How 99 Cents Can Ruin Your Business

A number of years back, I met my mother-in-law for the first time on her farm in Missouri. My husband had raved about my Italian cooking, famous spaghetti sauce and insisted I cook for everyone.

So, I ran out to the grocery store and bought the best meat, fresh tomatoes and basil, freshly grated parmesean cheese, and even gourmet pasta. I drove back to the farm, pulled out a huge pot and started to cook.

Halfway through, I rummaged the refrigerator for some fresh garlic. Not a clove in sight.  I said to myself “That’s strange, why wouldn’t she have fresh garlic in the frig? “

I rummaged through her spice rack for the dry stuff.
Nope. Nada. Vampires must live here.

Anyhow it was too late and too far, so I continued to cook and tried to make up for with some other spices.

Well, guess what? It came out horrible! And what really made me angry was that I had spent so much money and time and effort into making it, and then one lousy cheap 99 cent missing ingredient ruined it all!

The point here? This dilemma can happen in our home party business!
You work really hard and invest time and money in you kit, product samples, gifts, and prizes. 
And then you get a last minute party, and guess what? You don’t have any catalogs! 
So a really great opportunity is blown because you’re missing a key 99 cent ingredient!

Don’t waste another minute.
Go right now and check on your catalogs your prizes, giveaways, invitations, you know—your proverbial spice rack! Cause baby, you know once you start cooking, you only want to pump out the very best!
