I hosted a party last week. An honest to goodness, direct sales, home party. It wasn’t a business launch. It wasn’t an open house. It was simply a party to learn more about the product and share it with my friends. Truth be told, in the 25 years I’ve been involved in this industry, I had only hosted one other party.
My consultant was the best of the best. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, caring, and could qualify as the “Queen of Follow-Up”! And certainly, with my experience as a top field leader, a Regional VP of Sales and 12 years as an industry consultant, it would be a breeze, right?
As I walked a mile in a host’s shoes, I was reminded of how special she is. My advice? Let your host know in all sorts of ways, how much you appreciate her. Free products alone won’t cut it. Spoil her rotten, because she might be doing more than you know!
