Find the “stars” in your life

The Who Do You Know list is your most important tool for booking parties. After completing your list, place a star next to the people you think are most likely to hold a party or may be interested in the opportunity. The more you talk to people about holding a home party of their own, the more confident you will feel and the more courage you will have to call the rest of the people on your list.

However your friends respond, keep in mind that it is not personal. Their decision to have a party depends on what is going on in their life, and is not about you. Enjoy the process of sharing, and keep asking everybody you know. Only a small percentage of people will host a party, so the more people you ask, the more home parties you will book!

Use the memory jogger below to build your list.
