Charity and Business

I got a call from one of my customers last week about donating some lia sophia items to her church raffle.  She had booked a show last November from me and is going to do one again this November.  (She is also the sister-in-law of Bill's cousin, so I kind of knew her before the show).  With the donated items (one was a ring and the other was a bracelet), I put in a letter thanking them for their purchase and told them what they could get if they booked a party with me.  I also included a catalog and my business card.

Even though I think I may be getting out of the business, I donated.  Why?  It is great PR.  It is also a tax write off.  Lastly, it was the right thing to do.  She also invited me to the silent auction that my donated things will be given away.  Yeah – a night away from the kids!!

  1. I only have 2 shows booked for the rest of the year, and I don't want to do what my manager is advising me to do. They want me to call past hostesses, put my catalogs everywhere, etc. Well, most of my past hostesses were friends and family who had a show to help me out. I am not going to ask that they do it again. I don't want to leave my catalogs just anywhere because you don't know about the weirdos out there.
