Business is easy when you have the right tools. Talk to any carpenter, plumber, electrician, etc and they will tell you how important having the correct “Tools for the Job” will make work run more smoothly. The Party Plan Business is no exception to this rule. My Top Ten favorite Tools For Success are:
Most of you know that in addition to running Party Plan Divas that I am also still an active Party Plan Consultant. I stay active in my Party Plan Company because of my love for the business, the enjoyment of doing parties, and, most importantly so that I can keep all of the information that I bring to you as The Party Plan Coach relevant, up to date, and EFFECTIVE! With all of the outdated Party Plan and Direct Sales Training out there, I like to be able to say “Divas, I know this works, I did it on Thursday.” So tonight I am blogging from my heart but also from my own personal experience over the last few days.
After this weeks Small Talk Six I was reminded how so many of my favorite people are also my favorite authors!! As much as I love a good murder mystery, I also love reading books on Success, Networking Marketing, and just Small Business Strategies in general.
Because I know that time is precious and that there are literally THOUSANDS of books “out there” to read, I wanted to share my list of my Top Ten, and I would love if you would leave me comments with some of your favorite books that you have read that have helped you either in life, or in business.
Everyone hates to fail – or hates the idea of failing. Even as children we are taught that there is nothing much worse than failing at something. Failing a class. Failing to keep your room cleaning. Failing to get picked for the football team. We put such an enormously negative energy around failing, it is no wonder we grow up to fear that word more than any other.
Most people do not realize that you MUST fail in order to succeed. How many times did Thomas Edison “fail” when inventing the light bulb? How many times did Alexander Graham Bell “fail” with the telephone? It is the education that you learn from each failure that brings you closer to your success. So how do you overcome failure?
Since starting to talk about my love for my iPhone I have been pleased to learn how many of my Divas have one as well!! To today for Top Ten Tuesday I wanted to tell you about my Favorite 10 Apps I use for business on my iPhone. I will tell you, it was WAY harder than I thought to narrow it down to ten.
This week we are talking about the Top 10 things YOU can do to ensure the success of your Party Plan Business!

I am so excited to finally announce our theme for the New Year. Each year Party Plan Divas chooses a “theme” for the year to help keep us focused and motivated. This year I took a tip from Mike, my loving beau, who is an avid poker player. His meaning behind going “All In” on the poker table made me think so much of our industry. You may not always have the “perfect hand” or “pocket Aces” – but you believe you have a winning hand, and with persistence and confidence, you may just get lucky “on the River.”
