Holding a Party Open for More Sales

I had a party 2 weeks ago, only a few guests but the mother-in-law of the hostess said she would get a few outside orders. I called and she said that she DOES have orders and will mail them in to me. Well, that was two weeks ago, and I still haven't received them! What do I do and how do I keep this from happening again?

Lessons From a Bike Ride

You may remember my post a few weeks months ago when I bought a new bicycle to use to help get me in shape for the Party Plan Divas Seminar at Sea. Well, I must admit, ever since I bought it I have been so busy, I have not had the discipline to ride it - until today! Who knew that what was supposed to be a "simple bike ride" could teach me so much!

How To Book Parties from Parties

It seems no matter what I do, I can't get people to book shows. I've tried everything I can think of, but no luck. Also, I never get people to fill out their with list - I overheard someone at a party saying if they fill it out, it will give me a reason to call them! Any suggestions?
