Spring has Sprung, Time to Schedule
April 1: SPRING has sprung; each week of Spring I’ll share an ACTION with you to get you springing for more bookings, sales, and recruits.
It's time to SCHEDULE
That’s right…time to fill up the month of April with parties and shows because soon you might be hearing the following excuses or reasons for not booking or selling:
In May, “I’m planning/attending Graduations”
The June reason is “I’m hosting a bridal shower/planning a wedding.”
July’s theme, “We’re going on vacation.”
August you’ll hear school bells and “We’re too busy getting the kids in school.”
September’s woe could be, “I need to take a rest from my busy summer!”
October and November and December, “I’m too busy planning the holidays.”
Happy April Fulls Month!

That’s right…it's time to fill up the month of April. Soon you might be hearing the following excuses or reasons for not booking or selling; you'll be hearing...
● In May, “I’m planning Graduations”
● June: “I’m hosting a bridal shower/planning a wedding.”
● July’s excuse: “We’re going on vacation.”
● August's school bells elicit “We’re too busy getting the kids in school.”
● September’s woe could be, “I need to take a rest from my busy summer!”
● October and November and December always bring “I’m too busy planning the holidays.”
While you may think these are the common excuses given by hosts to NOT hold a party, what I've presented here are actual quotes from Consultants/Representative
Every season has its reason for people to say no to buying, booking, or selling. So, before your calendar (and even those of your prospects) becomes too full, fill up April with parties!
Get over those excuses by doing a TWIST with your reasons!
April is the best month of the year (especially when Easter is in March) to have a more-than-FULL calendar so you can draw from a large base of new customers who will convert to your future hostesses and consultants. You might have plans for weddings, vacations, and other events; the beauty of this business is you can trade work now for those plans AND EARN THE CASH YOU NEED IN ADVANCE. Decide now to make up in time and volume for your upcoming activities, and then you won’t feel guilty for enjoying the benefits of taking time for these important family activities.
Do some simple math:
● Book a party next week, before April 8. (Party #1)
● From that party book two more by April 22 (Parties #2 and #3)
● Then from those two, two more (an average of at least one each) to be held by the end of April (Parties #4 and #5)
That’s FIVE parties to get you on a roll.
Now, I realize equations are easy, but getting the results could be challenging. In fact, some consultants, in order to get a booking, will schedule out really, really far…like into next August or September. I can promise you that you might feel good today, but not when the host cancels on you as it gets closer.
Here’s something to think about. If you ordered my favorite Where to Find Customers When You Run Out of Family and Friends today, would you want to wait until August to read it? I didn’t think so. You’re THIRSTY NOW!
So, create an immediate thirst for your host gifts and products, schedule the parties to be held SOON, as in April. Book at least one from each of the five you hold in April and you will SPRING into Summer with sales and bookings. In fact, you’ll be so profitable, you’ll quit giving excuses as to why you can’t hold parties, and be attracting more hosts, sales, and recruits...I’m not FOOLING!
