’t need to set up a Facebook event and do all the posting!

Build Your Dream Team

While you are still in learning mode, the idea of adding someone to your team may sound daunting. However, sponsoring (the Trades of Hope word for adding team members) is the very best way to grow your reach, impact, and business from the very beginning. It’s not mandatory by any means, but it does put you on a path to be a future Leader which comes with a pay increase! In the meantime, you will be your new team member’s sponsor and your sponsor will continue to help with training and support, while you cheer on and learn alongside your new team member. Before you skip the post in your Facebook parties about asking questions about the business or shy away from mentioning it in your home party, take a few minutes to think about the impact YOU can create on another family by sharing the business opportunity. Whether they are looking for some additional income (really, who isn’t?!) or if a mom is looking for a hobby to make her own, just by simply asking a question like “Have you ever thought about doing something like this?” can invite a conversation about joining.
