Several years ago while searching eBay for Gardening Tools, I ran across a company called eFavorMart.  I was wowed not only at their awesome assortment of personalized goodies, but at the PRICE!  Everything from customized organza bags, matchbooks, napkins, favor boxes… but all at a price that was much more reasonable than I ever would have expected.  eFavorMart is geared mostly towards weddings, but with a little imagination, you can really come up with some awesome tools to boost your home party plan business!

Like how about using their Pink Personalized Favor Boxes for the “Book To Look” Games – 100 for$39.99:

Do you have a local “Mom and Pop” style restaurant or Pizzeria?  Why not donate some personalized Coasters for them to use for their guests to use and advertise your business to everyone who dines?!  100 on sale now for $18.99

Pretty up your game prizes for pennies with the Sachetto Favor Boxes – my favorite of course in Fushia!  100 for $31.99

Gardening Gift for $.18!?!  Sure – how about little Match Books!? These are great for Candle Consultants!  You can also donate them to local smoke shops, or local Martini Bars and Restaurants!

They also have AWESOME prices on the little mini bubbles! You can wrap an address label with your business information right on these little guys, and hand them out to kids at the park, in the store, or in waiting rooms.  The moms will be grateful to have something to entertain her kids, and it is a great way to begin talking to the Mom!

In the years since I have enjoyed ordering all kinds of personalized items from eFavorMart.com.   They are a fantastic company with a great turn around time, and top notch customer support.

Check them out, and then come show off your goodies on our Message Boards!

Time Management is very near and dear to my heart, as the owner and creator of The Diva Success System which teaches Party Plan Consultants how to be successful and build their business in as little as 30 minutes per day.   So when I needed an app that would help me to not only organize MY time, but that of a busy family as well, I knew Google would have  the answer I needed! (I did make one boo boo – the app is not free, but for $6.99 it is WELL worth every penny!)

It is no secret that I am a huge lover of all things Apple.  My iPhone4 and iPad are loved like members of the family.  So when I find an App that I love, I have to share with everyone!

AroundMe is probably my #3 most used app behind Calengoo and TheWeatherChannel.   AroundMe uses GPS to locate your exact location when the app is launched, and will then tell you everything that is near – Gas Stations, Grocery Stores, Hospitals, Banks, Hotels, Movie Theaters… you can even search for a specific business using their search function.

I fell in love with AroundMe the first month I had my iPhone when I was out it the outskirts of Tallahassee Florida for a party.   I had foolishly forgotten about the time difference between Pensacola and Tallahassee, so I was on the verge of being late to my party when I saw my gas light come on.  Naturally the party was WAY out in the boonies, so I went to my party, praying I would not run out of gas before I found a gas station (in the dark) on the way home.  After my party I hopped in the car and called Mike to put him on notice that I may run out of gas, and he would then have to travel the 2 hours to come get me.  He was not thrilled, and reminded me of AroundMe. Turned out I was less than 1 mile from a gas station – heading the OPPOSITE direction from the Interstate, so without AroundMe, I would never have found it.

AroundMe not only lets you locate the venue you are looking for, but will show you a map, guide you there step by step, give you the phone number to the location, and even let you add it to your contacts for use later. I absolutely love it!
