Excerpt

Party plan selling is the perfect vehicle for personal and financial

growth. Whatever your current circumstances are financially or

otherwise, you don’t have to settle for less than you want when

you can have it all as a star of your own “show business.”

Party plan is a business model that anyone can follow. As an

independent business entrepreneur, you partner with a

corporation, which takes care of the back end of the business

(including the products, marketing, administration, and technical

support) so that you can focus on the front-line activities that will

drive your income.

No matter what you call them—parties, shows, classes,

presentations, group consultations, workshops, gatherings,

celebrations, experiences, or demonstrations—parties are the

perfect way to build a business.

Whether you currently work inside or outside the home, a

party plan business could be your route out of debt and into

financial freedom. You can work full-time, part-time, or in your

spare time and still hit the big time.

Why wait for customers to come to you when you can bring

your business into their living rooms? Most business owners

would swap their souls to stand in front of a captive audience in

the warm, friendly environment of their customers’ homes.

If you’re ready to start calling the shots on your life, this

book will teach you how to build a successful party plan business

from the ground up. If you’re already a party planner, you

will learn how to catapult your business to the highest levels of

your compensation plan.

You will create income for today with higher sales, income for

tomorrow with more bookings, and income forever by empowering

others to become successful party plan entrepreneurs.

The sooner you start, the sooner you can start enjoying all

the rewards that will come your way as a party plan superstar:

* Family first

* Financial security

* Friendships

* Flexibility

* Freedom

* Freebies

* Fun

If you are a direct seller or multilevel marketer and your

company doesn’t have a traditional party plan structure, you can

still incorporate party plan concepts into your business. My

strategies will help you communicate effectively with one, ten,

or one hundred business prospects. The strategies will add

pizzazz to your business presentations and fire up your meetings,

training seminars, and product launches.

Many direct selling, multilevel marketing, and network marketing

companies are embracing party plan concepts to reach a

wider audience. When companies stage opportunity nights or

business seminars, they’re employing party plan techniques. The

only difference is the product they’re promoting is the business.

If your product lends itself to demonstration, display, education,

or experience, it makes sense to market it to groups.

Why talk to one person when you could talk to ten?

If it’s new, unique, or innovative, the sooner you establish

market share, the harder you will make it for competitors to gain

a foothold.

If you’re confident that your product offers better quality or

better value than anything that’s available through stores,

telemarketers, or online retailers, party plan is an effective way to

spread the word.

I stumbled into party plan as a young mom. I was raising my

family and working as an elementary school teacher. Every

weekday I had to leave my baby son and two-year-old daughter

with a babysitter, while I was at school. When they were safely

tucked into bed at night, I prepared lessons for my class of nine-

year-olds. Weekends were a juggling act of household chores

and family time. I often dropped the ball.

My children deserved better, but not working wasn’t an

option. The bills had to be paid. When I saw an advertisement

that offered “Work from Home,” the lightbulb flashed and I

picked up the phone. Less than eight hours later a stylish

woman was sitting at my kitchen table. She interviewed me for

all of thirty minutes, and to my delight, I got the job.

Not exactly the job I had expected, but it sounded exciting

enough for me to leave my teaching career behind to sell skin

care and color products as an independent party plan

consultant. That meant swapping a teacher’s salary and

benefits for a compensation plan and a promise that the

harder I worked, the more I would earn. I seized on party

plan as a second chance to be the mom my children deserved.
