Party Plan Demo Cases

One of the obstacles I had to overcome as a new Party Plan Consultant was... how do I CARRY all of this STUFF!?! Because I purchased one of the larger demo kits that my company offered, I literally had 80 or so products I had to tote around from party to party. Being the Diva that I am, suit cases just wasnt going to cut it, so I headed to the internet to see what I could find. That is when my love affair with Yazmo began.

Catalog Purses

I love catalog purses. What better way to scream "I am a Party Plan Consultant" than to carry a purse that SHOWS your catalog right in front! The problem - they were always so EXPENSIVE! So I was totally thrilled when last year, Karen from TRN Designs contacted me about doing a review/giveaway of her hand made catalog purses!

Marketing Tools and Gifts from eFavorMart

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!

Direct Sales Party Booking Incentive

Booking Parties is the real lifeline of the Home Party Plan Business. Without Parties... you really do not have a Business. Sure, you can have outside random orders, but it is at the Party that the real "magic" happens. My mantra always is - One party a week you are maintaining a business, two parties a week you are building a business!

Carolina Pad

Another one of my Faves comes from Spark & Hustle - the Carolina Pad Personal Card Holder. I am a big fan of Business Card Holders that keep your cards looking clean, new, and professional even when getting tossed around in a purse of briefcase. The Carolina Pad Personal Card Holder does just that - and even has slots for your most used cards or pictures (which is what I use mine for) I love being able to show off my Little Divas while fishing a business card out of my purse... they ARE my "Why" after all.

CalenGoo App

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!

Vision Board

One of my favorite tools for success is a Vision Board. A Vision Board is simply a visual representation of your wants and dreams - all mashed together in one place. There is no "right" or "wrong" to a Vision Board. The idea behind this is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, what you want to drive, how you want to impact the world, or where you want to vacation, and by doing so, your life changes to match those images and those desires.
