February FUN at "meetings"
In February I would use the Valentines Day theme and play on Washington
Birthday (the 21st) as well.
As everyone arrives, point them to a deck of playing
cards for unit or place
decks of cards at the check in table for a region. Ask everyone to
the two or more cards that match the number of booked shows they have on
there calendar. Tell them the cards will be used to play Black Jack so
need to be able to make a 21 if they have that many bookings. If
more than 21, they need the extra cards to match there total number of
shows. If they only have 8 shows they can take an 8 or a 6+2 as long
When you're ready to do your booking talk:
Call two people up at a time to the front of the room
(unit) or play at
their table (region). Ask them to show their cards and find the
winners. You will need to know who has MORE than 21 for later.
Then have everyone look at there hand and ask " How
many of you are going
to Las Vegas in July? How many of you would bet your home or your
car at a
black jack table using the hand you have?" Let them think about it,
" You dealt yourselves that hand! You have in fact placed a
huge bet on the
hand you're looking at! Do you know what you've bet?" Let them
the answers such as " I've bet my dreams" I've bet my
Then tell them they all have a chance at a better hand by booking more
and go into the booking talk!
(region) End your booking talk by having two
people with a 21 come up
front. Pick the person with the highest card over 21 (26 shows up) and a
person with 21 exactly. Tell them that out of the parties that they
booked, 5 of them will cancel. Take away the ace and replace it with
for each player. Then ask them if they still want to bet on there
cards. The person that had 26 up still has 21, however the other person now has
16! Nothing more is needed to be said as the point will be
The broken hearted consultant!
Cut large hearts out of red paper.
1)On them write the keys to our business that go hand
and hand like, "2+2",
"Booking Gifts", "Hostess Specials" Etc...OR
2)write out the leadership levels, unit leader
on one half and you+6 on the
other. Have them match up all the levels of leadership and place
Cut the hearts in two separating the matched words.
You can now do many
things with them!!!
(region) You can use this theme through out the entire
introducing all the talks with a broken heart. Tell everyone you
hearted consultants with broken down businesses that your leadership team
is going to mend today! Have the speaker bring us the missing half
mend our broken hearts! End the meeting by telling everyone "
To make it in
[Company] you have to put your WHOLE HEART into your business!
(unit) (region) place the broken heart pieces folded up
in red and white
balloons. Toss them out and pass them to music. When the music
ever is holding the balloon pops it to see what's inside!
(region) make it more fun by placing a heart that says
" You win a box of
votives" inside one of them.
Pick a broken heart with a 2+ on it and ask what is
missing. Put the
hearts together by discussing the right way to run a business!
The HEART of our Business!
Make a huge heart out of paper. Write all the
levels of leadership
across it starting on the bottom with UNIT LEADER then above it write
UNIT LEADER Etc... all the way to SRVP at the top.
Cut the heart up into strips and fold them up placing
children's Valentines Day cards.
(region) Pass them around, or give everyone a card with
most of them blank
inside. Have everyone open up there card at the same time. Ask
who has the
first level of leadership, unit leader and call them up. Have them
what you need to become a unit leader ECT... Have a leader help you
the heart back together on a poster board.
(unit) Pass out the cards and have them open them up and
explain the level
that they have. Piece it back together in order!
(region) In February, set up an old fashioned KISSING
both! Last year I had
a lot of fun with this one. Before you get too excited, I sold CANDY
and NOT the real things! ( I give the real ones away! Just
Have people donate candy kisses and sell a cup of them
for a few bucks
each. People will be more than happy to pay so much knowing the
money is for
ACS! We now sell small bags of candy for $5 and have no problem selling
(UNIT) (REGION) Also in February, you can wrap up
red tealight in white
lace for people to use as door prize gifts at there parties, and
for $1 each. Set one at each place setting and ask for a dollar
them. I get lace cut out circles at the craft store. Get
someone to donate
the lace and candles.
(UNIT) (REGION) Collect money from your team and send Dianne
Valentines Day card with a check made out to the ACS inside. Enclose
telling her you are sending her this gift of love in her honor for all
she has done for us! That will make her day as well!!!
(UNIT) (REGION) What about collecting George Washington ( the one dollar
for Washington's birthday on Feb 21? Think about it, "
Have 21 up on the
21st or give $1 up for George!"
(REGION) Have a nice restaurant or spa donate a gift for your ACS raffle! What spa or restaurant wouldn't want to advertise to a room full of
ladies and a few men??? Have someone donate boxes of children's
day cards. In one of them write " you win a $100 PL GC and leave all
others blank. Sell them for $1 or $2 each and have everyone open
them up at
Have some FUN!!!!!!! I hope this will help a few of you spice up
meetings a little.
Best wishes, Hank
