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!
A few weeks ago I did a video on Lapboards – one of my favorite Home Party Business Tools. Just in case you missed it, you can check it out here:
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.
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!
QR Codes were originally created for tracking parts in automobile manufacturing, but they have caught on quickly and are now being used for everything from marketing, information sharing, and customer care. Simply put, you can scan a QR Code with your Smartphone or other device, and you will be directed to whatever site that QR code is linked to.
One of my favorite business building tools costs literally pennies and can add hundreds or even thousands to your monthly retail volume, fill your calendar or even build your Diva Empire. What little tool is this powerful? EasyScratchOffs. Check them out:
Email has pretty much replaced every form of communication – fax, letter, telegram – even phone calls. According to radicati.com, there are approximately 3.1 billion email accounts Wordlwide. With Smartphones becoming more and more popular, it is expected there will be 531 million wireless email users in 2011, with that number growing to 1.2 billion by year-end 2015. Even more staggering is their estimated number of emails SENT Worldwide on a daily basis – 294 BILLION. That works out to be 2.8 million emails every SECOND.
One of my favorite Recruiting Tools is a Brag Book. Simply put, this is a simple binder full of personal pictures, awards, and thoughts about how your life has been enriched by being a Party Plan Consultant.
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!
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!
