Holiday Glamour Portfolio


Holidays got you down? Is everyone claiming they are “too busy” to book? Do you not celebrate Christmas and therefore feel like the world is stopping for no reason and your business is suffering? Do you celebrate Christmas, but still dislike the excuses?

Try starting a Holiday Portfolio of before and after pics!

This will allow you to still focus on getting faces and bookings. You could even offer a free holiday or winter themed frame with the after pic to those who hold the party on the original date and time, and who have a certain number of guests at the party (I would say 5 for the gift). Turn that frown upside down!

Booking Ideas

Here are a few ideas to get you booking from your classes so you don’t have to get so many leads otherwise. Let’s work smart, not hard!

–> Book to Look Envelopes
Make a few envelopes with “Book to Look” on the outside. When they book their “check up from the neck up”, spa night, or customized makeover, they will recieve the gift inside the envelope. Write or type whatver you like on the inside. Continue reading

Dash Out The Door Class

My adopted director taught this class to me, but it orginally comes from Dacia W. It is to be used as a first appointment.

Dash Out The Door Class

What is a Dash Out The Door Class?
This is a fast skin care class that teaches the guests how to look ready to “dash out the door” to run casual errands in a flash! They LOVE it and it goes much faster than using the color cards. Continue reading

Postponing the Power Start

So, I had this wonderful plan to do a power start…then I remembered something. I have no new leads! I tried asking my friends, co-workers, and old leads using the script, but alas, they are still not interested. Well, that is to be expected I guess…I mean, how many times are they gonna act uninterested before I get the hint? Continue reading

Individual Consultations: From “Keep it Simple #1”


Ok, I painstakingly have been taking detailed notes from Lisa Madson’s CD “Keep it Simple #1”. I only have gotten about halfway so far…it is power packed with awesome information on how to get better results and keep your business simple. Here are my notes on the first 3 tracks, about the individual consultations and getting bookings from your bookings. It includes scripts that worked for her, how she did 102 classes (just from booking from bookings) in her FIRST YEAR as a consultant, and lots of examples. Enjoy learning…so simple, yet it’s like I was hearing it for the first time! More to come from this CD later in the week!

Notes on Lisa Madson’s CD: “Keep It Simple #1”

“Show me someone with a dream to get better, and I’ll show you a winner.” -Gloria Mayfield Banks

Goals of the CD:

-Keep the Business Simple

Simple facts: We book, sell, and recruit.
-Do bookings always hold? No.
The solution: overbook.

-Do guests always buy product? No.
The solution: Keep seeing more faces, more classes to work the numbers.
“People will disappoint you, but numbers never lie.” Continue reading
