I coach my Hostess as soon as I schedule her Home Show. I use the Your Time to Shine brochure and explain the benefits of Hosting. I help my Hostess brainstorm her Guest List. I set expectations for high sales by inviting my Hostess to join my $1000 Club. I invite my Hostess to explore the possibility of joining my team. I contact my Hostess within 24 hours to thank her for booking, confirm her date and remindher to personally invite her guests and ask, “Can you come?” I’m very clear about when I need her “yes and maybe” list back. I contact my Hostess at least 3 times before her party. I call my Hostess’ guests to introduce myself and let them know I’m looking forward tomeeting them. I encourage them to bring a friend who was not invited by the Hostess. I send a thank you note to my Hostess after the Home Show to express my appreciation. I follow up with a call to my Hostess to be sure her order has arrived. I invite her once again to join my team.MY PLAN TO IMPROVE MY HOSTESS COACHING:“You and your Hostess are partners in success.Every shortcut you take shortcuts your success.”
