I won’t say I actually failed but do to having to go back and work for my husband and having a child I no longer have time to promote my business of chocolate :(. I plan on restarting again when things get a little less hectic!
As I said before. You can not half ass these things. It is not hard to be successful at any of these selling jobs but you do have to have time and commitment!
Don’t let my pressing the pause button stop you from succeeding!
I will be back!
Wish me Luck!
In March I ended up having 3 shows!
I did over $800 in sales
I wasn’t too far off of what my goals were!
April my goal is to have 1 show (I have zero so far)
$500 in sales
Now it is the true test. I need to get out and call and market myself to get new shows! This is were people either win or choose to lose at the home business game!
I will say that my 2 friends that I am closest to (I don’t have many friends) have no interest in holding a chocolate party. It is very discouraging because a part of me feels they don’t think this is a good deal. I have now just come to realize that they are wrong. They just are Debbie Downers! Well not literally! I have gotten such positive feedback from costumers and other individuals! If you are reading this and you feel that you are not going forward with something because of a couple people in your life, you are doing yourself a horrible disservice! You are the only person that is stopping yourself from succeeding!
I got invited to a Wine Women Wealth business network event to showcase my chocolate! yippee! I am also doing a booth this weekend at a local craft fair.
I am the creator of my own happiness!
Wish me Luck
February I only had 1 show…. my other show had canceled :(.
But did I sit down and say ‘woe is me?’ NO!
I called past costumers and I got myself my own show!
I was $240 away from my next incentive and I knew I could do it if I picked up that phone! I have only been a chocolatier for a few months and I don’t have many past costumers but I got a total of 7 orders that totaled almost $300 dollars in sales! Not only does that give me my next incentive, but I now have REPEAT CUSTOMERS!
I have 2 shows, so far, at the end of March so here are my March goals!
$1000 in sales!
Wish me luck!
Had a great show on the 2nd of February. I, also, have a show this Saturday! Planning on getting at least one show from this Saturday to host a show before the end of February!
I am still getting used to the shipping methods of Fedex, but otherwise no problems or complaints.
Wish me luck!
Why is it so important to set your goals and stay positive?
Well I just posted my goals for February and then about 15 minutes later I checked my email and VIOLA! Someone who had said no to having a party last night had emailed me wanting to do a party! THE POWER OF SETTING GOALS AND POSITIVE THINKING!
DID I REACH MY JANUARY GOALS?
I wanted to do 5 shows…. I had 4 shows!
I wanted to do $2000 in sales…. I did $863 in sales!
I wanted 1 recruit….. I got 0 recruits!
I am very proud of myself! Why am I proud since I didn’t reach my goals? Because I now know what I am doing! I am well past the break even point! I have completed my ‘training’ month and now am better prepared!
4 shows! (I have 2 scheduled so far)
$1700 in sales!
Wish me luck!
