______ Meet with anyone who has booked a party and give them a hostess packet. Take a couple of minutes to go over the packet with them and let them know that the goal you are both reaching for is $500. Break it down for her...a $500 party is about 8-10 buying guests and 4-5 outside orders. If the hostess is not local, mail her a packet and contact her to review the contents.

Remember if you are the hostess take advantage of all the hostess $ you earned, half priced items and the hostess exclusives. Choose products to add to your kit that will not come in your Start Swell. You can also purchase some door prizes and hostess gifts to use at upcoming parties. (zipper pouches, nail files, key fobs, etc)
