I pay a teenager candles to call everyone and remind them. I have a script written that takes them 30 seconds to read and get an answer from which they track on the calling sheet for me. I do this because I am busy of course cleaning. And I have my regular holders filled throughout my huge house like I always do, but I set up many tables of product in my family room. I borrowed from friends and neighbors when I didn't have much! I set up my kitchen table with:

1. a basket with tealights (for rsvp gift)
2. a basket of votives (bring a friend gift)
3. sign in sheet
4. basket of catalogs with order blanks paper clipped on
5. nametags

They take what they earned and nametag and catalog. They can look while everyone else gets in. I play four games. The prizes are retired pieces or business boosters all done up in pretty bags and bows. They open in front of everyone. The Best GAME I have ever found it the scavenger hunt because you can sneek in a demo with it and the consultant opportunity. I give out tickets and the most wins for that one. I try to make them quick and funny so they don't take long. Believe me nothing is funnier than seeing 25 people passing balloons for a left right game! Then I pass a plate of cookies and punch around (nothing fancy, I tell them the punch is strawberry pop and gingerale and store bought cookies!) and they order, we add and draw for hostess credit and two more gift bags. The goal for me is Bookings so I always play a game that has to do with showcasing the hostess specials.

I have no control over them at all. The key to that is the games. they want to win and see who gets the free credit so they move FAST! But I truly feel the reason behind the success is totally different than what I expected. They see me in my home environment, in jeans and a nice shirt and socks! They see I am normal! I am truly having FUN! Imagine that all this takes place in a house that is only 4 feet wider than a 2 1/2 car garage! So many of the guests have become good friends after and very loyal customers because I have "let" them into my life. Not only have the rewards been lots of bookings, sales and new consultants but the feeling deep in my heart from sharing my life and love of my career with them. And just think...the only thing I thought I would get out of it was a few bookings. It taught me to let my customers into my heart too and BIG THINGS HAVE HAPPENED EVER SINCE!
