If there was one business tool that I would say I absolutely “can not do business without” (My Diva Success System Planner not included) it would be my Mobile Office. I do not go ANYWHERE without my Mobile Office! It is either in my office or in my car, and I even take it in to all of my parties! If you need to get organized – and fast – set up a Mobile Office! You will wonder how you ever did business without it!

I love Home Party Games. I know that most people have a love/hate thought process about playing games, but done right, Home Party Games can be very beneficial to the success of your Home Party! The truth is, the more FUN people have at your Home Show, the more likely they are to want to do it again! Playing just a gem or two will get people laughing, having fun, and leave the memory of a fun, relaxed shopping experience with their friends that they will want to do again and again.

Communication is such a critical part in Leadership, that it can truly be a defining factor on whether a company succeeds or fails. Misunderstandings, Assumptions, and simply LACK of Communication are all detrimental to even the best of businesses. In fact, I think it may be THE #1 thing that could make a difference of whether a company succeeds or fails.
I remember stories my other grandfather used to tell of his travels as a Pilot for the US Air Force. He taught me a lot about how a plane flies, and how a “flight plan” is determined and so on. It wasn't until years later that I would reflect on his stories in my memories of him that I started to realize how much flying a plane is like going through life.
As a Leader it is your job to train your team, show them “the ropes” coach them what to do, and more importantly what NOT to do. You teach a new Consultant about Branding, about Gardening, about the importance of Hostess Coaching and how to not “leave money on the table” by implementing a good solid Customer Care Program. You teach her how to Book Parties from Scratch and how to Upsell at a party. You teach her how to BE a Party Plan Diva.

Recruiting is a struggle for many women in Party Plan, often because the opportunity to recruit often knocks very lightly. As a Party Plan Consultant it is your job to listen carefully and understand to subtle clues so you will know who is just making light conversation, and who is wanting to learn more about your opportunity. It is these “green lights” that will help you to become a Remarkable Recruiter.
My favorite movie as a child was Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. As the first full length animated feature in motion picture history, it is still a Classic, and noted as one of the best Disney movies of all time. What I love about really ALL Disney movies is how much of the plot and storyline in these “Fairy tales” can be seen in real life. Check out how Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs can be seen in your Home Party Plan Business.
